We reviewed and considered various aspects of Life Insurance products including the below:
We looked for life insurance products that provide coverage for injury or sickness related
to past sicknesses or injuries, as long as they are disclosed and accepted by the insurer at
the time of application.
We looked for life insurance products that offered a 12 or 24 month terminal illness
We looked for life insurance products that provided the ability to increase cover based on
the occurrence of a defined event without the need to undergo further medical underwriting.
Some life insurers in the industry have adopted wording that provides a guarantee to
recognise other more advanced tests or treatments when assessing a claim. This was
considered as part of our selection criteria and ensures that defined Trauma Cover medical
conditions remain up to date should medical advancements occur.
Different life insurance providers offer different discounts or packaging options depending
on the type of cover taken. These were considered within our selection criteria.
We considered turnaround times for applications along with financial and medical
requirements (forming part of the underwriting process) at time of application.
We have created a convenient guide which highlights some of the risks you need to consider at different
stages in your professional medical career and personal life, and the insurance options available

Insurance is even more important."
Dr. Jing Cen Mao-Tang
Since 1893, when a small group of doctors formed a mutual, Avant had one simple objective
in mind, to support doctors.
Over the years, and through our in-depth understanding of doctors, we developed and
offered products that are designed with doctors in mind. From professional indemnity,
health insurance, technology, life insurance, lending and financial advice.
Life insurance offering
So when we developed a life insurance product in 2017, we ensured it included features
and benefits we believed doctors would value.
Over the past five years, we continued to adapt and reinvent our products to keep up with
changes in the insurance markets and changes to the regulatory regime. But always
ensuring that the products’ features and benefits were of value to doctors.
The Doctors Life Insurance Selection Tool
That’s why from October 2021 we have changed our life offering. We moved from one product
offering to providing doctors a choice of products from a range of life insurance
providers, whose life policies, features and benefits we think doctors will value.
We’ve done the hard work for you. By searching the market for providers that offer
products that we think doctors will value and added these to the LIST. Making it easy
for doctors to compare, select and apply for the products they want at no additional
fees to them.
The Doctors Life Insurance Selection Tool is an online comparison tool that puts a
curated list of suitable providers at your fingertips. All you need do, is go to our
website, enter some information, compare the policies including their features and price
and consider if one of them is right for you.
