Basic life insurance

Basic life insurance

Allscripts provides basic life coverage at no cost to you:

  • Benefit amount: 2 x your annual salary, rounded to the next higher $1,000, up to $1,000,000.
    Evidence of Insurability (EOI): EOI may be required for reinstatements if required under the terms of the Certificate of Insurance.
  • Imputed income: Premiums paid by Allscripts for basic life insurance coverage amounts over $50,000 are considered non-monetary compensation, or “imputed income,” and per IRS guidelines, must be included as taxable income to you since imputed income is the value of a benefit you are receiving. The IRS establishes the cost per month for each additional $1,000 of coverage (above $50,000) based on age.
  • Coverage begins: If you are actively working, you are automatically enrolled in this coverage. If you are not actively at work on your hire or eligibility date, your coverage will become effective on the day you are actively at work

Your basic life insurance amount is based on your age and eligible earnings as of January 1 of the plan year (or as of your new hire/benefit eligibility date, if applicable). Your coverage will stay the same through December 31 of the plan year. Your eligible earnings include base pay and commissions paid in the preceding 12-month period.

  • Evidence of Insurability (EOI): EOI is required for any coverage amount greater than $500,000; other situations such as elective increases or late application requires EOI to become insured for any amount. Review the Certificate of Insurance for more information.

What is evidence of insurability (EOI)?

Some Voluntary Life Insurance options require that you provide proof of good health before coverage can be offered. Evidence of Insurability, or EOI, is an assessment that provides proof of health as determined by the plan. For Allscripts, the EOI application is a medical questionnaire: it’s fairly simple and usually only takes about 15 minutes to complete.
