Virginia insurance for home health aides and agencies

Home health aides provide the highest quality of care to their patients. You know how vital it is that people can be comfortable at home. And while you provide crucial support for other people, who provides you with the same quality support?

BizInsure makes it simple and easy for Home Health Aides in Virginia to locate insurance that will protect their small business. No matter where in the state you’re in — from Charlottesville to Harrisonburg and Richmond to Roanoke, insurance for home health aide agencies is within reach.

Why become a Virginia home health worker?

There are numerous home health aides in every state, even Virginia. This is a great chance to begin a career as a healthcare professional and be a positive influence on the patients of Virginia.

There are just over 55,000 home health aides and personal care aides in Virginia, according to 2021 data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This number is likely to increase in the coming years. Between 2020 and 2030, 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 Virginia earn an average annual salary of $24,680 or an average hourly wage of $11.86. Virginia home health aides may earn more in major cities than in smaller metro areas and rural parts of the state.

What are the reasons Virginia’s home-based health care providers require insurance?

Home health aides provide support to the elderly, chronically ill, and those with disabilities. These patients can live comfortably and safely in their own homes thanks to the services you provide.

However, accidents do happen. You may be sued or face costly legal liabilities. If you are held accountable, you could be required to compensate the victim’s family or friends.

The process of settling lawsuits and claims can be expensive. They can quickly drain your bank account and even end your career. Virginia provides home care insurance to help home health aides, home health agencies, and other care providers protect their financial security.

Did you know?

General Liability insurance protects against unfounded and real claims from third parties.

Virginia Home Healthcare Business Insurance

Home health aides and other healthcare professionals may consider a variety of business insurance to cover them while they perform their duties.

General Liability Insurance

General Liability insurance insurance protects businesses against the risk of customer injury and property damage. The policy will cover legal expenses and the cost of resolving the issue (up to the policy limits).

These protections are available for both claims that have merit and those without merit. General Liability insurance may also be sold as Commercial General Liability coverage (CGL), or “slip-and-fall” coverage.

What is typically covered?

General Liability insurance offers insurance for lawsuits and claims that are caused by:

  • Third-party bodily injury
  • Damage to property owned by a third party


For your General Liability policy to protect you, a claim doesn’t need to be proven. It also covers third-party claims that are not valid. Baseless claims can prove costly to resolve. A General Liability policy gives home health aides and agencies greater security when caring for patients. It also protects the financial assets of their clients.

What is typically not covered?

These kinds of events are generally not covered under your General Liability policy:

  • Personal workplace injuries (workers’ compensation claims)
  • Property damage
  • Intentional damage to a third party’s property
  • Incorrect work


A General Liability policy might not be able to cover certain situations. Complete details about the coverage will be included in the policy documents.

Professional Liability Insurance

Professional Liability insurance protects your business against claims of negligence, misrepresentation or mistake, as well as document or paperwork errors.

It also shields you from third-party claims for professional negligence. You will be covered for legitimate as well as valid claims. Professional Liability insurance may also be sold as Errors & Omissions (E&O) insurance.

What is typically covered?

Professional Liability insurance protects against legal costs, such as settlements or judgments, caused by professional wrongdoing. This may include acts such as:

  • Expert services and advice could be accompanied by errors, mistakes or mistakes
  • Negligence claims
  • Late deadlines or services not provided
  • Breaches of contract

Clients typically bring these kinds of lawsuits against you claiming that their work has led to financial losses. Professional Liability insurance policies offer protection even if there’s no basis for the claim.

What is typically not covered?

Certain events are generally not covered by Professional Liability insurance.

  • Bodily injury of an uninvolved third party
  • Property damage to third parties
  • Workplace injuries or workers’ comp claims


Please refer to your policy documents for more details about what is and is not covered under the Professional Liability insurance.

What is the cost of home health care insurance in Virginia?

Home care insurance costs in Virginia may vary. This is because every home healthcare professional is different, and these differences can affect the cost of insurance.

A few of the factors that are used to calculate insurance premiums could include:

  • What is your education and qualifications? – Do you have the right training to do the job? Are you qualified to work in Virginia as a healthcare professional?
  • The city, town or county that you work within – Insurance for health care providers based within cities such as Richmond, or Virginia Beach will likely be more expensive than insurance for those in less populous areas.
  • History of past claims– This may lead to higher insurance rates in the future.
  • The amount of coverage you need – A higher level of coverage typically means higher premiums.


Comparing quotes from more than one insurer can help to find home health insurance that suits your needs and budget.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What are the risks home health care providers are exposed to in Virginia?

Home health care providers in Virginia provide high-quality care to their patients. There are unique risks associated with working in close proximity to other people in their homes. Luckily, insurance can help you deal with most common risks you may face.

  • General Liability insurance – You accidentally knock over and break a vase in the home of the patient. This is just one example of a claim that General Liability insurance can assist with as a home health aide.
  • Professional Liability insurance – Your expertise and knowledge are crucial to the patients as well as their families. You may be sued for negligence if you commit a mistake in your care, or if you fail to live up the patient’s expectations.
  • Cyber Liability insurance – Some sensitive patient data may be stored by home health care organizations. Cyber Liability insurance can be beneficial if you’re the victim of a data leak or another malicious attack.


BizInsure can help home health aides and agencies locate insurance for businesses to cover the risks that you face every day.

What are the home health care aide license requirements in Virginia? How do I get a home health care license in Virginia?

Virginia does not have licensing requirements for home health aides. However, you must meet additional requirements to be licensed to work in the state.

The following requirements are required if you are interested in working for an Virginia-based home healthcare agency that is Medicare/Medicaid approved:

  • Pass competency evaluation
  • Training for 75 hours
  • Complete 16 additional hours of clinical training


You may receive regular training from the agency during the time you are employed there.

To be able to work in Virginia as a Medicaid-certified Independent Health Aid you must have:

  • Register with the Virginia Department of Jobs and Family Services
  • Get a background check for your state.
  • If you’ve been in the state for less than five years, you should conduct a background check from FBI


You’ll want to safeguard your work and the company you’ve built once you’ve worked hard to be a home health aide. Virginia’s home healthcare business insurance covers you against a variety of dangers you could face while doing your job. You’ll be able to work with more ease knowing that your financial security is secured from expensive lawsuits and claims.

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.
