Now that you are officially a registered dietitian (RD) and ready to start counseling people, it’s important to get dietitian liability insurance to cover yourself and your private practice. You may be asking yourself “what is dietitian liability insurance?” At ProSight, liability insurance for dietitians can include general liability insurance and professional liability insurance, as well as abusive misconduct insurance, which can protect you and your practice from claims made against you regarding physical and/or verbal abuse.

As a dietitian, you are qualified to assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutritional problems at an individual level. From disbursing dietary advice to planning meals, your clients depend on your expertise to establish good eating habits to achieve their health goals. However, having such a direct influence on their well-being, leaves you and your business exposed to potential claims.

As with any health profession, registered dietitians are exposed to many risks while running their own practice. There are error and omission (professional liability) lawsuits to consider as well as third-party claims of property damage, bodily injury and associated medical costs that could cripple your practice. Even when providing your professional advice, your clients could sue you simply because they’re not happy with your services.

The good news, professional liability insurance for dietitians can help protect RDs and their assets from an eligible claim. In handling client claims, dietitian liability insurance will provide a legal defense and pay the amount the court awards the client up to the limits of liability insurance policy.
