Product Insurance (Add On)

As a professional, if you want to protect your business from malpractice and cover liability arising out of products you sell, then you're in the right place!

Alternative Balance associations are the only organizations that offer coverage for products sold or manufactured for use in the beauty, fitness, and wellness industries , while also offering coverage for an individual's professional services. As an industry leader, Alternative Balance associations have successfully provided insurance for over 10,0000 members nationwide.

Because most trade associations do not have a real understanding of the products industry, companies and individuals in the beauty, fitness and wellness industries were having a difficult time finding cost-effective insurance options that completely covered their operations. Our policies are tailored to address the liability exposures many policies overlook or exclude, but that are important areas of coverage for the industry.

Alternative Balance continues to focus on offering all members the most comprehensive and affordable coverage available, regardless of how big or small the member's operations are.

Frequently Asked Questions Frequently Asked Questions

How do I purchase product liability?

Product liability is an "add on" to the membership, which includes our standard plan of professional and general liability coverage. Product Liability Coverage must be purchased online and is currently only available to new members and members ready to renew.

New members simply choose the product liability option on our application. Click "Buy Policy" to get started. If you are renewing your membership, renew as usual online and add this option on your renewal application.

What are the add on rates for product liability?

Our rates are based on your annual gross sales.

  • Up to $50,000 the rate is $650 a year
  • $50,001-100,000 the rate is $750 a year

Why are the product liability rates so low? I've gotten quotes for 2-3 times as much?

Our rates (all around) are much lower because of our large number of association members nationwide and the efficiency of our automated system, which cuts administrative costs.

What products are excluded?

  • Drugs, Pharmaceuticals, Vitamins, and/or Supplements intended to be ingested.
  • Any product requiring a prescription.
  • Toys, except when included for no additional charge as a promotional item with sale of an approved health or beauty product.

Where is my proof of product liability?

Log in to your account center, click My Policies, choose the most current policy, then scroll down the page to the Download Options section and click the button that says "Product Endorsements." This endorsement document is your proof of product liability coverage.

Why do I have to add the product liability online only?

To keep our rates low, we have designed our own automated, online system. Minimizing our administrative costs enables us to pass significant savings on to our members.
