By giving health and nutrition advice, your business faces high liability. Dietitian insurance coverage can protect your property, employees, and pay legal expenses stemming from patient injuries.
These policies provide coverage for the most common dietitian risks.
A business owner's policy bundles commercial property and general liability insurance under one plan. A BOP can be a cost-effective commercial insurance policy for nutritionists.
This policy, also called dietitian malpractice insurance, covers legal expenses if a patient files a lawsuit over an error or oversight, such as dietary advice that causes a health problem.
Most states require workers' comp for dietitian practices that have employees. It also protects sole proprietors from work injury costs that health insurance might deny.
This policy helps nutritionists survive data breaches and cyberattacks by paying for recovery expenses and more. It can be added to a BOP or general liability policy for savings.
As a registered dietitian (RD) or nutritionist, you help patients manage and prevent nutrition-related diseases or deficiencies. Running a private practice, however, exposes you to huge risks. From a fire at your office to a patient injury, property and liability insurance can protect your business from escalating legal costs and more. Some policies, such as workers' comp, are also required by law.
