Bright Grey enhances IP plan

Bright Grey has enhanced its income protection plan to include a rehabilitation service provided by Health and Case Management Limited.

The rehabilitation service, which will work alongside Bright Grey’s existing ‘helping hand’ initiative, will assign each claimant with a HCML rehabilitation case manager should they need one.

The case manager will plan a programme of rehabilitation and recovery to help the person return as close as possible to their pre-injury or illness levels of health and fitness.

Bright Grey head of product development and technical support Ian Smart says: “The rehabilitation service will benefit those people who require additional support in order to get their life back on track.”

Bright Grey has also increased its maximum benefit from £75,000 to £150,000 a year, increased the maximum benefit for house persons and those who are not receiving a salary from £12,000 to £16,800 and increased its maximum cover increase option from £3,000 per annum to £8,000 per year.

Applicants can now include benefits in kind when assessing their gross annual earnings.
