The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America Introduces Provider Choice, Individual DI Protection with Enhanced Flexibility and Customization Options

The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America introduced Provider Choice, individual DI protection with enhanced flexibility and customization options. Provider Choice offers three simple policy packages, making it easier for insurance professionals to find the right coverage for their customers, based on their needs and budget. Each package includes a robust base policy with hospice care and provisions for serious illnesses such as cancer, stroke, and heart attack. Every base policy can then be customized with riders, or options, that address customers’ unique needs. Provider Choice offers riders that can cover retirement plan contributions, partial disability, and options to help keep pace with inflation. A Student Loan Benefit rider, which is unique to Guardian policies, will cover repayment of student loan debt, typically a significant financial commitment for highly trained professionals with advanced degrees. Professionals such as physicians and dentists can further tailor their DI coverage by selecting the True Own-Occupation option. If disabled, they can choose to work in another capacity, within or outside of their field, sometimes even in their own practice, and not forfeit their disability benefits. Provider Choice also offers a unique enhancement just for physicians. Guardian has crafted a new path to qualify for benefits based on the physician’s pre-disability source of earnings. The policy is non-cancellable and guaranteed renewable, so consumers can lock in the policy’s benefits and cost at the time of purchase. Customers also can choose to increase protection in the future with no medical underwriting, among many other options and enhancements.
