Features & Benefits
Benefits up to $4,000,000

This plan allows you to select the amount of term life insurance coverage that best fits the financial needs of your family. As an eligible physician, you and your eligible spouse or domestic partner can each apply for coverage from $100,000 up to $4,000,000.

Because this is level term coverage, the benefit amount you secure remains level for the entire term of your coverage.

Level term period - rates guaranteed for 10, 15 or 20 years

You select the level period that makes sense for you and your family's personal protection needs - 10 years, 15 years or 20 years. The rate you are approved for is the rate you keep for the entire level period. There are no annual increases during your chosen level period, guaranteed.

How Rates are Determined

This plan's rates are based on various factors including your lifestyle, health history, and the company's underwriting guidelines. Four (4) rate classes are offered:

  • Preferred Plus rates are this plan's lowest rates. They're designed for physicians who have not used tobacco in any form during the past 12 months and whose lifestyle and health history meet the Preferred Plus underwriting guidelines.
  • Preferred rates are for physicians who have not used tobacco in any form during the past 12 months and whose lifestyle and health history meet the company's Preferred underwriting guidelines.
  • Standard rates are for individuals who have not used tobacco in the past 12 months.
  • Tobacco rates are for individuals who have used tobacco in the past 12 months. Rates for tobacco users are very competitive.

Note: In Montana, females pay male rates.

Up to $1,000,000 in "Living Benefits"

You can receive up to 75% of your basic benefit amount - up to a $1,000,000 maximum - to use any way you wish if you are diagnosed by your attending physician as having no longer than 24 months to live. In addition, your premium payments will be waived during the 12-month period following payment of this benefit. This added feature is provided at no additional cost to you. "Living Benefit" payments are deducted from your total death benefit. Please note: "Living Benefits" may be taxable. Please consult with your personal tax advisor for details.

Optional Features to Tailor Your Coverage

Waiver of Premium

If you become totally disabled after the effective date of coverage, before age 60, and the disability lasts for at least six consecutive months, your premium payments will be waived up to age 65. To take advantage of this option, you must apply and be approved for coverage before age 56. Coverage for this option terminates at age 60.

Accidental Death and Dismemberment Coverage

This optional coverage provides additional insurance protection equal to your basic life insurance benefit (up to a $1,000,000 maximum) if death is caused by a covered accident. In addition, benefits are payable for loss of limbs or loss of use of limbs, or loss of sight due to a covered accident. Coverage for this option terminates at age 75.

$25,000 Child Coverage

For an additional $60 a year, you or your spouse (but not both) can cover each of your eligible dependent children with $25,000 of life insurance protection and $25,000 Accidental Death & Dismemberment. Eligible children include all dependent children from 14 days through age 26. Dependent child coverage is subject to state variations.
