            • Psychology’s professional liability insurance program…

            • Message Regarding the CPA/CPAP BMS Liability Insurance Program

              • Dear Members,

                We hope that you are continuing to stay healthy during this challenging time.

                On or around May 1st, you will receive the 2020-2021 CPA/CPAP[1] Liability Insurance Program renewal from the program’s broker, BMS. You will see that Professional Liability Insurance (PLI) premium has increased this year. We regret that the increase comes at this challenging time of COVID-19, but please know that the increase is not related to the pandemic but to the increased cost of claims on the psychology program. There has been a steady increase in the cost of claims on the program year over year, with several years where the costs of claims paid by the Insurer have exceeded the premium they collected.
