ASFA® strives to make the strategic partnerships that benefit its members the most. Credibility is important when pursuing continuing education and niche marketing certifications. Keeping that in mind, ASFA® has partnered with HPSO (the world's largest healthcare insurance provider) to make sure that ASFA® certified fitness professionals can obtain insurance for their practice. Please read the following excerpt which may be found at: www.hpso.com/asfa
"At the American Sports and Fitness Association®, our goal is to serve fitness professionals country-wide. One important aspect of our association is to promote practice safety among our members and having appropriate professional liability insurance in place is an important component of a safe practice.
ASFA® recognizes the importance of providing our members with an insurance program that is not only affordable but also offers a plan designed to cover the unique needs of fitness professionals. After a thorough review, ASFA® is pleased to announce its new partnership with Healthcare Providers Service Organization (HPSO) as our new professional liability insurance provider
HPSO is one of the top specialists in administering professional liability insurance coverage to over 1,000,000 healthcare providers nationwide. The HPSO plan is underwritten by American Casualty Company, a CNA company and has received an "A" rating from A.M. Best for its financial strength and stability.
Many fitness professionals opt for a policy of their own, considering it essential given the volume of clients they see, the many responsibilities they have, and the oftentimes unpredictable nature of healthcare. With your own individual policy through HPSO, your interests come first - and yours alone. You'll have your own limits of liability to pay covered claims, and - where necessary - an attorney to defend you. HPSO also recognizes how important it is fitness professionals to protect their interests should they become involved in a disciplinary action against their license. That's why the plan available through HPSO includes coverage for License Protection."
