Many more insurance carriers now offer own occupation coverage to dentists and physicians than in years past - allowing for more options and better prices in many cases. 10 years ago - there were less than 3 carriers offering this level of protection to members of both business communities.

“This market is extremely volatile so changes may occur very quickly. I recommend to anyone who may have hesitated in the past about obtaining this form of coverage to get it now before these options possibly disappear.”
