Accidents happen, and we can’t always anticipate if or when we’ll be diagnosed with an illness, condition, or injury, which is why it’s important to have a disability policy that will help you pay your bills in the event that you can’t collect your normal paycheck from work.  See the amazing story of Dr. Feranmi Okanlami after he was injured as a resident (only 3 1/2 min long).

The Standard

Standard is consistently one of the most popular insurers for physicians.  You might want to take a look at this brief 3 minute video on the basics of disability insurance.  

Ohio National

Attention Residents!  I have all companies compete, but Ohio National usually gives the most affordable coverage for residents.  You may want to listen to this "The Whitecoat Investor" podcast by Dr. James Dahle  entitled Resident Physician FInancial Mistakes.


Here is a good video on the basics of disability insurance.  It is only a bit over 2 minutes long. 

Mass Mutual

Are you in a specialty that relies on fine motor skills?  This is a wake-up call video by Dr. Robert Kramer who obtained disability insurance only a few months before suffering a disability.  Also a good 2 minute overview of disability insurance.


If you are going into an independent practice different types of disability coverage can help sustain personal income as well as helpkeep the practice afloat.  This is an interesting  7 minute story if you share that entrepreneurial bent.
