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.
When applying, a doctor will need to provide medical support which documents the medical condition(s) and how the impairment prevents the doctor from performing the duties of his or her occupation.
A doctor will also be required to provide financial information as well as documentation which establishes the occupational duties at the time of disability.
