Student Term Life Insurance Coverage Details
Features & Benefits
Eligible medical students have guaranteed acceptance in this plan during the open enrollment period (July 1 through December 31).
Choice of Benefit Levels
Select $50,000 of term life insurance coverage for just $20 a year or $25,000 of coverage for $10 a year. Spouse coverage is also available.
Double Benefits for Accidental Death
When death is due to a covered accident, your beneficiary is paid double the regular benefit.
Benefits for Loss of Sight or Limbs
This plan pays up to the full regular benefit amount for the entire and irrecoverable loss of sight in both eyes, loss of two limbs or even the loss of use of two limbs due to a covered accident. One-half of the benefit is paid for the loss of one limb, or loss of its use, or loss of sight in one eye due to a covered accident.
Premiums Waived if You Become Disabled
If you become totally disabled prior to age 60, and the disability lasts at least nine (9) consecutive months, your premiums will be waived as long as the disability continues, up to age 65.
Coverage May Continue After Graduation
As long as premiums are paid when due, you can continue coverage through medical school even if your health condition changes. After graduation, you can continue at the preferred group physician rates without any medical approval. You'll also be eligible to apply for our lowest "Preferred Plus" rates and/or an increased term life benefit amount on an underwritten basis.
You're eligible to apply for this plan if you're under age 40 and a full-time student of a medical school or an osteopathic medical school approved by an appropriate accrediting agency. What's more, your spouse or domestic partner is eligible to enroll (if under age 40) - even if you don't!
Your coverage will be effective on the first day of the month after we receive your enrollment form provided eligibility requirements are met and the premium is paid when due.
Renewability and Termination
Once insured, you can renew this student protection during medical school as long as eligibility is maintained, the premiums are paid when due, the group policy remains in force and the American Medical Association continues to sponsor this program.
