Liability Insurance for Entities

If you have W-2 employees and are interested in liability coverage or worker’s compensation insurance for your organization, we’ll get you in touch with our partner insurance agency so that you can speak directly with a real person to get the information and coverage you need.

Directors & Officers Insurance for Non-Profits

If your practice operates as a nonprofit with a board of directors, Directors & Officers coverage (with EPLI) is available.

The Association will be exploring the possibility of providing coverage to members outside the United States, as well. We do not know whether or not this will be possible, but will be looking into it. Please stay tuned for updates in the coming year.
