Disability BenefitsBecoming disabled through an injury or sickness can mean a significant loss of income.

It is not unusual for a long-term disability to bring ruin to even the best of families.  We represent a number of excellent, high quality companies that will cover police or firefiighter, roofers or contractors, physicians or educators, lawyers or civil servants.  We can even provide coverage for the professional athlete or the freelance artist.  As long as there is an income and occupation to protect, we can obtain the coverage.

We will help with plan design and carrier selection once we have all of the pertinent information.  If you know what you and your client are looking to accomplish, that makes everyone's job easier.  If not, we can put the case together for you and discuss the merits of each carrier selected.  After all, unlike life insurance where you only die once, with disability, your clients are purchasing the words of the contract.

Do you have clients that suffer from a health condition?  Have any of your clients been rejected for disability insurance?  We can help!  We represent companies that specialize in what are considered sub-standard risks.  Among these are mental and nervous disorders (as long as there has not been a disability, hospitalization, or claim in recent history), some cancers, and other uninsurable health conditions.  If your client has recently been declined, please contact us and we will be happy to discuss the case.

All medical and personal information that is shared or provided to us is kept in the strictest of confidence.  Even when we do a verbal preliminary check with an insurer, pertinent information (like name, social security number, address, etc.) are left out of the conversation.  Only when we do a written preliminary or formal application does the insurer receive all of the information.

The important coverage areas that we offer our brokers include:

  • Individual Disability Income
  • Business Disability Income
  • Business Overhead Expense
  • Key Person Disability
  • Disability Buy Out
We look forward to helping your clients with this vital protection. We look forward to being of service!

Extended Care Planning

Extended Care Planning
There is a good chance that some of your clients may need to pay for home health care, assisted living, or a nursing home, some day.  At one point in their lives, more than half of the U.S. population will require some form of long-term care.

Most seniors are concerned about financial security during retirement.  Therefore, you owe it to your client, their spouse, significant other and/or those whom they love, to protect them from what could be the greatest threat to their financial security -- the cost of long-term care.

We know that no one wants to go into a "home".  That is why we provide policies that insure the cost of the nursing home only, home care only or, the most frequently purchased plans that protect at home and/or in a facility.

You may contact us for more information and quotes from some of the oldest, strongest, and most quoted companies in the businesses.

Do not overlook your wealthy clients ... those whose estates are valued at over $7,000,000 for a family or about half of that for an individual.  We can help you with the planning and product placement for your large case clients.  Contact David about these cases and for an in-depth conversation about planning for the wealthy client.

Critical Illness

Critical Illness InsuranceCritical Illness Insurance

Critical illness insurance is medical insurance that pays a lump-sum benefit upon diagnosis of a critical illness or condition. Critical illness insurance payments help clients' avoid the financial strain a major illness can create so they can focus on their recovery. It gives them the freedom to:

  • Get the treatment they want
  • Spend time with family and friends
  • Keep their home and other assets

Determine Your Need

Traditional health insurance is valuable, but often limiting. Because medical treatment is more advanced than ever, it's also more expensive. People today often experience financial hardship because of the medical expenses their health and disability insurance don't cover. Critical illness insurance could be a strong supplement to other health insurance. Determine if your clients need critical illness by learning what it pays for that other plans don't.

Employee Benefits

Employee BenefitsGroup insurance or any Employee Benefit, is based on the law of large numbers.  This does not mean that you have to have hundreds or even thousands of employees before excellent protection is available.  We can provide the groups you represent with group health, life, short-term disability, long-term disability, dental, vision benefits, long term care and extended care plans. Many of the above can also be obtained on a voluntary benefit basis.

We can provide employers with two or thousands of employees with the same excellent coverage.  In addition, if your company(s) only need to find a claims administrator or a stop-loss carrier, we facilitate those services.

Although size does matter, we at Insurance Specialties, Inc. have guaranteed issue coverage for your group.  However, the size of the group will determine the amounts of coverage that are guaranteed to be issued.

Do not let the size of your clients deter you in finding the best coverage available.  We make this promise, if we do not represent the company that will provide the protection, we will refer you to one that will.  After all, that is what Integrity, Service, and Ingenuity represent.  Please review some of the Carriers we represent and contact us if we can help

Short Term Medical

Short Term MedicalIs your client between jobs?  Has there been a recent layoff?  Did he or she just graduate from college or high school and is no longer eligible for his or her parents' health plan?  Are they looking for a low-cost alternative to traditional health insurance? This is why you should consider short-term medical insurance for these clients.

We can provide protection from 30-days to 3-years.  If you are certain they will obtain insurance within 6 months, we have a single pay option.  If you think they might only need the coverage for 3 months, but want the option of carrying it for up to 6 months or longer, we have monthly pay options.

No matter which direction you select, there are only a handful of questions to answer and the coverage is theirs. Please keep one thing in mind; pre-existing conditions are never covered on short-term medical plans.  This is because there is no in-depth medical underwriting.  So, if you have a serious medical condition, or are worried about a particular problem being covered, make certain you contact us before making a decision.
