Comparison: ABMP vs AMTA Massage Insurance

As a massage and bodywork professional, you deserve the full support and benefits of a professional association, not just someone selling insurance. And, as you can see by the value ABMP membership gives you, there’s a clear choice for massage association membership, which is why more professionals choose ABMP membership than any other association in the profession, even the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA).

What is a shared member aggregate?

 

Curious about why ABMP massage insurance does not have a shared aggregate while AMTA insurance does? ABMP president Les Sweeney explains more about the differences between ABMP and AMTA liability insurance in this blog. Specifically, the liability insurance included in ABMP membership gives you coverage at $2 million per incident and $6 million per year, just for you. Other liability insurance policies, like AMTA’s, have a master limit that is shared among all members.

Who is ABMP?

Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP) is a national membership association that goes above and beyond great liability insurance to make it easier for massage and bodywork practitioners and students to succeed. Founded in 1987, ABMP membership stands alone for its quality and value.

ABMP's comprehensive program of liability and business property insurance sets the standard for the profession. Specifically tailored to meet the needs of massage therapists and bodyworkers, the policy included in membership offers "occurrence form" coverage; professional, general, and product liability coverage with the highest limits available; no additional charge for Additional Insured Endorsements; and no "shared member" aggregate, like AMTA insurance provides.

Our business philosophy is summed up by our credo: expectmore. ABMP members receive the most responsive, knowledgeable service and a comprehensive package of member benefits that includes free CE hours, dozens of member discounts, a free business website, the award-winning Massage & Bodywork magazine, dedicated legislative advocacy, and more.

Ready to take your massage and bodywork career to the next level by joining a professional association? Get started with ABMP to gain access to the best value membership and liability insurance on the market.
