As a physician, you've seen the dramatic impact a sudden accident or illness can have – physically, mentally and emotionally. But the financial impact can be equally enormous. Should you suffer a debilitating event, the period of recovery can stretch from months to years, draining the funds you and your family rely on to maintain your lifestyle.
While unexpected sickness or injury may interrupt your livelihood, your financial resources needn't be affected.
Disability Insurance is the simplest, most cost-effective way to help protect yourself with a reliable flow of income during a period of disability, allowing you to focus on your recovery rather than worrying about financial security.
OMA Disability Insurance keeps pace with your needs throughout your career. Should a disability occur, you can count on a plan with unique benefits and features:
Eligible applicants for OMA Disability Insurance must be under age 65 who are actively practising medicine in Canada, and are members of the OMA or an Atlantic Medical Association/Society.
Expands the definition of Total Disability, so that you will be considered totally disabled and receive full benefits even if you return to work performing different duties and suffer no loss of income.
Once you complete residency, you can increase your coverage during the 31-day option period without medical evidence every year to age 55. Learn more
Keeps pace with inflation by allowing your monthly benefit to increase once you've been disabled for 12 consecutive months, in accordance with the Consumer Price Index, and subject to an annual maximum of 10%.
An additional monthly benefit will be paid into a locked-in, non-registered retirement fund while you're totally disabled after the 90-day Elimination Period. These retirement benefits are available when you reach age 65 or upon death.
At age 70, if you are providing at least 25 hours of medical services a week, you can extend your disability coverage with the 70+ DI Coverage option which allows you to choose a monthly benefit from $500 to a maximum of $10,000 from all sources with a 90 day Elimination Period. It's guaranteed acceptance - no medical underwriting required. Learn more
Should you become totally disabled and remain so for 90 consecutive days, premiums may be waived for as long as you remain totally disabled.
Rates depend on a variety of factors, from your gender to smoking status to which Elimination Period you select.
While you are automatically enrolled into Step Rates, you have the option to convert to Level Rate up to age 65. Step Rates change according to your age band (under 35, 35-44, 45-54 and 55-69) at the time of your plan renewal, whereas level premium rates have been designed to remain level over time as you age, and can't be adjusted on an individual basis due to changes in your age or health. However, level premium rates may change from time to time on a group basis depending on the insurance costs of the group. While we can't guarantee that rates will not be adjusted in the future, the OMA Disability Insurance Plan has a long history of stable rates. Premiums are renewable yearly and subject to applicable provincial taxes. Please note that for the 70+ DI Coverage option, only Step Rates are available.
