Malpractice insurance coverage

Licensure requires malpractice insurance coverage. The CAND obtains great rates through Partners Indemnity Insurance Brokers.

NDs must ensure they meet the insurance coverage requirements set by the regulatory authority in their jurisdictions. Coverage limits range from $2,00000 to $5,000,000 depending on scope of practice and jurisdiction. In unregulated jurisdictions it is recommended that NDs carry a minimum of $2,000,0000 and up to $5,000,000 if they are providing higher risk treatments such as IV therapy, chelation therapy etc. For more information on insurance offerings and applications please contact Kendall Wooding at cand@partnersindemnity.com or 1-877-427-8683.
