Behavioral Therapist Malpractice Insurance

The essentials and benefits of having malpractice insurance coverage for behavioral therapists.

What is Behavioral Therapist Malpractice Insurance?

Malpractice insurance for behavioral therapists ensures that providers have the right coverage in the event of a malpractice lawsuit or negligence claim. Personal assets remain at risk if therapists performing behavioral therapy or cognitive therapy choose to rely solely on a policy provided by employers.

What Risks Do I Face as A Behavioral Therapist That Warrants Malpractice Insurance?

Behavioral therapists seek to identify and help change potentially self-destructive or unhealthy behaviors in their patients. Because behavioral therapists specialize in helping their clients overcome behavioral issues impacting daily life, having behavioral therapist liability insurance is necessary as it protects medical professionals from possible claims. Behavioral therapists’ patients are considered high risk which increases the chances of being named in a lawsuit. Having individual professional malpractice insurance for behavioral therapists will give therapy professionals peace of mind, regardless of workplace.
