Florida health spas or health studios are regulated by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Human Services (FDAHS).
Both the Department and Statute 501.016 on Consumer Protection in Florida law requires the posting of a $25,000 surety bond as a prerequisite for licensing.
AmeriPro Surety Bonds provides both the new and renewal Florida health spa surety bonds.
If your health spa business:
If the above does not apply to you, you should check to determine beforehand if the surety bond is required.
The purpose of the Florida health spa bond is to protect the customers of a licensed spa or studio who have failed to live up to their contractual obligations.
In a broader sense, the bond also protects from acts of fraud, theft, or criminal activity that a health spa or studio could conceivably commit against any customers.
The Florida health spa bond, to be certain, then, is not a protection for a health spa.
Rather, the bond only protects customers from wrongful acts committed by a health spa club.
The duration of this surety bond is one year from the date of issuance.
The bond thereafter renews on an annual basis.
Ideally, the Florida health spa bond should always have an effective date which runs concurrent with licensing. This protects against any lapse in bond coverage.
While the bond is for $25,000, you will only pay a small percentage of that amount.
You may pay as little as $375 annually for this bond; however, the amount you will pay will be determined by your credit score.
AmeriPro Surety Bonds uses a “soft pull” inquiry which will not adversely lower your credit ranking.
And, regardless of your credit standing, our agency will in all likelihood be able to get you bonded.
