Supplementary Policy

CPBA recognizes that some pharmacists may be provided automatic E&O coverage through their employer. In order to have peace of mind, pharmacists now have the option to purchase a “supplementary” policy that will help cover you for potential possible coverage gaps in your employer’s policy. It is important to note that you must have VALID primary coverage in order for the supplementary insurance to respond. Please ensure that the primary coverage has not lapsed, was cancelled nor is invalid.



  • Important: Enter license Number as XX - XXXX (include the dash)
  • Supplementary Liability Coverage

    Coverage period: July 1, 2020 to July 1, 2021
    [Enter '1' in the quantity box to select your coverage]

    NOTE: Members with other eligible coverage may purchase a supplementary policy ($3 000 000 per occurance/$5 000 000 aggregate) for the great rate of $35 premium to cover gaps to their employer's policy and/or increase limits of an employer's policy.
