Why do dietitians need insurance?

As a registered dietitian (RD), you help patients manage and prevent nutrition-related diseases and deficiencies. Running a private practice, however, exposes you to huge risks. Insurance protects your business against escalating legal costs from injuries and common accidents. Some policies, such as workers' comp, are required by law.
