Disability Insurance Roulette with Edward O. Comitz:
Dentistry Uncensored with Howard Farran

Founding member Ed Comitz recently sat down with Howard Farran, DDS, MBA of Farran Media to discuss the issues dentists face when filing “own occupation” disability claims.

Dentists are uniquely susceptible to slowly progressive, degenerative disabling conditions (such as musculoskeletal conditions like degenerative disc disease) due to the physical stressors of the job. Dentists’ claims are also often targeted for denial because of high benefit amounts, particularly if they have a condition that is difficult to prove up with objective medical evidence and testing.

During the podcast, Ed addressed several topics, including:

  • Why are most of your clients dentists?
  • When am I “sick enough” to file a claim?
  • What is a true own occupation policy? Are there different types of own occupation policies?
  • What should I expect if I file a claim?
