Professional Liability Insurance for
Health and Wellness Coaches
As a health and wellness coach, you’ve likely heard about the importance of professional liability insurance. Even with your extensive expertise in mindset and behavior changes to generate sustainable healthy lifestyles, any dissatisfied client can make a claim of negligence or harmful advice and treatment. Professional liability insurance is critical to protect yourself, your reputation, your finances and your career.
Why Professional Liability Insurance is Essential
Even if you are highly professional and vigilant in your conduct and cultivate positive and healthy client relationships, a claim can happen at any time. A professional liability claim puts a lot at risk, including:
- Money — From start to finish, legal fees may cost thousands, consuming your savings and racking up debt. With professional liability insurance, you can choose a limit that suits your needs to cover these expenses.
- Reputation — As a health and wellness coach, reputation can mean everything. By securing professional liability insurance, you’re showing that you take being a coach seriously and are ready to protect your reputation and career.
- Time — Legal proceedings can take months, if not years, to settle. A professional liability policy will help provide professional support in court, as well as covering defense costs and reimbursement for lost wages.
