Help for the in-between time
If you are confined to a hospital, a gap insurance plan can help reduce daily stress about money, so you can focus on getting better.
How does it work?
Hospital Confinement Indemnity “Gap” insurance is designed to provide benefits that supplement existing major medical or comprehensive health insurance plans. The additional benefits help to cover out-of-pocket expenses related to coinsurance, co-pays and deductibles for inpatient and outpatient services. If you are already enrolled in a high deductible medical plan, or are thinking about switching to one, you can have peace of mind by enrolling in Gap coverage to help manage your out-of-pocket medical expenses.
There are no health questions for timely applicants, and no exclusions for pre-existing conditions. Benefits can be paid directly to you, or assigned to your provider, if you prefer. Managing routine health care costs is hard enough. Let us help you ‘fill the gap’ so you can focus on recovery.
This Hospital Confinement Indemnity “Gap” insurance policy provides limited benefits. This limited policy has some specific benefit limits and is not a medical insurance policy, a Medicare Supplement policy, or a high deductible health plan.
