Life & Disability Insurance


AVMA | LIFE Veterinarian Inspired Coverage

AVMA LIFE offers veterinarian-inspired coverage for all stages of your life. Most employer-sponsored insurance plans end when you change employers. However, your AVMA LIFE plans are portable. AVMA LIFE plans include life insurance, disability income, a Basic Protection Package with rabies prophylaxis benefit, hospital indemnity, professional overhead expense and more, all underwritten by New York Life Insurance Company. AVMA LIFE also makes available a variety of medical insurance plans for AVMA member veterinarians through its Insurance Exchange/Marketplace.
