The largest discounts are available to residents & fellows.

Now is the best time to buy disability insurance
You’re in your prime.
Disability insurance rates are based on your age and health so applying sooner than later can help you save. Each year you wait to apply you will pay between 5-7% more for the same coverage.
Your coverage will move with you.
Most new physicians switch employers multiple times within their first few years of training. With an individual disability insurance policy, you have coverage that remains the same from job to job without any extra work on your end.
Group vs Individual Plans
Employer-provided plans won’t give you the coverage you need in if you become sick or injured. Discover the major differences in coverage between group plans and individual plans in the chart below.
Employer Provided Disability Insurance
There is no guaranteed of coverage or policy renewal. Your employer can change your plan or cancel your coverage at any time
You don’t get to keep your coverage if you leave your current position
Any benefit received is taxed as ordinary income if provided by your employer
If you are working in any capacity your group plan will stop paying you
Own Occupation Disability Insurance
Policies from independent carriers are non-cancellable and guaranteed renewable which means the company cannot cancel or change your policy
You own your policy so it stays with you from job to job
Benefits are received completely tax-free
If you cannot do your primary duties your policy will pay you the full benefit. You will still have full freedom to work in any other capacity
