For physicians, surgeons, dentists, chiropractors, and other medical professionals, the types of documentation that will be required during the disability application process will depend on whether the disability policy is a group policy through a hospital or large practice, or whether it is an individual policy purchased from an agent.

It is essential to have a copy of your disability policy.
