What Does Chiropractic Business Insurance Cost? 

Chiropractic Business Insurance: What Insurance Do You Need and How Much Does it Cost? 

Chiropractic Business Insurance Cost 473x630 - What Does Chiropractic Business Insurance Cost?  Orlando FLUnderstanding what insurance your chiropractor business needs can be difficult. First, chiropractors face the serious risks common to all medical practitioners: the risk that someone will sue you because they are unhappy with the treatment you provided (even if you did not make a mistake). Second, because many chiropractors practice independently, you also face the more traditional risks common to every small business. So it is critical that you protect your Florida chiropractor business with the most comprehensive insurance policy possible. 

At the same time, however, we understand that you don’t want an insurance policy that breaks the bank; after all, most chiropractor practices operate on very slim margins as it is, and an expensive insurance policy can undermine your bottom line. Most insurance experts will agree that the best way to find a policy that will offer you the financial protection you require at a price you can afford is to work with an independent insurance agent. An independent agent can help you assess your specific risk factors, then shop around to find the right policy at the best possible price! 

Chiropractor business insurance coverages 

The first step is understanding what coverages your chiropractor business will require, as well as the specific risk factors that will impact the cost of your policy. Standard business policies will include: 

  • General LiabilityThis general commercial coverage protects you in case a patient is injured or their property damaged while they are in your business (not related to the services you offer). 
  • Commercial PropertyAlso common for every small business, property insurance protects the premise out of which you operate as well as medical and computer equipment, tools and supplies, and hard-copy records from damage stemming from theft, damage, vandalism, and/or loss. For chiropractors operating in Florida, flood insurance is also highly recommended.  
  • Business Interruption InsuranceCovers income lost if you are not able to treat your patients due to covered property damage or other interruption 

When you obtain these policies through an independent insurance agency, they can often be packaged together in a bundle (a Business Owner’s Policy, or BOPat a lower cost 

Other insurance coverages

Other coverages that may be required for some chiropractors, although not all depending on the type of practice you operate, include:  

  • Workers Compensation Insurance: required if you employ four or more employees other than yourself in your practice (full or part time). 
  • Product Liability Insurance: recommended if you sell supplements, or relabel and sell products such as equipment or tools, under your own business name. 
  • Commercial Auto Insurance: required if you own and/or operate any type of vehicle used to operate your chiropractor practice (such as home visits).  

Most importantly, perhaps, everyone in the medical industry including chiropractors, should carry Professional Liability Insurance, also called Medical Malpractice Insurance. Although not specifically required by law in Florida, this coverage offers financial protection should a patient file a lawsuit against you stemming from your treatment, medical adviceor other services renderedMalpractice insurance can even cover expensive legal costs even in the case that the lawsuit is thrown out. However, it is important to understand the limits on treatment options contained within your malpractice insurance; for examplemany policies exclude acupuncture and/or “off-label” procedures not approved by the FDA.
