Samos Surgical Risk Insurance is North America’s first insurance solution designed specifically to protect individual's against the risk of accidental death during surgery.
It works similar to Life Insurance in the sense that if the policy holder dies during a covered procedure, the beneficiary would receive a benefit starting at $20k.
Most elective procedures are covered. From cosmetic surgeries to cardiac valve replacements.
Quick & easy
No medical exams. Apply in 5 minutes
Most of our premiums cost less than US $100.
Most insurers will not cover a person if they have a surgical procedure coming up. Samos SRI covers 85% of all elective procedures.
We understand that not everyone might have a financial plan and be able to get insurance before a surgery comes up. We’ve designed Samos SRI so that Individuals can get coverage when they need it most.
Medical procedures have evolved significantly throughout time but they’re still not 100% risk free. SRI was developed to help lower the financial stress often felt before a surgical procedure, so you can focus on recovery and the road ahead.
