Locum Tenens Physicians: Get the Insurance Benefits You Deserve

As an independent locum tenens physician, you enjoy many benefits. Due to the shortage of physicians in Texas, your skills are in great demand. You get to decide when and where you want to work. And you don’t have to wait around for insurance reimbursements to get paid.

Yet despite all these advantages, being a locum tenens physician is not without its challenges. One of the most daunting is having to provide your own benefits. Unlike employed physicians who have a robust employee benefits package, as an independent contractor you are left to find your own coverage.

Finding Health Insurance Coverage

Health insurance is the main concern of most locum tenens physicians. If you are not covered under your spouse’s policy, there are other ways to get major medical coverage. The first is through the annual health insurance open enrollment period that runs every year between November 1 to December 15.

This year, due to the impact of the pandemic, there is a second open enrollment window from February 15 to May 15, 2021. To shop for coverage for yourself and your family, visit Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas to review your options and enroll online. You can also contact a TMA Insurance Trust advisor for assistance.

How TMA Insurance Trust Can Help

If you just left a situation where you had employer coverage, you may have another option. If you lost employer coverage within the past 60 days, you may qualify for a special enrollment period. If you qualify, please contact a TMA Insurance Trust health insurance advisor for a free consultation. But please be advised that you must act quickly. Once the 60-day deadline passes, you may have to wait until the next open enrollment to sign up for major medical coverage.

Even if you have already secured health insurance, TMA Insurance Trust can still help you. Talk with our advisors about how accident insurance, critical illness insurance and supplemental hospital plans can help you cover some of the deductibles, copays and coverage limits that are common with many of today’s health plans.
