QMA signs insurance agreement with MD Physician Services

MD now offers a complete line of life and health insurance solutions to
QMA/CMA physician members in Quebec

OTTAWA, April 19 /CNW/ - The Quebec Medical Association and MD Physician Services (MD) announce the signature of an accord, in partnership with the Vigilis Group. Effective today, MD Physician Services (MD) becomes the distributor of QMA group life and health insurance solutions to members of the Quebec Medical Association, and Canadian Medical Association members residing in Quebec.

As a result of this new alliance, eligible physicians will benefit from:

  • More insurance options: Access to a greater range of group and individual insurance products than ever before—including life, disability, critical illness, long-term care, healthcare and dental coverage, wealth and tax protection.

  • Greater convenience: Ability to consolidate all financial and practice needs through nine MD regional offices in the Province of Quebec.

"This agreement allows the QMA to provide greater value to members," said Claudette Duclos, Executive Director of the Quebec Medical Association (QMA). "As MD is focused on anticipating and meeting the needs of physicians as much as we are, it is a pleasure to announce this news to our membership."

In the Province of Quebec, over 9,100 physicians are members of the QMA (all QMA members also automatically become members of the Canadian Medical Association). As a value-add, members receive access to MD Physician Services for objective financial and wealth management advice.

"Physicians are busy providing excellent medical services to their patients and as such are looking for an organization like MD to address all of their financial needs in a comprehensive and integrated way," said Brian Peters, President and Chief Executive Officer of MD Physician Services. "This agreement is fantastic news to physicians in Quebec, because they can now access wealth management advice, investments, banking, estate and trust services, and insurance through one provider."
