Doctors and Surgeons cover: Sabbatical Break cover

Our sabbatical break cover allows your client to take an extended break (up to two years) away from their role to study or work abroad. As long as your client continues to pay their premiums, we'll treat them as if they were working in their normal role, and they'll keep their normal level of cover, own occupation and definition of sickness.

Your client won't need to tell us they're taking a sabbatical, they just need to be able to prove:

  1. The sabbatical was approved by their employer


  1. Their job was kept open for them

Please note your client is unable to benefit from sabbatical break cover within the first 12 months of their policy starting.
