Benefit payments can be used for any type of expense but are most commonly used to pay medical deductibles and co-pays, child care, house cleaning, and everyday expenses like utilities and groceries.

Critical Illness

Critical Illness policies pay a lump-sum benefit if the employee is diagnosed with a covered illness or disease. For group coverage, Critical illness insurance is most often offered as guaranteed-issue that does not require employees to provide health information to qualify. Limits are provided in different levels, typically between $10,000 – $30,000 and multiple covered illness/disease categories can be selected.

Hospital Indemnity

Hospital indemnity pays a daily benefit if the employee has a covered stay in a hospital, critical care unit or rehabilitation facility. The benefit amount is determined based upon the type of facility and the number of days stayed. Like the other coverages, this can provide significant financial protection from high deductibles or out-of-pocket maximums.

Example:

Delivery of child with a 3 day hospital stay

How Hospital Indemnity insurance helps you:

$200/day Hospital Confinement Benefits

For Accident, Critical Illness and Hospital Indemnity coverage, rates are typically lower when purchased through the employer and premium amounts can be payroll deducted, simplifying enrollment and administration for employees.
