Liability Insurance

March 19, 2020: Due to COVID-19, many of you may be doing tele-counseling. The coverage provided with the ASCA membership includes coverage for tele-counseling as long it's part of your school activities. The limit is $1 million per occurrence/aggregate and pays after the school coverage has paid.



All professional and student ASCA members are automatically covered for $1 million in professional liability coverage at no additional cost. Learn more.

For ASCA student professional liability coverage, please follow the procedures below:
Complete the input-capable Certificate of Insurance Form. (You must have Acrobat Reader to open the PDF file and input information.) Enter your name, address and ASCA membership number. Please print two copies of your certificate of insurance form before exiting the website; retain one copy for your records and give a copy to your educational institution. (Certificates are not personalized; however, the generic certificate along with proof of membership should be sufficient to show proof of insurance.) Note, the liability insurance policy renews on Oct. 1, and a new certificate for Oct. 1, 2020–Oct. 1, 2021 will be available closer to that date. Please print your ASCA membership form to show your membership extends throughout your graduate program.

Note: For ASCA professional members, coverage is only available for W-2 employed educators working in a U.S.-based school. Contract employees are not eligible for coverage. For ASCA student members, coverage is only available for students attending a U.S.-based school. Professional liability coverage is available for nonW-2 employees or for counseling activities outside the school environment and the scope of school counseling.
