Your insurance company should work closely with you to support risk management best practices, such as:

  • Securing appropriate informed consent from all patients;
  • Conducting patient education and screening (e.g., a pre-procedure checklist to help identify patients who may be ill-suited or at risk for a particular service);
  • Documenting employee training and employment files;
  • Maintaining proper credentialing of all physicians, medical personnel and other service providers.

Sound risk management practices such as these are pivotal to an insured’s and insurer's ability to effectively defend a spa or medical spa in a claim. They will also make it more feasible for these businesses to secure the coverage they need for their full spectrum of services now and in the future.
