Acupuncturists in Florida must show proof of medical malpractice insurance or proof of financial responsibility as a prerequisite to licensure. A surety bond will fulfill this requirement.
The State of Florida Board of Acupuncture requires the applicant to complete an application through the online portal, which includes paying the licensing fee and providing the associated required documentation such as: transcripts, license verification forms from each state that you are licensed, exam results, proof of completion of the “Clean Needle Technique,” any NCCAOM certifications, a birth certificate or driver’s license, etc.
Florida requires professional liability coverage in which a surety bond will fulfill the requirement. A surety bond for acupuncture licenses can be no less than $10,000 per claim, with a minimum total annual claims of not less than $30,000.
The premium you pay for a Florida Acupuncture Surety Bond is dependent on credit and the bond amount required. Our rates start at $100 for bonds $10,000 and under, and 1% of the bond amount for bonds over $10,000. Contact our Surety Bond Specialists for a free quote.
