Physicians can now purchase up to $20,000/month individual disability benefit.  This is a significant increase.

Currently, the maximum benefit any company will issue a physician is $15,000/month but some companies will participate up to $20,000/month. This means if you have $10,000 or $15,000 in force with one company, you may purchase the other $5000 or $10,000/month with another company.

Furthermore, some companies are increasing their income and participation limits. This means they will offer a larger amount of benefit in proportion to your current income. Previously to qualify for $15,000/month benefit, it would have required $456,000 of annual income. With the new participation limits, it would require $350,000 of income to qualify for $15,000/month benefit.

If you currently are at the maximum level on your policy, it would require new medical and financial underwriting to qualify for the new benefit.
