Allied World Assurance Company Holdings, AG (NYSE: AWH) announced today that Allied World U.S. and the American Professional Agency, Inc.

Coverage mirrors that provided to psychiatrists by Allied World and APA, Inc., including legal liability, personal and advertising injury, privacy, and licensing board complaint coverage. The program also provides robust risk management services and support for policyholders.

Grace Meek, Senior Vice President, Programs, Allied World U.S. stated, "The APA is one of the largest and most respected mental health malpractice providers in the country and we have worked with them for several years providing comprehensive, specialized programs for professionals in the field. We are proud to partner with them again on this new program and are confident that our tailored coverage and risk management services will be highly beneficial for our mutual clients.”

APA Inc.’s Executive Vice President, Peter T. Imbert stated, “We are proud to partner with Allied World on this stand-alone coverage for psychiatric nurse practitioners. As the sole broker of professional liability insurance for members of the APA and the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, the two largest psychiatric associations in the nation, we continually strive to meet the evolving needs of mental health practitioners.
