No, MMIP offers an individual massage therapist insurance program, and each licensed practitioner is responsible for his or her own policy.
This is a personal liability insurance policy so it must be in the practitioner’s name but, as a sole proprietor, your business name is also covered. If you have a corporation or partnership, your business may be added as an additional insured.
Your MMIP policy does not cover invasive practices, such as acupuncture, colonic educators or herbal counseling. This policy also does not cover the use of T-bars, charges of sexual harassment or the transmission of HIV or a STD.
To place a claim, call MMIP at 1-800-222-1110 to report the event as soon as possible. We will immediately mail you a claim form.
As long as your policy was in effect at the time of the incident, you are covered under our policy. MMIP offers occurrence form coverage, meaning you are still covered for claims filed after your policy expires, as long as the incident in question occurred during your policy term. Let’s say your policy with MMIP expires on Jan. 31, for example, and you do not renew because you’re no longer in practice. You will still be covered for any claim filed after Jan. 31, as long as the incident happened when you were insured (on or before Jan. 31).
Your confirmation of coverage is your proof that you have liability coverage with MMIP. If you misplace it, just call us and we will mail you a copy, free of charge. We urge our clients to keep this document in a secure place with their other important documents.
As you are instantly enrolled into the MMIP system, and your certificate is emailed to you immediately, there will be no refunds from our policy.
