Thank you for your question renee2126. Botox is a purified protein used to address muscles associated with facial expression. Most, if not all, injectors are covered by medical malpractice insurance. Laws vary from state to state. Arrangements can be made on who pays for the insurance (doctor, practice, etc.). Please consult with a doctor for specific
recommendations. Good luck!
All MD physicians should have malpractice insurance no matter where they practice, that is standard for anyone practicing medicine. Best, Dr. Emer.
Thank you for your question. Practicing physicians must have their own malpractice insurance that covers the physician at all of the office locations that they practice medicine. Each physician's policy is different as to how they are covered, some have "full" plastic surgery coverage, while others may only have "spa" coverage.
Every MD that practices medicine, including injection of Botox for cosmetic purposes in a medusa should have a malpractice insurance.
Most states require doctors to carry professional liability insurance. In a few states, such as Florida, medical malpractice insurance is optional.
A physician in NY will likely have his own insurance to cover this, but everyone is different and you have to check with the physician.
This is a question that has a number of possible answers. Some medspas have their own insurance that may cover the injecting physician but this is not a requirement. Most physicians also carry their own malpractice insurance. HOWEVER, most physicians personal malpractice insurance will NOT cover them while injecting Botox or anything else in a medspa that they do not own. A separate rider can be added and purchased by the physician in those cases. Not having this or not looking into this up front can be a foolish oversight.
Any physician in a Medispa who oversees it is responsible for the Botox that is administered by him/her. Best, Dr. Green
A physician injecting in a spa would carry their own malpractice insurance.
The spa may carry some also. A nurse injector may carry their own insurance and the spa and MD may have additional coverage.
Hope everything is OK. Botox wears off over time.
