A note from National:

"AMTA's liability insurance, provided through HPSO, requires that covered AMTA members are appropriately licensed to provide professional services and that they comply with state, federal, and facility guidelines relative to scope of practice and practice setting.

If there is a government order that mandates non-essential businesses close, and massage therapy is not considered essential in that governmental jurisdiction, then the therapist would be practicing outside of the governmental order, guidance, law or regulation; and coverage would be excluded in the event of a claim.

Call HPSO with specific questions about AMTA's coverage: 1-888-253-1474."
