The purpose of this regulation is to create an insurance fund that is directly managed by the Order, as other professional orders have already done. This fund will replace the current group plan while maintaining existing obligations and benefits.
This change will simplify premium payments for members of the Order, as this sum will be included in the annual dues, and should result in stabilizing premiums over the short term and reducing costs over the medium term.
By implementing such an insurance fund, the Order will be more agile in adapting insurance benefits to the evolution of members’ practices as well as to legislative and regulatory requirements. The fund will also promote synergy with the profession’s guidance activities, thereby allowing us to improve our prevention processes.
