Ohio National downgraded by Moody’s

Ohio National News

Moody’s downgraded Ohio National from stable to negative.  Moody’s dropped Ohio National’s rating from A3 to Baa1 as of June 28, 2022.  

At InsuranceMd we specialize in assisting doctors in purchasing Own Occupation disability insurance.  Currently, only 7 insurance carriers offer physicians “True” Own Occupation disability insurance.  Ameritas, Guardian, MassMutual, Mutual of Omaha, Ohio National, Principal, and The Standard.  Since 2016, Ohio National has been a player in the Own Occupation market for physicians.  Because of this, we have sold Ohio National products in circumstances where coverage and pricing were in the best interest of the physician.  

Since we pledge to our clients that we only sell “True” Own Specialty Disability Insurance we will continue to quote Ohio National’s Long Term Disability product.  However, we also pledge that we work with carriers that are rated A or better.

We recommend that physicians read the report published by Moody’s to determine their own level of comfort.  It should be noted that Ohio National still holds an A rating with AM Best from September of 2021.
