Know what financial protection you may have through your school
The Med Plus Advantage (MPA) program provides quality insurance to about 1 in 3 medical students in the U.S, through their medical school.
If your medical school does not participate in the MPA program you may want to ask your Dean or program administrator if they are aware of the features and benefits of the program-disability insurance, life insurance, and accidental death and dismemberment insurance. All tailored for medical students.
