Allied health professionals make up 60% of the total health workforce. These professionals work to deliver high-quality patient care services for the identification, prevention, and treatment of disabilities, disorders and diseases.
There are hundreds of allied health professions and over six million people in allied health jobs, including clinical laboratory personnel, physical therapy, occupational therapy, dietetic services, medical record personnel, radiologic services, speech-language pathology and audiology, and respiratory therapy. Allied health does not include physicians, nurses, dentists, or podiatrists.
Allied health professionals work to make the health care system function by providing a range of diagnostic, technical, therapeutic, and direct patient care and support services. They are critical to the other health professionals they work with and the patients they serve.
Our comprehensive insurance program for allied health care service providers is offered exclusively through our agents and includes coverage for professional liability, general liability, employee benefits liability, sexual misconduct, commercial property, business auto, workers compensation, as well as other key coverage.
