“The focus on the essential work of medical professionals and the need to protect their income when the unexpected strikes have never been greater,” said Matt Montminy, head of product and strategy for Group Benefits at The Hartford. “For nearly 30 years, The Hartford has provided specialized income protection to employees of medical groups. We are committed to serving physicians and their practices with products and services customized to their unique needs.”

ProtectPro customers have access to The Hartford’s dedicated underwriting, customer service and claims teams who specialize in serving medical groups. In addition to flexible plan designs, new optional benefits include:

  • Specialty coverage for nurse practitioners, physician assistants, certified registered nurse anesthetists and other non-physician providers that protects them based on what they do on the job at their medical group;
  • A student loan credit benefit to help defray the costs of student loans when a covered employee has partially returned to work while receiving long-term disability benefits; and
  • A medical premium supplement benefit that helps cover all or part of a claimant’s COBRA Medical Premium while receiving long-term disability benefits.

“As employment for non-physician medical professionals is projected to grow1, the right benefits package can help ensure these employees are protected and can help medical practices attract and retain talent,” Montminy added.

The Hartford is a leading provider of employee benefits products and services, including leave management, group life and disability insurance, as well as other voluntary products
