Level Term Life Insurance

An exclusive life insurance option for physicians and their families, at a rate that remains fixed for the duration of the selected term.

What is Level Term Life?

AMA-sponsored Group Level Term Life Insurance provides physicians with solid, level protection—all for a cost that can comfortably fit your budget. Combined with its exclusive rates for physicians and high benefit amounts, this coverage is a great way to help protect your loved ones if something should happen to you. Up to $4 million in solid insurance protection offered in 10, 15 and 20 year terms.

“Level” means that your rate will remain the same, or level, for the term period selected. AMA members receive an 8% discount.

Budget friendly, may be ideal for families

You can apply for coverage for your spouse or domestic partner at the same budget friendly physician rates. Spouses or domestic partners can apply for Level Term Life coverage even if you choose not to apply.

You can purchase $25,000 in coverage for each eligible child for a flat rate of $60 a year. The Level Term Life plan includes a renewability option should you wish to continue your family’s protection beyond the original term period.

Cover terminal illness expenses with living benefits

While insured, you may request living benefits—also referred to as “accelerated death benefits”. This allows a terminally ill with a life expectancy of 24 months or less to receive a portion of his or her death benefit in a lump sum to help cover expenses during such a difficult time. Please note: Living Benefits may be taxable. Please consult with your personal tax advisor for details.

Personal service from our Insurance Specialists

As a physician, your schedule can be very demanding and carving out time to address your insurance needs might be challenging.  Our Insurance Specialists are here to help make that process easier and to help you select the life insurance coverage that meets your unique needs. And unlike other insurance agents, our Insurance Specialists do not work on sales-based commissions.
