We often wait till something urgent reminds us of risks to act upon - which is why Samos created ADIM to give those faced with the uncertainty of surgery an additional option
Samos’ founders have backgrounds in health-tech, med-tech, and insurance, but came together around a single mission: to provide peace of mind to those having surgery. They started by creating the world’s first Accidental Death Insurance for Medical Procedures (ADIM) and offering it on-demand, like travel insurance - a quick, simple and modern way for patients to get coverage when they need it.

Our Story

In 2020, Samos’ Founder, Eric, was gowned & waiting on a gurney for his surgery when he realized he didn’t have life insurance. He had just left his job and was no longer covered by the group, life, or AD&D benefits of his previous company

He started Googling his surgery as his thoughts were filled with all sorts of “what ifs”. Where there are well understood risks, you could usually find mitigation in the form of insurance. Should the unthinkable happen, he wanted his family to be taken care of. Eric was unable to find any such insurance.

Fortunately, Eric made it through his surgery & recovery but the experience stuck with him. In digging further, he found that many people have little to no insurance. And for those who do, they may not understand what is or isn’t covered. Many AD&D policies actually exclude death during medical treatment & surgery

Eric went on to team up with health data expert, Matt, and insurance expert, Leon, to develop insurance that could address this unique need. This lead to the founding of Samos Insurance - providing a quick & affordable way to provide surgical insurance in case of accidental death
