Home Health Care

An insurance program that offers package p&c coverage for home health and hospice providers, medical equipment suppliers, companion care providers, and other home health care providers.

Fact: 10,000 baby boomers will turn 65 every day from now until 2030.  We’re not just planning for right now.  We’re helping you plan for 150 years from now.

We’re facing an unprecedented demographic shift.  The global home healthcare market is anticipated to reach $517B by 2027 with a projected 8% annual growth rate.  While in-home nursing programs have doubled, Americans are living longer.  By 2030, the number of Americans ages 65 and older is projected to exceed 70 million, which means seniors will outnumber children in the U.S. 

For over 40 years, Amwins Program UnderwritersHome Health Care insurance program has offered tailored insurance solutions for medical suppliers, equipment providers, drug distributors, visiting nurse associations (VNAs) and other agencies.  The program can be accessed through independent agents or brokers.  

Imagine how good you would be at something if you practiced it every day for 40 years.  With Amwins by your side, you not only get industry-specific expertise and data-driven insights - you get a direct extension of your team.

Amwins in the news:

Marie Gaudette, program manager, shares her insight on the types of policies home health care insurance providers should consider to appropriately manage risk. 

In this article, she discusses how a business owners' policy (BOP) will usually not work for home health care businesses. Therefore, most insurance carriers write general liability coverage instead of a BOP for a home health care provider. It’s also recommended that you place your professional liability (PL) policy - sometimes referred to as medical malpractice coverage - with the same insurance carrier that writes your commercial general liability (CGL) policy.
