Does your disability insurance provide the coverage you need?

Work with a physician disability insurance specialist.

Discover options you may be missing.

There may be riders and other disability insurance options you aren’t aware of that you can either add to your current policy or are available through another insurance company. Our team will work with you to identify which of the features would benefit you and give you professional guidance on implementing these options.

Know the difference in group vs individual coverage.

Own-occupation gives you consistent coverage throughout your entire career while employer-provided plans can leave you without any income when you need it most. Learn more about the key differences between employer-provided group plans and own-occupation disability insurance below.

Analyze your current coverage or apply for your first policy.

Often times residents and fellows get coverage with the short term in mind, but when you’re an attending physician there may be features missing from your policy. Gain confidence in your coverage by having a disability insurance specialist review your plan with you.

Our advisors can review your current coverage or help you put your first own-occupation disability insurance policy in place.

Own Occupation

What is an own-occupation policy?

Own-occupation covers physicians who have become disabled and are unable to perform the majority of their specialty-specific duties. Under own-occupation, the policyholder receives benefits if they are unable to work in their “own occupation,” even if they are able to find employment in another profession or even another medical specialty.

Why do you need own-occupation disability insurance?

In the case you become disabled and unable to perform your specialty, own-occupation allows you to continue working at whatever capacity you want while maintaining your expected income. Whether it’s keeping up with your mortgage, adding to a college fund for your children, or retiring on the terms you expected, own-occupation disability insurance guarantees you stay on track financially when it comes to your goals.

Michaela provided excellent advice regarding student loan repayment, investments, and home buying when I was entering residency. I highly recommend her and this company for any physicians that are in search of financial advising.

Michaela gave a great presentation on medical student financial literacy and making the transition from student to resident to attending physician. I would highly recommend her for anyone with financial questions about medical student loans and financial planning!
