Claim Examples

CLAIM SCENARIO

Patient Notification and
Credit Monitoring Costs

A computer is stolen from a reception desk area containing the medical records of approximately 6,000 patients. Since the insured has MedPro’s cyber and privacy liability coverage, a breach coach is hired to determine the appropriate course of action and a forensic firm is also hired to define the scope of the data loss. The insurance covers the expenses associated with notifying all impacted patients via U.S. mail, regional media and website, as well as reporting the event to Health and Human Services and four state officials. 

NOTIFICATION COSTS: $10,000

DEFENSE COSTS: $8,000

FORENSIC COSTS: $7,000

TOTAL: $25,000

RESULT: MedPro's cyber and privacy liability insurance would have covered the entire $25,000 loss.

RESULT: MedPro's cyber and privacy liability insurance would have covered the entire $7,000 loss.

CLAIM SCENARIO

Network Security and Privacy

A doctor looks up a medical record on a friend without consent, unbeknownst to the owning doctor/employer. The friend sues the doctor for a breach of privacy rights. Since the insured has MedPro’s cyber and privacy liability insurance, an attorney is hired to defend the owning doctor.

TOTAL: $50,000

RESULT: MedPro’s cyber and privacy liability insurance would have paid the entire $50,000 for the defense and covered loss.

Patient Notification and
Credit Monitoring Costs

An insured inadvertently leaves a public portal open, resulting in the private data of 10,000 patients being exposed.

In addition, MedPro’s cyber and privacy liability coverage results in the hiring of a law firm to provide breach coach services, notify state and federal regulators and coordinate a public response. A notification is sent to all affected patients via U.S. mail, as well as regional media and website, a call center is established to answer questions from the affected population and identity monitoring is offered to all affected patients.

NOTIFICATION COSTS: $12,000

DEFENSE COSTS: $7,500
