Eric Lowenstein the CEO of Tego Insurance
Mr. Lowenstein, who founded the firm in 2015 is well aware that with this new surge in business, medical practices from large facilities to individual medical practitioners can no longer rely on individual medical practitioners. As Mr. Lowenstein says, all practitioners need their own insurance to respond to any adverse outcomes that may arise from their patient care. He knows that many practices face risks that are too often not properly covered by a practitioners’ individual policies.
The Need for Medical Professional Indemnity Insurance
For many healthcare professionals, staff errors, practice protocols, and system failures have the potential to contribute to sub-par patient outcomes, which in turn exposes practices to complaint or legal action that fall outside of their individual policies. Plus, while the industry is on the rise, many in the healthcare sector still do not have any cyber cover, as well as not having life science or clinical trial insurance is leading many in Australia to be underinsured.
