How can we help

We pioneered Virtual Care insurance, first offering it in 2009. Since then, we’ve continued to evolve our offering with the changing market needs and landscape, to what it is today; a holistic solution that is easy to work with – just one policy – designed to provide integrated, tailored coverage for growing digital health businesses - and just one policy to renew.
We have dedicated claims experts for each of the key areas of liability within Virtual Care including healthcare, technology and cyber to make handling a claim as smooth as possible.
