Why do psychiatrists need insurance?

Whether your focus is psychotherapy or substance abuse treatment, psychiatrists face a variety of risks. An injury, theft, or a data breach could happen at any clinic. Business insurance protects your small practice from the financial impact of accidents and lawsuits. Some policies, such as workers' compensation, may be required by law.
