Help pay for out-of-pocket costs related to hospital stays

Unexpected hospital stays can lead to expenses that quickly add up. Even the best medical plans could leave you with expenses for services not covered. Hospital indemnity insurance provides you with money to help cover the costs you might not anticipate so you can focus more on recovering and less on how much the next test is going to cost.

  • You’ll receive a lump sum payment to use as you see fit
  • Pays on top of what your medical insurance covers
  • Coverage for hospital admission, stays and accident-related rehab (accidents only)2

Did you know studies show that you can spend on average $10,900 for a hospital stay in the US?3
