Tailored insurance for Acupuncturists
Acupuncturists insurance includes both Professional Indemnity and Public Liability in one policy.
Why do Acupuncturists need Professional Indemnity insurance?
As an Acupuncturist, you’re practising a 3,000-year-old healing technique of traditional Chinese medicine. You work to improve the body’s functions and promote a natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites through the insertions of fine, sterile needles into the skin. Acupuncture can work wonders, but a client could make a claim that you made a pre-existing condition worse and seek to hold you accountable.
Acupuncturist Indemnity insurance is designed to protect you if something goes wrong while you’re treating a patient, it includes cover against a wide range of risks like claims of professional negligence.2
As an Acupuncturist, you need to be covered by a level of Professional Indemnity insurance that meets the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency standard.3
Why do Acupuncturists need Public Liability insurance?
One of your clients or a member of the public could take a spill and hurt themselves or damage their property on your premises. This could lead to them making a claim against your business, and you could be held liable.
Acupuncturist Liability insurance provides cover for legal liabilities if a member of the public makes a claim that they were injured, or damage was caused to their property because of your business dealings or on your premises.2
