More information about our Insurance Programs

The Doctors Manitoba Insurance Program

Doctors Manitoba has designed a not-for-profit insurance program for physicians, by physicians – created with your needs in mind. Our staff invest the time, do the research and negotiate to make sure the plans we offer are a great fit and value for you and your family. 

We are also here for you if you need help with any facet of applying for coverage or making claims. Just contact Doctors Manitoba and we’ll be happy to help you through the process. And if you have a conflict with an insurer that isn’t backing a claim you feel is valid, we can support you by being your advocate in navigating the claim. Think of us as your personal insurance claims concierge! We are here for you. 

Our commitment to our members is sincere, and we are dedicated to helping protect you, your income and your family. These insurance plans are one of the ways we are doing this. 

Giving back to you 

Our insurance plans are not-for-profit, meaning your premiums are kept low, and if there is a surplus, that profit is returned to you as a credit on next year’s premiums to make your costs drop even lower. 

Strength in numbers

More than 3,000 members currently participate in our insurance plans, which offer life, disability income, office overhead, accidental death and dismemberment, critical illness, and extended health benefits for physicians. We can help you build the plan that works best for your family and provides the protection you need. 

Coverage for medical residents

PARIM provides its medical resident members with a compulsory group insurance program consisting of life, disability income and accidental death and dismemberment insurance.
