Stay on stable financial ground, even when an accident has you off your feet.
Accident insurance can help minimize the financial impact if you, your spouse,1 or your child experiences an accident.
How does it work?
If you experience a covered accident, you will receive a cash benefit according to a benefits schedule. You may use this money however you wish—to pay for prescriptions or other out-of-pocket expenses, like crutches, that may not be covered by health insurance. The cost of the insurance is determined by the benefit amounts available with your plan, and the amount you receive depends on your injury.
Accident insurance pays cash benefits for injuries, such as fractures and dislocations, and it also pays benefits for the care of those injuries, such as benefits for ambulance rides, emergency room visits, and outpatient office visits. It also pays accidental death and dismemberment benefits for a loss due to a covered accidental injury or death.
The full list of covered benefits can be found in your plan details.
1. If permitted by the Employer’s employee benefit plan and not prohibited by state law, or if the group’s situs state is Oregon, the term “spouse” in this benefit includes any individual who is either recognized as a spouse, a registered domestic partner, or a partner in a civil union, or otherwise accorded the same rights as a spouse.
Accident Insurance is a limited benefit policy. It provides accident coverage only and does not provide basic hospital, basic medical, or major medical insurance. This coverage does not constitute comprehensive health insurance (often referred to as “major medical coverage”) and does not satisfy the requirement for Minimum Essential Coverage under the Affordable Care Act. Failing to maintain Minimum Essential Coverage may result in a tax penalty.
The certificate and its riders have exclusions and limitations that may affect any benefits payable. Benefits payable are subject to all terms and conditions of the certificate. The policy, certificate, and any rider, if applicable, may not be available in all states.
