Malpractice insurer ChiroFutures Risk Purchasing Group (RPG) has added Information and Network Security Insurance Coverage to Chiropractic Malpractice Insurance Program policyholders.
The inclusion was approved by State Insurance Departments in 2012 and provides coverage for information and network security, media liability, regulatory privacy proceedings, customer notification and credit monitoring expense, and electronic data recovery and replacement expenses.
ChiroFutures co-founder Dr. Anthony Carrino said, ”The inclusion of this coverage for the emerging area of Cyber liability risks demonstrates ChiroFutures’ understanding of the complexities of today’s Chiropractic practice environment and the need to protect Chiropractors for these risks."
Members opting for the coverage will also be provided with access to "ID Experts" data breach consulting lifeline and/or its crisis advisory services.
The ID Experts web portal offers valuable data privacy news, articles, and checklists.
Chiropractor’s Malpractice Insurance Program provides broad protection and defense coverage, which include emerging areas of liability for practitioners, such as Regulatory Board Defense, Medicare/Medicaid Billing Error Defense, Information Privacy Wrongful Acts, and Peer Review Committee Defense.
The program is underwritten by Admiral Professional Programs on behalf of Great Divide Insurance Company as well as Nautilus Insurance Company in Arizona, under administration of Sonoran National Insurance Group.
