Malpractice Insurance for Psychology & Counseling
CPH Insurance is proud to serve the International Association of Psychology and Counseling members in support of mental health professional growth and stability.
Having served mental health professionals for 20 years, CPH Insurance insures students, provisionally licensed interns and fully licensed professionals with malpractice insurance.
Student members of IAPC are granted complimentary insurance.
Post Masters, interns under supervision, provisionally licensed, or associate level professionals who have not gained full licensure qualify for coverage with CPH Insurance at a base premium of $90. IAPC members have a reduced administrative fee ($10 as opposed to $20) – a $10 savings! To receive that reduced admin fee, it’s imperative to select IAPC from the “Select your Professional Association” drop down menu.
Fully licensed mental health professionals (Counselors, LPCs, Psychologists, LCSWs, LMHCs, etc.) are rated based off of the following:
- Employment type (employed or self-employed) and
- Number of hours worked / week (on a self-employed basis)
You may explore the CPH Insurance “Quick Quote” by inputting the information above and yielding a premium summary without submitting any of your personal information. Once again, IAPC members have a reduced administrative fee ($10 as opposed to $20) – a $10 savings! To receive that reduced admin fee, it’s imperative to select IAPC from the “Select your Professional Association” drop down menu.
CPH Insurance can also insure your registered business entity (LLC, PLLC, SCORP, etc.) associated with your mental health practice. Whether you operate a single-owner LLC with no employees or large corporation, it’s important to adequately cover your business entity with business entity professional liability insurance. By insuring your business entity, your individual self, as the owner, is assumed coverage. You would not need an individual policy separate from your business entity policy.
