The value of having financial and income security is very high for active physicians. But what does it mean to have financial and income security for a physician?


Defining Physician Disability Insurance

To have financial and income security means making sure you still receive monetary gains even if we're not able to work. This can be done with physician disability insurance, which is a type of coverage that provides money for an injury or sick leave taken due out-of -office circumstances like long term illness; it doesn't matter what caused them!


There are generally two main forms of disability insurance: short term and long term. Short term disability insurance covers physicians between 3–6 months and replaces up to 80 percent of your income while you’re covered. Common disabilities covered by short term insurance include: back injuries, arthritis, childbirth or maternity leave, and vehicle accident injuries.


Long term disability insurance is usually the more popular option for people who can't work any longer because of serious illness or injury. This type of policy covers you until age 65 and replaces your take-home pay if needed, which could be why it's so common among older workers in America today!


Common injuries covered by long-term disability insurance include:


  • Cancer

  • Mental health disorders

  • Vehicle accidents

  • Bone breaks

  • Musculoskeletal disorders
