Accident Insurance

The truth is accidents happen, which can lead to unexpected expenses. Take comfort in knowing you have the financial support to cover these expenses.

Medical insurance is good to have, but it may not cover everything. Adding Accident Insurance coverage through your employer can help with unexpected costs such as those not covered by a medical plan like co-pays, deductibles, etc.

With Accident Insurance, the money is paid directly to you, so you have the flexibility to use it however you choose. And you can receive a benefit payment regardless of what you medical plan may cover.
