Disability Insurance for Physicians

True Own Specialty Disability Insurance

Covers you from any sickness or injury that prevents you from working in your medical specialty. 

The plans we offer provide a preferred definition of Total Disability, referred to as Own-Specialty. 

This means you are eligible to receive your full benefit while you are unable to perform the duties of your own medical specialty without prohibiting you from electing to work in another occupation while still collecting your full disability benefit.

If you are relying on your employer-sponsored long-term disability plan, or if you have a policy through Northwestern Mutual, the AMA, or another professional medical association, then you may not have adequate disability coverage.  

Own Occupation / Own Specialty Disability Insurance:

  • Pays your full Tax-Free benefit if you are disabled in your medical specialty, even if you elect to work in another occupation.

  • Offers guaranteed locked-in premiums

  • It provides guaranteed contract provisions along with the guaranteed ability to renew your policy regardless of your health or current income. 

  • It contains Partial/Residual benefits that allow you to collect a proportionate benefit if you are disabled but still working in your medical specialty.

  • Offers Cost of Living riders (COLA) that protects your benefit against the risk of inflation.

  • It provides you the ability to increase your coverage later on in your career as your income increases, regardless of your health.

Group Employer-Sponsored Disability Insurance is not good enough

True Own Specialty Disability Insurance protects doctors from the inability to perform the material and substantial duties of their medical specialty.  It allows you to continue to collect your full tax-free benefit even if you elect to work in another occupation regardless of your income.  

A physician’s most valuable asset is their ability to work in their medical specialty.  Safeguard the investment you made in yourself with True Own Specialty Disability Insurance.  

Remember – If you are relying on your employer-sponsored long-term disability plan, or if you have a policy through Northwestern Mutual, the AMA, or another professional medical association, then you may not have adequate disability coverage.
