The American Counseling Association has Expanded its Partnership with HPSO and Offers a New Discount for ACA Members!


As part of this expansion, ACA members will receive a 10% discount on professional liability insurance purchased through HPSO as a benefit of membership. Please note: Active ACA Members who are current HPSO policyholders will have the discount applied at policy renewal. Minimum premium for a Professional Counselor is $100.

The relationship between ACA and HPSO began with an insurance crisis facing many ACA members. In July of 2003, The Reciprocal Alliance (TRA) became insolvent. One of TRA’s clients was the ACA, with over 20,000 TRA policyholders. ACA immediately began searching the market for a financially sound carrier to enroll displaced ACA policyholders. ACA quickly identified HPSO as the best choice, able to offer all ACA members a superior product, and underwritten by an “A” rated carrier. HPSO responded with a web-based solution where members could apply for, purchase and receive a new policy immediately with no gap in coverage.

The American Counseling Association continues to encourage its members – student and professional – to carry professional liability insurance to protect their finances and their professional practice. Read the press release regarding ACA's expanded partnership with HPSO.

It’s easy to apply! You will just need to have your 7-digit ACA membership number available for membership confirmation. Once your membership is confirmed, your recalculated rate with the discount* will be displayed and you can continue with the application process.
