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.
Insurance of clinical trials in Belarus
We are constantly expanding our contacts to local underwriters.
Through direct access or in partnership with local insurers we currently offer coverage for clinical trials in over 170 countries.
We are pleased to announce that we now have the opportunity to offer insurance coverage for clinical trials in Belarus for our customers.
We entered into a cooperation agreement with one of the major Belarusian insurers, specializing in life science and clinical trials. This enables us to offer our services as a special broker and extend proband insurance for Belarus,
starting beginning of 2020.
The insurance coverage will be made directly in the country, adhering to local specifics. The insurance conditions comply with the legal regulations of Belarus and are in line with the requirements of the ethics committees. There are far-reaching possibilities for safeguarding this: The damage to the test person’s health by the test drug or method of investigation can be insured now. In addition, it is also possible to detect unintentional errors and omissions in the selection of study participants, investigators and specialists, to the point of the payment of legal costs.
For the procurement of insurance coverage, some special information and documents are required from the sponsor of the clinical trial.
We will be pleased to send you further information on request.
Please do not hesitate to contact us.
