What is professional liability insurance for counselors?

Professional liability insurance (or malpractice insurance) serves as a safeguard from claims or lawsuits. If a client, their spouse or parent/guardian files a complaint or lawsuit, malpractice insurance for counselors provides unlimited defense coverage and $35,000 of state licensing board defense coverage to protect your career and assets.

Why take out your own individual malpractice insurance as a counselor?

As a counselor, you know that some of the biggest breakthroughs occur once a client has settled into therapy and developed a level of trust with you. This trust comes, in part, from the intimate and private setting of the therapy itself. Unfortunately, this atmosphere also opens up counselors to claims of negligence and misconduct.

“Thanks, but I’m covered through my employer”

Sometimes, your employer’s policy is robust enough to cover your needs, but sometimes it may not be enough. Your employer’s policy is set up to cover the employer for any liability it may face from your work, but this doesn’t guarantee that the policy adequately covers you. Because employer provided insurance is shared among their employers and primarily covers the business entity and owner, it’s prudent for the individual counselor to maintain their own policy that puts them first.

Whether you operate a one-person LLC or large corporation, it’s important to adequately cover your business entity with corporate coverage. If you own a business entity, corporation, or group practice click here to apply for the appropriate coverage. This will cover both your business entity AND you as an individual (owner).
