Health coaching is approved by the World Health Organization, the UK National Health Service, the Centers for Disease Control, and the United States Preventative Services Task Force; however, it is still a relatively new field with separate federal, state and local regulations.
Thus, it is important to research how each tier of these laws impacts your coaching practice.
Do health coaches need insurance?
The answer is yes and here are 2 types of insurance policies to investigate for your health coaching business:
Commercial General Liability: Commercial general liability (CGL) protects your business from legal costs if someone gets injured on your property.
Professional Liability Insurance: Professional liability insurance, also called errors and omissions (E&O), malpractice or professional indemnity insurance, protects you from lawsuits that claim:
- You provided negligent professional services
- You made mistakes or omissions
- You did not honor contractual promises
As a health coach, it is important to protect your company. With the right protection in place and peace of mind, you can continue to help others live their most healthy lives.
