When accidents occur, even people with health insurance coverage will often be surprised with special emergency room charges, ambulance bills, and other deductibles and co-pays that are their own responsibility.
Special benefit features of accident insurance include direct cash payments, coverage for ambulance service, including air ambulances, and hospitalization benefits that pay in addition to any other policy.
Who is Accident Insurance for?
Families who have children. Kids tend to be accident prone, and trips to the emergency room can become very expensive.
People who have chosen alternatives to the high cost of a traditional major medical policy, but would be very open to a low-cost accident plan, especially in conjunction with a “high deductible” health savings account.
Because of their low cost, accident plans are the perfect answer to the sticker shock increasingly inherent with other health policies.
