Disability Insurance for Physician Assistants

Disability Insurance for Physician Assistant




Physician assistants should secure true own-occupation disability insurance as soon as they begin their working careers. It is especially important for a physician assistant to have high-quality disability insurance coverage due to the likelihood of a medical profession facing a career-disrupting injury or sickness. While medical professionals don’t necessarily have a dangerous occupation, even a minor health setback could cause a medical pro to miss work. In some cases a relatively minor health condition could end a career.

Example: If a physician assistant contracts a blood-born illness, they could lose the career they worked so hard to achieve. Suddenly the PA is out of work and financial stress begins to rear its ugly head. If the the PA has a disability insurance policy, however, then monthly income is provided as a safety net. If the PA has a “true own-occupation” disability insurance policy, they can even continue to collect their disability benefit while they begin working in another career. Imagine taking on a new career path teaching at a PA program and having the financial security of disability benefits that continue to pay. THESE MONTHLY INCOME BENEFITS CONTINUE EVEN IF YOU’RE WORKING IN A NEW CAREER.
