As a medical student, your ability to earn a future income is your most valuable asset. Unforeseen events like illnesses or accidents can have big financial implications. Imagine if you lost the ability to practice medicine. If you had to leave medical school, not only would your future earning potential be jeopardized, you would also face having to start repaying student loans.

Insurance for Today and Tomorrow

It’s easy to think that insurance is important only when you get older. But the best time to think about insurance is when you’re young and healthy. The older you get, the more costly it becomes. This means that the sooner you can get your insurance needs covered, the more cost effective it will be. And if your health suffers, it may be much more difficult, or impossible, to qualify for insurance.
