Malpractice Insurance for OCA Members.

Proud Partners

CPH Insurance is proud to serve Ohio Counseling Association 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.

As a member of OCA, students are granted complimentary insurance. To activate, please refer to your welcome email from OCA for the custom link to register your insurance policy online.

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. OCA 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 “ACA and State Chapters” 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:

  • Occupation
  • 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, OCA 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 “ACA and State Chapters” 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. Click here for a business entity malpractice insurance quote.
