Colon Hydrotherapy Professional Liability Insurance
In the last three years, as we have continued to see the growth of the Medical Spa's business, The Doctors’ Insurance Agency is evolving with this new market. The Medical Spa Professional Liability Policies can be written to provide the important ‘slip and fall’ general liability insurance as well.
One common insurance problem, for which The Doctors’ Insurance Agency has a solution is:
The Dermatologist providing Aesthetic Services, or the Family Practitioner who adds these injections, laser, peels to their already busy, thriving medical practice. Plastic Surgeons, Internists, Physiatrists, Chiropractors, Emergency Medical Doctors, the physicians who are moving into this business come from almost every specialty. We provide insurance for their conventional medical practice and ‘carve out’ the medical spa so that they have the important coverage to respond to the laser burn, chemical peel reactions, injectable needle claims.
The Doctors’ Insurance Agency will work to define the risk which is covered by the Medical Malpractice policy and that separate policy to cover just the spa services.
One area within the medical spa which has taken off, along with the emphasis on the holistic care: integrative medical model is: Registered Nurses or Colon Hydro therapists are now providing cleansing therapy!
Colon Hydrotherapy Professional Liability Insurance will cover the claims which arise during the procedure, or as a result of the procedure.
Colon hydrotherapy, is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs. The service does introduce filtered and temperature regulated water into the colon, of course, there is the chance of a reaction to this introduction. The waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. This process is repeated a few times during a session. The purpose of the therapy is to detoxify the body. In today’s environment, this work is helping people to complete the holistic care they wish to receive.
As we know, it is almost impossible to lead an uncontaminated life. Toxins and pollutants are all around us. For example; second hand smoke and car fumes, pesticides used on the foods we eat, toxins in our cleaning products and the antibiotics that cured our last sickness – all of these invisible invaders interrupt the natural processes of our body. EVERYONE benefits from colon cleansing and detoxification through colonic irrigation treatments.
The Doctors Insurance Agency is now providing Professional Liability Insurance for Colon Hydrotherapy. Which covers the claims which arise during the procedure, or as a result of the procedure.
Why is colon hydrotherapy such a valuable treatment modality and how can we insure colon hydro therapists?
Colon Hydrotherapy is a fast growing procedure, used by many people for various reasons; among them : to evaluate the colon in preparing the large bowel for a colonoscopy (pre-colonoscopy). The procedure is being used in clinics and hospitals throughout the world today.
There are two types of systems: Class I and Class II, Our program is designed to provide liability insurance for Certified, Trained Colon Hydrotherapists using either system.
As a testimony to the effectiveness of the procedure:
Colon hydrotherapy was carried out on 690 patients who were scheduled for colonoscopy.The degree of cleaning achieved was determined and documented after colonoscopy. The results of the colon hydrotherapy procedure carried out to prepare the large bowel for colonoscopy was successful in 98 % of the cases. Reference ( Hebei Medical Journal Dec. 2004, Vol 25, No 12 )
The Colon hydrotherapy procedure specifically for Class II treatments:
Colon hydrotherapy sessions are carried out using a FDA Cleared Class II Medical device to introduce water into the large bowel. Water is filtered and passes through ultra-violet unit that kills bacteria and viruses prior to the infusion of water into the colon by the colon equipment. The equipment carefully monitors the water pressure and temperature of the water throughout the procedure. The colon hydro therapist is to be operating the equipment at all times .
FDA Cleared Class II speculum (rectal nozzle) are a one time use disposable with the inflow and outflow hosing disposable as well.
Some Benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy
If your physician requires that you carry the insurance, we can help review the medical group’s insurance, perhaps, you do not need your own coverage; or, more prudently, it is easy to work this policy into the total insurance package for the medical group, insulating the medical doctor from claims that will arise for these particular colon hydrotherapy services.
Colon hydrotherapy also functions as an important diagnostic tool for the physician in extracting useful information digestive and clinical disorders.
