the full story

In early 2000, a few brokers came together hoping to create a disability insurance package for medical students. Their goal was to create a plan that would have the flexibility to grow with their career. The idea came from the fact that residency was demanding and would often change the residents’ insurability by the time they finish residency. After months of research and negotiation with underwriters, the first version was brought to live. The initial plan was simple and almost identical to other individual professional disability plans in the market place. With the help of a few selected advisors like us, who continued to provide feedback to the insurer in the following years, new features, discounts and increased opportunities were introduced to help accommodate the dynamic career path of a physician. Unlike almost any insurance you own in life, disability insurance is likely to be the only insurance you can purchase once at the beginning of your career and not touched until you retire. It makes sense to go with the best option to protect your life-long career.
