    Are there any companies that provide discounted rates for liability insurance for MLS students?  Can you recommend or provide info about them?
    Do you know what a reasonable rate (or range of rates) for individuals to be covered with limits of not less than $1,000,000 per occurrence and $3,000,000 per aggregate covering all activities, including but not limited to any and all claims from damages arising by reason of bodily injury, personal injury, death, or damage to persons or property.

    When I was working, I had liability insurance through the Chicago Insurance Company which was offered through the Allied Health Purchasing
    group Association.  I don't know if they still offer this or not.  My premium was $122 for $2,000,000/$4,000,000.  Maybe ASCLS National office has information on this.
