Why is having Accident Insurance so important?
Accidents can happen at any time and when you least expect them. Today’s active lifestyles may make you more susceptible, too.
Accidents can happen at any time: every 2 seconds at home … every 6 seconds at work … and every 9 seconds on the road.1 You can’t plan for accidents, but you can be better prepared financially to handle them when they happen.
Even the best medical plans may leave you with extra expenses to pay out of your own pocket.
Group Accident Insurance can help you be better prepared by providing you with a payment to use as you see fit if you experience a covered event. There are no waiting periods for coverage to begin and payment will be in addition to any other insurance you may have. This payment can help you focus more on getting back on track and less on the extra expenses an accident may bring.
This plan provides a lump sum payment for over 150 different covered events, such as these:
- Second and third degree burns
- Skin grafts
- Torn knee cartilage
- Ruptured disc
- Eye injuries
- Broken teeth
See your Disclosure Statement or Outline of Coverage/Disclosure Document for full details.
