Why do aesthetic nurses need business insurance?

Adverse reactions or complications from an aesthetic procedure could lead to a lawsuit. Business insurance helps cover legal fees and out-of-court settlements. It can also pay for other common risks, such as data breaches, fires, theft, and property damage.

FAQs about cosmetic nurse business insurance

Is malpractice insurance required for aesthetic nurses?

Medical malpractice insurance, also called a professional liability policy, protects nurses from legal defense costs and provides peace of mind in the event of a lawsuit related to your work performance. There are several reasons you may need to buy this coverage:

  • Your employer may require it. The med spa or other healthcare facility where you work may require you to carry malpractice insurance coverage, even if it's not required by state law.
  • Your employer's coverage may be limited. Your employer might provide coverage that is effective only in certain situations or for smaller claims. Or, you may have insurance through a nursing association for your work at a hospital, but it will not provide coverage for your aesthetic work.
  • Independent contractors are not covered. If you work as an independent contractor, your employer's policy will not provide coverage and you will need to secure your own malpractice insurance policy.

Fortunately, it's possible to find affordable aesthetic nurse malpractice insurance. Insureon's easy online application lets you compare quotes to find the best possible rate. You can customize your coverage options to match your specific needs and your budget.

What does malpractice insurance for aesthetic nurses cover?

Aesthetic nurse malpractice insurance can cover a wide range of claims related to patient care, including:

  • Telemedicine / telehealth coverage
  • HIPAA defense coverage
  • License protection
  • Sexual misconduct defense
  • Coverage for laser treatments, dermal fillers, and other cosmetic procedures in addition to standard coverage for nurses

Keep in mind that malpractice insurance is usually sold as a claims-made policy instead of an occurrence-based policy. That means you'll need to maintain continuous coverage, as your policy must be active in order for you to file a claim.

What other insurance coverage do cosmetic nurses need?

In addition to the policies mentioned above, product liability insurance provides crucial coverage for aesthetic nurses.

Product liability insurance protects against legal costs related to the products that you use or sell, from facial injectables to fillers. For example, it would help cover a lawsuit resulting from an allergic reaction to Botox. This coverage is often included in your general liability insurance.

Consult a licensed insurance agent to find out about any exclusions or to add other types of coverage to your policies.
