Helping your clients look and feel their best can be rewarding work. But like any profession, it’s not without its stressful days. Protecting your health and wellness clinic with the right insurance coverage can relieve you of some of that stress and the worry that a single mistake could ruin everything you’ve worked for – allowing you to concentrate on providing the best health & wellness care possible.
Types of Health and Wellness Services
A health and fitness facility insurance provider can help protect your clinic if you provide single or multiple primary care services including:
- Acupuncture & traditional Chinese medicine
- Compression therapy
- Massage therapy
- Naturopathic Medicine
- Pelvic exams and physiotherapy
- Spa and esthetician services
- Speech, language and hearing therapy
Standard Health & Wellness Clinic Insurance Coverages
As the term ‘healthy & wellness’ crosses a wide spectrum of services that include both medical healthcare provision and wellness services, despite your practitioners each carrying their own insurance your health and wellness clinic will need Medical Malpractice Insurance to protect your legal entity from being named in suits from services performed by health practitioners working 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.
Another standard insurance coverage included in a body wellness centre insurance package is Commercial General Liability Insurance which can provide protection against personal injury claims like slip 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 defence costs
- out-of-court settlements
- awards for damages
