Health and wellness professional liability insurance protects you from claims ranging such as misrepresentations and good faith violations.

In some cases, your existing assets, such as your home or car, can even be at risk. Professional liability insurance protects what’s most important to you while also offsetting the costs of your legal defense.
If you are a health and wellness professional employed by a larger company, you present a group of set insurance risks. Although it can be tempting to forgo your own policy, ultimately it is the best way to protect your investment in your education and your career. Your employer’s insurance provider is obligated to look out for the company’s bottom line. Occasionally, this can mean their defense team may not have your best interests at heart if the case goes to trial. If you are forced to assume full personal liability, the cost of the judgment may exceed the coverage amounts your employer maintains for employees. In this case, you can be faced with high out of pocket expenses. With an individual professional liability policy, you are the highest priority for your insurance provider.
