What is Caregiver Insurance?

For caregivers and personal care providers, there are two primary types of insurance protection available: Professional Liability insurance and General Liability insurance.

These two coverages protect you from different types of claims that you may face in your occupation. The two go hand in hand, which is why you should consider having both types of insurance to fully protect yourself and your clients.

Did you know?

The job outlook for caregivers, personal care providers and home health aides is positive. U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics project that these occupations will grow by 34% between 2019 and 2029, much faster than the 4% average for all occupations!

Insurance for Caregivers and Personal Care Providers

Caregivers and personal care providers give essential care to thousands of Americans. By monitoring medical conditions and assisting with daily living activities, caregivers help those with disabilities or chronic illnesses and the elderly enjoy a better quality of life.

You no doubt work with great care and purpose in your role as caregiver. But no matter how careful you are, accidents happen. For caregivers this may be especially true, as you are often working with individuals who are fragile or impaired.

A simple mistake could lead to an expensive lawsuit. If that happens, who will take care of you?

Caregiver insurance can help bring you greater peace of mind as you care for others, by providing protections to help shield you against common liability claims you may face while on the job.

Professional Liability Insurance for Caregivers

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.

For caregivers, this includes coverage for:

  • Errors
  • Omissions
  • Mistakes
  • Negligence
  • Breach of contract

As well as other types of liability claims that you could face, such as undelivered services or missed deadlines.

You could be found liable for their injuries because the bed was brought into the home and set up on your professional recommendation.

Professional Liability insurance will pay the legal expense of a related liability claim, including settlements and judgements, so you are not left to pay them from your own accounts.

General Liability Insurance for Caregivers

A General Liability policy 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.

Caregivers often find this type of coverage useful as they are frequently:

  • Interacting with patients and other third parties (such as family members, doctors, or anyone else who may visit a patient’s home or are a part of their daily care)
  • Visiting patients in their homes
  • Transporting patients to and from other locations (such as a doctor or specialists office, the pharmacy, or on errands)
  • Providing physical assistance to their patients

For example, you are helping a patient get out of the shower when they slip and fall. You could be found liable for any injuries they sustain as they were under your care at the time.

General Liability insurance covers legal fees and compensation for relevant claims, safeguarding your business and personal finances.

Miscellaneous Medical Liability Package for Caregivers

BizInsure offers a Miscellaneous Medical Liability insurance package for caregivers. The package includes Professional Liability and General Liability insurance, plus Cyber Liability insurance. It provides good coverage to help protect caregivers against the most common types of claims they face, at a great price.


Why should caregivers consider business insurance?

Caregivers may need certain types of coverage to help protect them against expensive lawsuits and damage to their professional reputation.

Due to the nature of their work, caregivers face a variety of on-the-job risks. You provide day-to-day care to vulnerable people, who rely on your knowledge and training to help them live safely in their own homes.

While you may have the best of intentions, the advice or care you provide could cause further injury or illness to those you are looking after. A client or their family could decide to sue, bringing a potentially damaging lawsuit against you.

Professional Liability insurance and General Liability insurance can help protect you by covering legal expenses and any compensation you are required to pay to a client. Otherwise, these costs would be paid out of your own savings, which could be financially devastating.


Are caregivers required to have business insurance?

The types of insurance coverage you are required to have as a caregiver varies from state to state. Some states may require in-home caregivers and personal care providers to have a Professional Liability or General Liability (or both) in order to become licensed and work in the state.

Always check with your state government or professional association about the insurance requirements in your area. In addition to requiring certain forms of coverage, there may also be minimum insurance limits that you must also meet.

Even if you are not required to have business insurance as a caregiver, your patients may still expect you to have it. Patients and their families might feel more comfortable hiring a caregiver who is insured, and they may include this requirement in a business contract or agreement. This can provide them with peace of mind that if something does go wrong, any compensation they are awarded through a lawsuit will be paid.


How much does insurance for caregivers cost?

The cost of Professional Liability insurance and General Liability insurance varies from caregiver to caregiver. Every small business is unique, so what you pay for a policy may differ from other caregivers, personal care providers or healthcare professionals.

Insurance premiums for caregivers are based on several factors, which may include:

  • The size of your business
  • Where your business is located
  • The amount of coverage you need or want
  • Your yearly business income

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.
