Dear AMTA Florida Members,
We attended a recent Legislative Summit meeting at the FSMTA Convention where it was discussed that there were some insurance cases where LMT’s were not covered by their liability insurance for using Tiger Balm. This caused alarm and concern, therefore we sought more information regarding our insurance benefits. Please rest assured that your AMTA Professional Liability Insurance Program includes an additional Product Liability segment which ‘covers legal obligations that result from a client’s unfavorable reaction to products you use during the professional massage services you provide’. The Tiger Balm case would have been covered. Further information will be provided regarding the recent Legislative meeting.
