British Osteopathic Association

Professional Indemnity, Personal Accident and HMRC Tax Investigation Insurance

BOA Block Professional Indemnity Insurance Scheme for Registered Osteopaths – designed by osteopaths for osteopaths with  £10 million professional indemnity cover and £25,000 personal accident cover

The BOA’s insurance scheme has for many years set the standard which has to a great extent enabled a competitive market to flourish. As a result, osteopaths have benefitted with a stable cost and ever-increasing scope of cover.

The BOA’s block professional indemnity scheme:

• Is underwritten by Royal & Sun Alliance (RSA), a company which has over 30 years’ experience of writing osteopathic policies and understands osteopaths and osteopathy as a profession

• Is managed by its broker, Lockton, which is involved in primary healthcare through NHS Trusts, private hospitals, and with affinity organisations in dentistry, care facility providers, and GPs. Lockton’s staff have been involved with the BOA since 2003 and handled insurance for complementary medicine for 25 years

• Is sustainable because premiums collected over the past five years of the scheme can cushion the effect of any large claims without affecting the premium

• Allows insurers to communicate risk management strategies to maintain the low risk profile of the scheme

• If you are unfortunate enough to suffer a claim or complaint the BOA works to support members in partnership with our brokers and insurers who have a proven track record in handling osteopathic claims and will aim to ensure that an outcome is reached which is satisfactory to all parties.

• Is competitively priced due to the collective bargaining power of its members with concessions given to first year graduates.
