Huntersure: Professional Liability Insurance for the Allied Healthcare Sector

The Allied Healthcare industry is comprised of many different types of facilities and professionals in hundreds of positions critical to this segment. Facilities can range from adult day care centers to medical labs, physical, occupational & speech therapy and home health agencies to social services and residential facilities such as assisted living, independent living home, and hospice care to med spas and much more. Those who work within Allied Healthcare include nurses, technicians, therapists, social workers, consultants, educators, and assistants – all who require special training, degrees, or certifications to practice in the healthcare field.
