Life Insurance

Basic Life Insurance 

Life insurance, provided by The Hartford, pays a lump-sum to your beneficiary(ies) to help meet expenses in the event of your death. Basic life includes an additional multiple of your salary for accidental death. Basic life insurance is mandatory and cannot be declined. Benefits will be reduced to 50 percent at age 75.

Supplemental Life Insurance

Supplemental life insurance is additional life insurance that can be purchased by you for 1, 2 or 3 times your annual salary ($600,000 maximum applies). Supplemental life insurance is available for staff, department directors and physicians. The Hartford is allowing anyone with coverage already or those who previously had not elected coverage to get up to $200,000 in supplemental life insurance without Evidence of Insurability (EOI). All other situations will be required to submit an Evidence of Insurability (medical questionnaire) and your coverage will be approved or denied. The Hartford will send you the Evidence of Insurability form to complete and return to them. You will be notified of their decision in writing at your home address. Rates remain the same in 2021.

NOTE:  If you were previously denied or failed to complete the previously requested EOI form from 10/1/2018 to present, you will be required to complete EOI on Supplemental Life Insurance on ANY election or increase for the 2021 Plan year.

Employee coverage levels are listed below at $25,000; $50,000; $100,000 and $200,000.
