Professional Liability Insurance for Members of The Ordre des Chiropraticiens du Québec
Members of the Ordre des chiropraticiens du Québec must comply with the professional liability insurance regulation as stipulated in the Chiropractic Act, chapter C-16.
In summary, the law stipulates that chiropractors must have an insurance contract establishing a guarantee against errors or negligence committed in practising the profession. The contract must cover the chiropractor as well as his or her employees and assistants.
In the case of a chiropractic company, the contract can be entered into in the name of the company, but the guarantee must extend to each of the partners or employees personally, whether they are professionals or not.
The amount of coverage must be at least $1,000,000 per claim and $3,000,000 for all claims in a year of coverage.
Insurance products have been created specifically for chiropractors, ensuring them optimal coverage at competitive rates. Contact a professional liability insurance expert from J. Gérard Fortin to ensure you make an informed choice.
