Who is the provider?
How can this help me?
Most families don’t budget for the costs associated with accidents. When an accident does occur, the last thing on your mind is the charges accumulating while at the emergency room:
These costs can add up fast. Most families have medical insurance that will cover a majority of the expenses. But, what about the out-of-pocket medical expenses, such as lost wages an employee or spouse/domestic partner loses when out of work or staying home to care for an injured family member? You hope that an accident never happens, but at some point you very well may take a trip to your local emergency room. If that time comes, wouldn’t it be nice to have an insurance plan that pays you a benefit regardless of any other insurance you have? Accident insurance does just that, providing benefits to cover the costs associated with unexpected accidents.
