Protecting against emerging risks
With the COVID-19 pandemic, virtual care utilization has exploded. It’s become a lifeline for patients and healthcare providers alike. Beyond the pandemic, virtual care will continue to play a critical role, as it provides safe interactions and greater access to care, and lowers costs.
However, it is important to consider the following issues associated with insurance for virtual care organizations:
Insurers may be reluctant to cover — and may seek to exclude — virtual care consultations involving COVID-19 or other conditions.
It may be unclear if virtual care insurance policies extend to bodily injuries that arise from healthcare services and technology activities, depending on the policy structure and design.
Patient Compensation Fund (“PCF”) states have specific rules and regulations that may complicate compliance with both the PCF rules and those of CMS and state health departments.
New risks continue to emerge, such as technology errors and omissions, as well as intellectual property rights and potential IP infringement.
PII, PHI and other personal data are at high risk across any virtual health platform, while robust data security and cyber liability protection is a real and evolving risk.
