Why do audiologists need insurance?

If an audiologist overlooks a serious underlying condition and prescribes a hearing aid, the result could be a lawsuit. Business insurance helps pay for legal defense costs if a patient accuses you of negligence. It also covers fires, data breaches, and accidents that harm a patient or damage their property.
