QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
What if you already have RBC, OMA or other disability coverage, can you still enroll?
Can any insurance broker enroll me in the OAR Insurance program?
NO. The OAR insurance plan with the 8 months free coverage is only available through Levine Financial Group.
Will I get a lower rate for the same product from another advisor?
NO. With RBC we negotiated a large case discount of 25% (plus an additional 15% step rate if you are under 35). This is the largest discount in the marketplace. If you are seeing a lower rate, perhaps another advisor is showing you a policy with different definitions and benefits.
Why apply through the OAR Insurance program?
Prior to the OAR insurance program there was no discount on insurance for Radiologists, no non-medical offerings and no special offer for residents or fellows.
As of 2021, there are over 760 Ontario Radiologists enrolled in the OAR insurance program and we have adjudicated over $4,500,000 in disability and critical illness claims.
The OAR insurance program has influence.
In 2017, there were 5 premature death claims. One claim involved a young Radiologist who cancelled his policy and died two weeks later. The claim was brought to the attention of the insurer by our office, and while not obligated to pay, the insurer paid the claim because the client had an OAR insurance policy.
