Features & Benefits

Acceptance Guaranteed

Eligible medical students have guaranteed acceptance in this plan during the open enrollment, July 1 through December 31.

Choice of Benefit Levels

Select $100,000 of term life insurance coverage for just $40 a year or $50,000 of coverage for $20 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 as 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.
