FAQ's on Workers' Comp for Healthcare Workers

How quickly can I get my certificate of insurance?

We usually issue certificates 24 hours after the policy is bound.
Let us know if you need it quicker and we will rush it.

We are a physical & occupational therapy clinic and our therapists are independent contractors that do not have their own workers' comp coverage. Do I need to include them in our policy?

It is strongly recommended to include such employees in your workers' compensation policy.

Workers' compensation is regulated at the state level, so rules and penalties vary by state.

For example, New Jersey requires coverage for any business with one employee. Florida, on the other hand, requires it for general businesses with four or more employees and construction companies with even one employee.

If you’re an employer, you should research the specific laws in your state to ensure you’re complying with workers' comp requirements.
