Group LTD coverage typically ends when you graduate, but yourMed Plus Advantage Group Long Term Disability (LTD) Plan coverage will continue to protect you until August 31 of the year you graduate. Therefore, your Essentials Disability Plan would become effective on September 1. That means you can apply now and not have to worry about paying a premium until after you start your residency.
Must be actively at work, as a student or resident, for the last 90 days. Must be under age 45. Must not have been declined for disability insurance by The Ohio National Life Assurance Corporation or Ohio National Life Insurance Company.
*Enrollment period for graduating students is from January 1 thru June 30.
**The Guaranteed Standard Issue feature is only available when your medical school or resident program elects to participate in the program. If your medical school or resident program does NOT agree to offer the program, you may still apply for coverage on a fully underwritten basis.
