Recently you received a notification from the OMA about a significant rate increase on OMA Disability Insurance.
Below are the facts.
- OMA DISABILITY INSURANCE
In 2010, the OMA rebated 45% of the premium on group disability insurance.
This rebate was reduced to zero (0) in 2017 and rates are now increasing – on average 22%.
- OMA LIFE INSURANCE
In 2010, the OMA rebated 65% of the premium on group term life insurance.
This rebate was reduced to 20% in 2020 which means your cost increased.
Understandably, these cost increases have made some physicians uncomfortable especially during a pandemic. You deserve better. We have negotiated an option to replace your OMA insurance with individually owned RBC Insurance with guaranteed rates and policy provisions.

- How do OMA group disability insurance rates compare – OMA vs RBC?
Most physicians have OMA group disability insurance purchased on a banded rate which means your OMA rates increase at age 30-34, 35-44, 45-54 and at age 56-64. RBC rates are guaranteed and cannot be changed by the insurer.
- How do OMA group life insurance rates compare – OMA vs RBC?
OMA group term life insurance rates increase every 5 years. RBC life rates are guaranteed and do not change for the term (usually a 10 or 20-year term). In most cases, RBC rates are less than the OMA rates (even after the OMA rebate).
