Who is NASW Assurance Services?

NASW Assurance Services (ASI) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of NASW and exists to manage social worker, as well as other behavioral health professionals, insurance programs with our policyholders’ best interests in mind. We work hard to be a socially responsible organization dedicated to improving the lives of behavioral health professionals.

In all our insurance products, we offer excellent value: the best possible product to meet the specific needs of behavioral health professionals at the most competitive group rates. ASI understands the abundant rewards of helping others. We also understand the importance of assessing and minimizing risk when working in today’s litigious society.

As social workers and other behavioral health professionals become increasingly subject to malpractice lawsuits, defense against such claims, even when they are groundless or fraudulent, can be extremely expensive. Consequently, liability insurance is no longer simply an option; it’s a necessity.

ASI offers one of the largest, strongest, most stable programs in the world written expressly for behavioral health professionals.

We select a high-quality, affordable program tailored to the broad scope of practicing in the behavioral health field. We manage the program to ensure policyholders receive excellent, caring customer service. We provide risk management education and importantly, we advocate on your behalf if you’re unfairly denied coverage or renewal.

Unlike many insurance companies focusing on creating profits for corporate shareholders, our goal is to pay program expenses that invest in initiatives that benefit policyholders and advance the profession.

Our offices are located in Frederick, Maryland. Contact us at
