Oregon Insurance Agency and Home Health Aide

Home health aides provide the best care possible for their patients. It doesn’t matter if you are part of a team or working on your own, you are aware of how crucial it is for patients to live in their own home. Helping others is an essential part of your job, but who is supporting you?

BizInsure makes finding small business insurance to protect Home Health Aides in Oregon easy. Insurance is available for home-based health care organizations anyplace in Oregon where you work.

Why become a home health aide in Oregon?

Oregon is the home of many Home Health Aide positions. This could be an excellent opportunity to enter the healthcare field and improve the lives of patients in Oregon.

There are more than 35,500 home health aides and personal care aides in Oregon, according to 2021 data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This number is likely to increase in the coming years. Between 2021 and 2031, the number of home health aides across the entire country is expected to grow by 25%. This is much faster than the average expected growth rate for all occupations, which is just 8%.

Home health aides and personal care aides in Oregon earn an average annual salary of $32,190 or an average hourly wage of $15.48. Oregon home health aides may earn more in major cities than in smaller metro areas and rural parts of the state. For example, the average annual salaries for home health and personal care aides in Grants Pass and Medford are $34,380 and $31,030, respectively.

Why do home health service providers need insurance?

Home health aides provide assistance for those who are elderly, chronically ill, or are living with disabilities. Patients are able to live in safety and comfort at home due to the services that you provide. However, this could expose you to expensive liability claims or lawsuits.

Accidents can happen and you might have to pay compensation to the victim or their family. The cost of litigation and claims is very high. This could cause financial problems and could even mean ending your career. Home care insurance in Oregon helps home health aides and home health agencies protect their finances.

Did you Know?

General Liability insurance provides coverage for both actual and unfounded claims made by third parties.

Oregon Home Healthcare Business Insurance

Home health aides and other healthcare professionals often consider many kinds of insurance to safeguard their businesses.

General Liability Insurance

General Liability insurance protects businesses against the risk of third-party injury and property damage. The policy will pay for legal costs as well as the costs of fixing the situation within the policy limits.

The protections are available for meritorious claims and those without merit. General Liability insurance may also be called Commercial General Liability, CGL or “slip & fall” coverage.

What is typically covered?

General Liability insurance covers for claims and lawsuits caused by:

  • Injuries to third parties
  • Damage to property owned by third parties


A General Liability policy will cover third party claims with no merit. It is expensive to settle claims that are not legitimate. Home health agencies and aides can feel more secure knowing their financial security is covered by a General Liability policy.

What isn’t included?

These kinds of events are not covered under your General Liability Policy

  • Personal injuries at work and claims for workers’ compensation
  • Property damage
  • Intentional damage to a third party’s property
  • Incorrect work or mistakes


Your General Liability policy may not be able to cover certain situations. You can find all coverage details in the policy documents.

Professional Liability Insurance

Professional Liability insurance can protect professional service providers from potentially devastating financial damages resulting from alleged negligence or error in the delivery of your services. Both meritless and true claims will be protected by your policy.

What is typically covered?

Professional Liability insurance pays for legal costs that could result from:

  • Mistakes, errors or omissions in your advice or recommendations
  • Allegations of negligence
  • Undelivered services or missed deadlines
  • Breaches of contract


Clients typically bring these kinds of lawsuits against you, claiming that your work has resulted in a financial loss for them. Professional Liability policies provide coverage even if there is no evidence to support the claim.

What is not covered?

These events are not covered by Professional Liability Insurance:

  • Bodily injury to third parties
  • Property belonging to a third party is damaged
  • Personal or workers’ compensation injury at work


Please refer to your policy formulation for more details about what is and isn’t covered by your Professional Liability insurance.

Miscellaneous Medical Insurance for Home Care Providers

Home health aides and home care organizations typically require more than one kind of insurance to cover different risks to their businesses. A Miscellaneous Medical Liability package includes a variety of insurances home care businesses often consider.

This includes General Liability and Professional Liability insurance. Cyber Liability is also included to safeguard your company from data breaches, malware attacks and other risks.

Who is eligible for home health care insurance

There are many healthcare professionals who may require home care insurance in Oregon:

  • Home Healthcare Aides – Subcontractors, individual contractors, and sole proprietors might require insurance to safeguard themselves and their patients.
  • Home Health Services – Protect your small company and your employees by purchasing insurance for home health agencies.
  • Other Healthcare Professionals – Nurses, physical therapists, carers and other health professionals might also benefit from having business insurance.

How much does Oregon home health insurance cost?

There are many factors that affect the price of Oregon home health insurance. This is because each home healthcare aide and agency is unique, and these differences will impact the premiums you pay for insurance.

Some of the factors used to calculate business insurance premiums may include:

  • Do you have the right qualifications and educational background? – Are you adequately trained for the job? Do you have the right license to work as an Oregon health care provider?
  • Where you work – Care providers who are based near cities, like Portland and Salem, are likely to be paid more than those who reside in smaller towns or counties.
  • Your claims history – A collection of previous claims may result in more expensive rates in the near future.
  • The level of coverage you need – Higher premiums are usually connected with greater coverage. Clients might need a minimum amount of coverage.

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.
