CoverWell is the brainchild of founder and personal injury attorney Patrick Tighe.
When his wife experienced serious medical complications after two different medical aesthetic procedures, Tighe saw firsthand how poorly the liability insurance system functioned for the patient–and the provider. There were out-of-pocket medical expenses to mitigate the injury.
There were months and months of legal wrangling as patient and provider were forced to become warring camps. It didn’t make sense.
Determined to offer a better and more affordable solution for consumers and businesses alike, Tighe and his team spent over seven years taking a deep dive into the world of medical aesthetic services. Reimagining the professional liability insurance business model, they forged partnerships with insurance providers, creating a brand new kind of program.
Experienced spa operations expert and management consultant, Kim DeOrsey, is CoverWell by InjectSure’s Director of Business Development and Client Liaison.
Mr. Tighe partnered with board-certified plastic surgeon Daniel Kapp, M.D., who has performed many reconstructive surgeries on patients who have experienced complications from cosmetic procedures.
Kapp is also Chairman of the Department of Surgery at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center. Previously, Kapp was a clinical instructor in general and plastic surgery at Ohio State University College of Medicine, and an Anastasi Fellow in plastic surgery and junior faculty member at Boston University Medical Center.
