Dental/Vision Plans

We can offer dental and vision through employer groups often with a bundled discount if other benefit products are purchased. We can also offer a stand-alone plan for individuals and families.

Dental Plans

You have many options to decide what coverage you need. There are DPPO’s, DHMO’s, Indemnity Plans, and Discount Plans that give you access to specific networks and save you money with negotiated rates. Some plans have waiting periods, while others increase coverage benefits over a 3-yearperiod, have roll-over amounts from year to year, as well as orthodontia or implant benefits. All dental plans have an annual maximum the plan will pay. The higher the maximum benefit, the more the premium

Vision Plans

Vision insurance is generally supplemental to other types of medical insurance policies. Stand-alone Vision Plans help offset the costs of routine checkups, frames, lenses and contacts that are prescribed. There are also discounts for other in-network covered services and on lasik at participating providers.

Dental and Vision Care Riders

Dental and vision care can also be purchased as an add-on, also known as a rider with many health care policies. This is generally less expensive than purchasing a separate dental and vision plan, but may offer slightly less coverage.

Employer groups can offer dental and vision plans along with group life and disability to round out their benefit package for their employees. They can be contributory (employer helps pay some of the cost) or voluntary(employee pays entire cost). When these benefits are bundled together we can typically shop them and get better premiums.

Disability Insurance

If you’re suddenly unable to earn a paycheck due to illness or an accident, Short Term Disability insurance can replace a portion of your income during the initial weeks of your disability due to accident or sickness. These can be purchased as an employer benefit package or stand-alone if you are self-employed for two years with steady proven income.

You can also purchase a Long Term Disability Policy that will cover a portion of your income (around 60-70%) when you have become injured or seriously ill. (It is different from worker’s compensation in that is is not for work-related injuries or illnesses). Long Term Disability allows you to know if there is a permanent disability and allows time to apply and get approved for disability benefits which will be paid as income. After 24 months of receiving disability income benefits you may become eligible for under 65 Medicare.

Long Term Care Insurance

Sometimes, due to serious onset of disease or a sudden accident, a person cannot perform Acts of Daily Living (ADL’s), such as bathing, dressing, shopping, cooking, cleaning, toileting, etc. If that were to happen to you, your health insurance is not designed to pay for or take care of such things indefinitely. You may be interested in purchasing a longer lasting plan for your care needs. We have several available. Some can be for home care assistance and others can be more expensive to cover institutional care. Some of the new IUL’s (Indexed Universal Life Insurance Policies) have riders you can purchase to cover in the event of Cancer, Critical Illness, Disability, Long Term Care, or Terminal Illness allowing for access to lump sum cash when you need it by reducing the face amounts of the death benefit.
