As an allied health professional, you may think that you don’t need insurance to protect you, but the truth is today’s world requires diligence in protecting yourself and your future. Coverage may also be legally required in your area.
Things you Never Think Will Happen
Many people who enter the allied health field simply want to help others. They enjoy working with people and improving their lives. Often, the thought of someone bringing a lawsuit against them is the furthest thing from their mind. Here are some reasons you could suddenly find yourself needing protection.
- Allegations of physical or sexual abuse
- Patient falls while under care
- Unintentional HIPPA violations
- Adverse reactions to a treatment or procedure
Now that you see the need for insurance protection, how do you pick the right coverage for your allied health organization?

Make sure the policy you’re looking at provides enough coverage for your needs. Review deductibles, coverage limits and specialty coverages you may need for things like traveling to a patients home, or property protection.
Working in the medical field today brings many challenges. Dealing with the consequences of a lacking allied health insurance policy shouldn’t be one of them. Give yourself peace of mind by having the protection a great policy provides.
