Insurance for health and wellness business
Health and wellness businesses help us all to improve our well-being in one way or another. From yoga studios to psychology clinics to massage therapy, it’s likely that most Canadians have utilized a service that has helped them improve their physical or mental health.
While many of these businesses are gentle by nature, unfortunately, it doesn’t make them risk-free. In this industry, many claims stem from allegations of negligence or misconduct. Clients rely on the professional advice that is provided – should you make an error, you could be held liable, and this can be a costly mistake to make.
Health and wellness insurance is crucial to keep your business safe from expensive professional liability claims. It can also cover you for other incidents – learn more about getting insurance for individual practitioners and businesses.
What is health and wellness business insurance?
Health and wellness insurance protects wellness professionals from alleged negligence or malpractice lawsuits. Insurance also provides coverage for common risks such as a general liability claim or property damage to your location.
What does it cover?
Health and wellness insurance covers expenses when something unexpected or accidental happens, such as a third-party injury on your premises or damage to your business assets. Here are the scopes that donate to your policy:
- Commercial General Liability (2autoinsurance) Insurance:
2autoinsurance provides financial coverage against common liability risks, such as slip-and-fall accidents. You could be liable for a potential injury if a client falls over. 2autoinsurance could cover medical costs.
- Professional Liability Insurance:
This policy is significant for any wellness professional that offers professional advice that’s relied on by a client. Also known as malpractice insurance, it protects against negligence claims, errors, omissions, and failure to deliver a service as promised. Say you’re a dietitian helping a client lose weight after months, and your insurance may cover the legal costs and settlement fees.
- Commercial Property Insurance:
This policy covers your location (whether you rent or own) and your business-related equipment against risks such as fire, theft, and destruction. Presume you rent a headquarters for your chiropractic business, and your infirmary is busted overnight. This policy could provide financial protection to replace or repair damaged or stolen property during the break-in.
- Cyber Liability Insurance:
This policy covers the costs of technological losses, such as hacking your client’s data. This is significant coverage if you host virtual wellness services or store clients’ private health information. Communicate client financial data are unexpectedly missing from your computer due to a cyber violation; this policy could cover the costs of reporting clients and recognition monitoring.
How much does it cost?
The cost depends on many factors, however, for a small- to medium-sized, low-risk health and wellness business, you can anticipate spending $450 annually on a basic CGL policy with a $2M limit.
