Thirty percent of Your Doctor Client Injuries Not Covered?

Research shows that 30% of physician disability injuries involve musculoskeletal and connective tissue issues.1 Amazingly, many disability insurance carriers limit benefits for this type of claim to only two years. Would that be acceptable to your physician clients?

This is just one of many potential managed disability provisions found in traditional LTD policies not designed specifically for doctors. These limitations allow a carrier to prematurely terminate a claim or reduce expected benefits. This may include:

  • Mandatory rehab or part-time work
  • Ending benefits when the doctor can work 40 hours per week
  • Limiting or ending benefits when the CARRIER THINKS the doctor can work more
  • Lifetime limits on mental and nervous disabilities

A quick check of your physician clients’ policies might be in order. I’d be happy to help with an audit. Our IncomeProtect policies don’t contain many of the restrictive provisions that can harm doctors at claim time.

Give me a call and let’s discuss how our IDI-Supplement program can help get your physician clients the coverage they need—the insurance physicians expect.
