Short answer is no, although it depends on what services you want to offer.

Long answer: If you want to be a lone wolf, building projects yourself from the ground up, it's useful to have a diverse foundation of knowledge across a wide array of disciplines, UX included. If you're not building web sites – for example, maybe you're building process automations on top of web technologies – it might not be as important. If you intend to bring in other contractors to work on projects with you, you could always bring in a UX expert to help out on that aspect of your projects so that you can focus on your areas of expertise.
