Standard Health Clinic Insurance Coverages

Health and wellness clinics can greatly benefit from wellness centre insurance should an accidental or unfortunate event arise. Most clinics need two types of insurance: Medical Malpractice Insurance and Commercial General Liability Insurance.

Despite your practitioners each carrying their own insurance, medical malpractice insurance will protect your legal entity from being named in suits for services performed by health practitioners and other employees in your clinic.

These can include, but aren’t limited to, allegations that they failed to live up to a required standard of health services or otherwise caused injury.

Commercial General Liability Insurance can provide protection against personal injury claims like slips and falls (unrelated to healthcare and fitness treatment) as well as allegations of property damage, libel/slander and false advertising.

Both medical malpractice and commercial general liability insurance can help protect your health wellness centre by providing coverage for:

  • Lawyer’s fees
  • Legal costs
  • Out-of-court settlements
  • Awards for damages

Give Your Health & Wellness Facility Holistic Protection with these Coverages

Commercial Property Insurance can protect your health and wellness clinic with coverage for physical structures, expensive medical equipment and contents following a fire, flooding, sewage backup, vandalism and other named perils. You may also need:

  • Business Interruption insurance to replace income lost after an insured peril.
  • Extra expense insurance to cover the costs of relocating and setting up a temporary clinic after an insured peril.
  • Product Liability Insurance to provide coverage in case a naturopathic, homeopathic or other wellness product you develop and/or administer causes bodily injury (e.g., an allergic reaction).
  • Cyber Liability & Privacy Insurance to cover the costs of restoring data and systems, ransomware demands and notification costs, among other expenses caused by a breach of your wellness facility’s network and records.
  • Employee Theft Insurance gives you protection in case of theft or fraud (such as credit card fraud) caused by an employee of your health and wellness clinic.
  • Employment Practices Liability (EPL) Insurance can provide legal coverage in case a suit brought by a current or former employee alleges that they were the victim of harassment or discrimination at your clinic.
