Why do home health professionals in Texas require insurance?

Home health aides assist people who are elderly, have disabilities, or are chronically sick. Your services help patients live comfortably and safely at home. However, this unique work setup could result in costly lawsuits and liability claims.

Accidents do happen. It is possible that you could be ordered to pay for the medical bills of a patient if you are found liable. The cost of litigation and claims can be very high. The lawsuits that result from medical claims can take your money and even endanger your job. Texas home care insurance helps caregivers as well as home health aides to protect their finances.

Did you Know?

General Liability insurance provides protection against unfounded claims as well as actual ones.

Texas Home Healthcare Business Insurance

Home health care professionals frequently look into various kinds of insurance for businesses to protect themselves as they work.

General Liability Insurance

General Liability insurance can protect you against any claim by an outside party regarding injury or damage to their property. In these instances, your policy will cover your legal expenses as well as your cost to replace or remedy the situation up to the limits of liability.

This protection is available for both claims with merit as well as ones that are not meritorious. General Liability insurance can be referred to as Commercial General Liability (CGL), “slip and fall” coverage.

What is usually covered?

General Liability insurance provides coverage for lawsuits and claims arising from:

  • Bodily injury to a third person
  • Property damage to a third party’s belongings

Your General Liability policy also protects you if a claim is made without merit. Baseless claims can be expensive to settle. Aides and home health agencies are more confident knowing that their financial security is covered by a General Liability policy.

What isn’t usually covered?

The following situations are not covered by your General Liability policy:

  • Personal injuries at work and workers’ comp claims
  • Damage to your own property
  • Damage caused intentionally to someone’s property
  • Errors or omissions in your work

You may not be protected for specific events. Complete details about coverage will be provided in the policy documents.

Professional Liability Insurance

A Professional Liability insurance policy (also known as Errors and Omissions or E&O insurance) is an essential policy that protects you and your company in case of a lawsuit due to alleged professional wrongdoing. It also covers you against third-party claims arising from professional negligence.

The policy covers both legitimate and meritless claims. Professional Liability insurance can also be offered as Errors and Omissions (E&O) insurance.

What is typically covered?

Professional Liability insurance covers legal costs, such as settlements or judgments, caused by:

  • Errors or mistakes in your professional advice or services
  • Allegations of negligence
  • Services not delivered or due dates missed
  • Contract breaches

Clients often bring these types of claims against you, claiming that your work has resulted in a financial loss for them. Professional Liability insurance policies offer coverage even if there is no evidence to support the claim.

What’s not usually included?

These incidents are not covered under Professional Liability Insurance:

  • Injury to the third-party
  • The property belonging to a third party may be damaged
  • Workplace injuries or claims for workers’ compensation

For more information on Professional Liability coverage, please look up the policy’s wording.

I have been shopping for business liability insurance for several months. I am happy to share that BizInsure ranked #1! The representatives were polite, patient, and empathetic. They accomplished what most companies struggle with achieving: they did what they said they were going to do, they were on time, and they had empathy. They delivered a policy for 25% less than the closest competetor, and even included $50k of cyber security at no additional cost! I only write reviews when I receive exceptional experiences- highly revommended; keep up the great service BizInsure!P.S. I own a professional referral service in Hawai'i and I am going to see if BizInsure offers an affiliate program.Aloha!

I had numerous conversations with several business insurance agents over a month's time. I also had several conversations confirming the policy inclusion/exclusions and asked many questions. My BizInsure agent was professional, knowledgeable and most important—detail oriented. Even after having an initial conversation a month earlier he knew and *remembered* all my personal/professional insurance needs. When I asked for additional information on the third call he was able to provide me with details very quickly. He was also VERY patient. That is a big plus in my opinion. It illustrated a high level of respect for my needs. I also found when I called back and asked to talk with the initial agent, the person who answered the call was able to get in contact quickly and my agent responded and returned the call within 5-10 minutes. The transaction was smooth, and I think it's a good sign should I ever need to make a claim. I highly recommend BizInsure.

The customer service provided by Jose was outstanding. He explained everything in a very clear/logical way and answered all of my questions. After providing all the information to obtain general liability insurance, Jose sent me the declaration page of the insurance for review. All of the information matched what I provided over the phone and there were no typos. The next day I called back to purchase the insurance which was easy and fast. Overall, my experience with BizInsure including the customer service by Jose exceeded my expectations.
