What products and services does Team Income Defense provide?
We provide comprehensive disability coverages, simple to complex life insurance, annuities and estate planning coordination.
Why is it important for physicians to have this coverage in place?
Physicians have a unique profession that exposes them to risks every day – both on and off the job. These programs allow our members and their families to continue to live the lifestyle they are accustomed to if the member should suffer from a serious illness, injury or loss of life. When it comes to health insurance, we can help make sure our clients have needed coverage as they move towards retirement - whether it’s a Medicare Supplement, Advantage Plan or Part D for your prescriptions.
Tell us a little about your background and why you do what you do?
I love people and enjoy researching what will make people’s lives easier. I have been passionate about providing that assistance for more than 40 years. The joy of seeing plans work over their lifetime brings me great satisfaction and further emphasizes paying it forward.
What’s different about WisMed Assure?
WisMed Assure believes in teamwork for the client. We research and confer with others, when necessary, to find suitable coverages and will locate representatives in other states or companies we don’t represent to give our members the best benefits possible. WisMed Assure works with several companies with programs designed specifically for the needs of the medical community while treating you like a member of their family.
WisMed Assure is a service of the Wisconsin Medical Society. Our revenue supports the fulfillment of the Society’s mission to improve the health of the people of Wisconsin by supporting and strengthening physicians' ability to practice high-quality patient care in a changing environment.
What’s your favorite client story?
My very favorite story is about client in her 70s whose husband was in a long-term care facility with Alzheimer’s. She was left to handle all their assets alone because she didn’t want their children to have to deal with it. When we met, she was very apprehensive about sharing their information. We rewrote her plans several times as she became more comfortable working together. She had so many questions and it was enjoyable to learn about her family and wishes. As of today, she is like a mom to me, her children are so relieved, her grandchildren and great grandchildren look at me as family…someone who is always looking out for them as a financial partner for life.
