Travel accident insurance

Ethics committees in Germany increasingly recommend obtaining travel accident coverage in addition to clinical trial insurance to cover the direct way from the test person to the place of the clinical trial and back. Until now travel accident insurance was only possible for German test persons. In multinational studies the tested persons were insured differently.

Now it is also possible to provide travel accident insurance for studies which do not take place in Germany.

This allows the investigators to cover all subjects participating in the study, regardless of the country in which the study takes place.

Clinical trial insurance Germany

The legal situation in Germany on liability and insurance of clinical trials is regulated in the Medicines Act (AMG) and the Medical Devices Act (MPG). In addition to the insurance requirements, it also defines the coverage amounts/minimum coverage amounts per patient (EUR 500,000 or at least EUR 500,000).

Some ethics commissions in Germany now require this coverage per subject for all subjects in a study, especially for high-risk studies, so that the sum of coverage per protocol
would be very high.
We work together with insurers who offer special solutions.
Please talk to us – we are happy to help.
Through special concepts, we can offer you a higher insurance limit per protocol for your study or, on request, a sublimit per patient
of EUR 750,000.
