Professional Liability Insurance for Acupuncturists
through Healthcare Providers Service Organization (HPSO)

Acupuncturists face a unique set of legal risks. Along with providing some unique treatment modalities, acupuncturists may also be serving as the primary healthcare provider for their patients. The failure to recognize, diagnose or refer a more serious underlying condition that leads to patient harm can leave an acupuncturist vulnerable to legal complaints.

Of course, you don't have to do anything wrong at all to be sued. Anytime a patient is dissatisfied with the outcome of their treatment, they may take action, by filing a professional complaint against you, or by filing a lawsuit. And a lawsuit can be an expensive nuisance - or a personal and financial catastrophe.

To protect themselves from the legal risks, many acupuncturists are seeking to protect their finances and their livelihood with their own individual professional liability insurance.

Professional liability insurance isn't only about lawyers, or courts, or damages.

You strive to practice to the best of your ability. But mistakes can happen. If you or someone on your healthcare team accidentally injures a patient, you may be ethically or legally obligated to make things right. If the injury is minor - a cut or scratch - you might treat it yourself. But what if the injury is severe, requiring surgery or therapy - or results in a patient becoming permanently disabled? You carry professional liability insurance so that, in the event of an injury, a patient may be remunerated for the medical expenses - even if you do not have the financial or other resources to do so.

Clearly you need your own individual malpractice protection. And now you can apply for the professional liability insurance more healthcare professionals rely on than any other: the top-quality protection available through Healthcare Providers Service Organization.
