Physician Disability Insurance

As you start your career, quality disability insurance is the key to keeping your finances secure in the event of accident, injury, or medical emergency.

The largest discounts are available to residents & fellows

The top insurance companies provide discounts for training physicians and they last for the life of the policy -not just until graduation. There are not a lot of chances to score discounts on true own-occupation disability insurance, so taking advantage of these discounts is a must.

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.

We work with physicians at over 400 medical centers

Our team has worked with physicians from the top resident and fellowship programs in the world


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
