Definition of Disability

MGIS defines disability based on the actual procedures each doctor regularly performed for twelve months before the onset of disability.

The MGIS claims team determines “actual procedures” by obtaining billable procedure codes from the policy holder, including CPT, CDT/ADA, modifiers, and codes relevant to the individual claimant.

Coverage for Veterinarians

According to the AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association), the starting salary for Vets has been rising every year since 2014.2 As a result, many veterinarians have growing income-protection needs—similar to those of other healthcare professionals.

Typical group LTD contracts do not address these specialized income protection needs. Disability Guard for Doctors™ was designed for veterinarians and includes key coverage features aligned with the IDI coverage many veterinarians already have.

Pre-Disability Earnings that Consider Multiple Earning Types

While many Americans collect only a salary from their employer, healthcare professionals often receive bonuses and K-1 (partnership) income if they are an owner of a practice. Many group LTD policies provide income replacement for base salary only, disregarding these other major income sources.

The higher the pre-disability earnings (PDE), the higher the monthly benefit. (Subject to the policy’s monthly max benefit). Correctly defining PDE will also improve the claims process.
