A Doctors Council contract contains many provisions and protections. One important part of our Doctors Council contract is benefits received through the Doctors Council Benefit Plan, Welfare Fund or Annuity Fund. These benefits are provided to eligible members and dependent family members at no cost to you and are funded through contributions made to the Plan / Fund by your Employer as stated in our Doctors Council contract.
