Insurance: confidence and reassurance with the BCA

We know that professional insurance is an important investment to our members. We are proud that BCA Insurance Services provide the most robust protection for chiropractors on the market, covering both claims by patients and defence costs at the GCC. Pete Lishman the Managing Director at BCA Insurance Services has provided an insight into the policy they offer below:

Wider cover – While some providers use a basic Public Liability policy, with an extension for “Treatment Risks”, our policy goes further than this, providing you with Professional Indemnity cover, which would include things such as libel, slander, and breach of confidentiality.

Peace of mind – BCA Insurance Services offer insurance-backing for both Medical Malpractice as well as GCC defence costs. Some providers may only cover Medical Malpractice through insurance, leaving you at risk of not having access to funds to cover GCC defence costs.

Regulation – All of our products are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and you have the protection the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) who are there should the insurer fail to meet your claim. We understand the BCA wants to act in the best interest of their members, including their consumer rights.

Professional Support – We are a Chartered Insurance Broker, ensuring that the people that help you with enquiries, complaints or claims are all qualified insurance professionals.
