Frequently Asked Questions

Why do Ambulatory Services need insurance?

Businesses that work in this industry aim to provide services such as health screening, physical fitness evaluation, hearing testing, pacemaker monitoring, and smoking cessation programs. This industry also includes businesses such as eye banks, placenta banks, blood donor stations, and sperm banks.

Insurance protects your business and even personal assets when faced with a lawsuit, medical responsibility, and other incidents that would cost you large amounts quickly. Even if you think your business has enough cash to cover these issues, there is always a potential incident that would require even more. Insurance provides much higher coverage where all you pay is the monthly fee to get insured.

What risks do Ambulatory Services face?

Your ambulatory service business faces a unique set of risks. Below are some examples:

  • Instead of getting cured your patient claims that the condition got a lot worse after the treatment. The patient then files a claim against your business.
  • Your ambulance is about to send a patient in the hospital when it got involved in an accident. Upon investigation, it is proven that your business is at fault. You are then responsible for property damage, personal injury, medical expenses that have happened during the accident.
  • A patient claims that your treatment did not do anything that could alleviate the situation he is having. He, then concludes that the services you provided are subpar; thus, files a claim against your professional service.

How much does Ambulatory Health Care Service insurance cost?

Since every business is unique, there is no fixed cost of insurance policies for your business. Without taking all the criteria to define your business insurance into account, below are the average annual costs of insurance policies:

  • General Liability insurance costs $500 in annual premiums.
  • Workers' Compensation costs $1200 in annual premiums.
  • Commercial Auto insurance costs $600 in annual premiums.
