Do you operate an independent practice?
Is your practice incorporated?
Do you have employees billing under your organization?
CPA and participating provincial/territorial CPAP association members have exclusive access to discounted business package and clinic professional liability insurance. Coverage is designed to meet the specific needs of independent psychology practitioners.
In the event of a claim, both the treating professional (any regulated health professional) and the clinic are likely to be named in a statement of claim or lawsuit. Business Professional Liability Insurance protects the clinic and its assets in such circumstances. You should purchase this coverage if you have health professionals working for, or on behalf of, your clinic and billing under your clinic name. In addition, if you do not have employees but have an incorporated clinic, this coverage is automatically extended to you.
This policy provides insurance coverage for members who are operating a clinic. Included is Commercial General Liability coverage, Property Insurance and Crime protection to ensure comprehensive coverage for your business. Commercial General Liability insurance provides coverage for bodily injury (for instance, slip and fall) and property damage caused to a third party.
Property coverage protects against damage to contents, including medical equipment, and loss of revenues caused by an interruption of business activities arising because of an insured loss. Crime coverage protects against financial loss due to dishonesty, fraud, or theft of money, securities or other property owned by the office/clinic.
Members who operate a private practice in which they are the sole professional, and also rent or own a space for which they require contents coverage can purchase this coverage. The Property/Crime package includes $50,000 of contents insurance and $10,000 crime coverage. Higher limits are also available.
Details of the basic coverage is outlined below. If you require additional limits or for more coverage information, please contact BMS Group.
