The importance of Professional Liability insurance for dieticians and nutritionists
You advise others in proper nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices to achieve health-related goals. With the increased focus on obesity and other diseases caused by poor diet comes a growing demand for the types of services that dietitians and nutritionists provide.
From corporations sponsoring wellness and prevention programs to long-term care facilities designing patient-specific meal plans or schools serving healthier choices in the lunch line, the breadth of food-related solutions is expanding. All this adds up to greater liabilities for your profession.
With wellness at the heart of your job, it may seem unlikely that you would be sued for the professional guidance you provide. Sadly, in an age where people are quick to sue, you can be.
Lockton Affinity Health’s Professional Liability insurance is tailored exclusively for dieticians and nutritionists. It covers defense costs and judgments or settlements that result from a claim against you, plus pays you for lost wages while defending a claim.

Why dieticians and nutritionists need personal coverage
Whether you’re self-employed or work in a hospital, nursing home, health club or food-related corporation, the best safeguard against a claim or allegation stemming from your professional services is your own nutritionist and dietitian liability insurance policy.
You may have employer-provided coverage, but in many cases, it doesn’t provide an adequate amount of protection for you personally if you are faced with defending yourself against a claim. A single claim can cost thousands of dollars, interrupt your course of work and tarnish your reputation—even if you’re innocent.
This Professional Liability coverage is the smart choice for dieticians and nutritionists.
