These insurance policies cover the most common risks faced by nutritionists.
A general liability insurance policy covers basic third-party risks, such as a patient who trips and suffers an injury during an obesity consultation. It's often required for commercial leases.
A BOP bundles commercial property insurance and general liability coverage under one plan. It's often the most cost-effective commercial insurance policy for a nutrition professional.
Most states require workers' comp for nutrition practices that have employees. It also protects sole proprietors from work injury costs that health insurance might deny.
