Insurance Designed for Estheticians

1. Occurrence Form vs. Claims Made

Occurrence Form coverage covers any claim filed after your policy expires as long as the actual incident took place while your policy was active. Whereas with a Claims Made policy you would not be covered for claims that occurred during the coverage period but that were filed after your policy lapsed or expired. Estheticians Alliance offers Occurrence Form coverage.

Professional Esthetician Coverage

2. Individual vs. Shared Coverage

What’s the difference? With a Shared Aggregate policy, you share the coverage limits with everyone else who carries that program’s policy.

If the Shared Aggregate limit under the policy has been fully paid out on claims filed against other members, your claim will not be covered.

With an Individual Aggregate policy, such as Estheticians Alliance, you are covered for your entire individual policy limits regardless of claims paid for other members.

Additional Benefits

Estheticians Alliance offers additional special benefits to its members, including:

  • Exceptional personal service with live specialists who are available from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday, and some weekend hours
  • Instant coverage and digital proof of insurance
  • Insurance coverage follows you wherever you go
  • If you attend industry trade shows or offer services in clients’ homes or other venues, you are still covered

If you’re currently practicing as a professional esthetician or are a current student, purchasing esthetician insurance should be a top priority for your career. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that every client encounter will be perfect. Accidents happen, so you have to be prepared.

Estheticians Alliance has the perfect solution—a comprehensive insurance plan that provides coverage for a wide range of events and services as well as exclusive bonus benefits. You can protect your career from potential financial catastrophe.

Estheticians Alliance offers liability insurance to estheticians as well as beauty professionals practicing more than 350 modalities at no additional cost.
