Professional overhead expense insurance

September 11, 2019

Professional overhead expense (POE) insurance works with the disability insurance benefit – if you are disabled, POE will cover your overhead and business expenses for a period of time until you can return to practice or for that same period of time if you cannot.

Insurance is a promise. Here's why.

July 10, 2019

Insurance, on a fundamental level, is simply a promise. Once you have set up insurance, insurance companies, in exchange for your premium, pool all the money together based on statistics and actuarial calculations, and they promise to pay out benefits when one of the covered situations happen.
