Specialty Occupation Disability Insurance Policies for Physicians

Specialty occupation policies for physicians are a specific type of disability insurance policy that covers a physician’s specialty should they become disabled from working in that specialty.

Physicians spend years in school and training to become doctors. Often, they take a path to a medical specialty that requires additional training and education. But what happens if they become disabled and are no longer able to work in that specialty?

Specialty occupation policies can protect a physician from that situation. Even if the physician is capable of working in a different occupation or specialty, the key is that they are no longer able to perform the duties of their recognized medical specialty.

What is a specialty occupation disability policy for physicians?

A specialty occupation disability policy provides disability benefits should a physician no longer be able to practice in their specialty. For example, an orthopedic surgeon who can no longer perform orthopedic surgeries would be entitled to disability benefits for that reason if they have a specialty occupation policy.
