Berkshire’s True Competitive Advantage
While the true own-occupation definition of total disability and medical specialty language is probably the number one reason so many surgeons turn to Berkshire for their disability insurance protection, the Graded Lifetime Indemnity for Total Disability Rider 1 and the Residual Disability Benefit Rider 1 are almost equally as important.
While many carriers offer benefits to age 65 or 67, Berkshire also offers you the ability to receive disability benefits for the rest of your life so long as you remain continuously totally disabled if you have the Graded Lifetime Indemnity for Total Disability Rider 1. When you review a disability insurance quote from our agency, you will see the Graded Lifetime Indemnity for Total Disability Rider listed on the Proposed Coverage Report with its premium broken out.
The Residual Disability Benefit Rider available with ProVider Plus policy is also one of the most comprehensive residual riders available today. You may end up totally disabled, but many claims start or end with a residual claim. If you can still perform the material and substantial duties of your medical specialty, but have an income loss of 15% or more because of a sickness or injury, you will be eligible for residual disability benefits. Most of Berkshire’s competitors also require a loss of time or duties to pay a residual claim, ProVider Plus’ Residual Disability Benefit Rider only requires a loss of income.
The Residual Disability Benefit Rider also includes a recovery provision that continues to pay benefits for up to the full benefit period should you continue to suffer at least a 15% loss of income solely due to your injury or sickness, where most competitors stop residual payments once you are back to work full time. This means ProVider Plus is designed to do more to assist with your financial recovery even after you have physically recovered.
