Accidents happen when you least expect them. Every day we are exposed to situations that could result in an accident. Each year, millions of people are injured and survive. In fact, more than 3 million people are hospitalized, and 27 million people are treated in emergency departments and released.1 Even with health insurance, the extra costs from an accidental injury can really add up and may leave you in a financial hole.
Consider the affect a common accident may have on your financial picture. Could you afford thousands in out-of-pocket medical costs? What if you didn’t have a primary health insurance plan? Because you never know when you or someone in your family could get hurt in an accident, an accident insurance policy is a helpful and sensible precaution.
What does accident insurance cover?
The cost of medical care, especially hospital stays, can quickly add up. Hospitalization insurance, also sometimes called Hospital Insurance or Hospital Indemnity, can help you prepare your budget for unexpected medical costs resulting from a hospital stay.
Why should I purchase hospital insurance?

What is critical illness insurance?
Critical Illness insurance, also referred to as Critical Care insurance or Critical Illness coverage, provides a lump-sum cash benefit to help cover expenses associated with a qualifying serious illness.
Critical Illness can strike at any time. We’ve all heard stories of friends or family members who have been affected by a serious illness. What we don’t hear is how the financial strain may also have a major impact during this trying time.
A primary health insurance plan may cover some health care costs, but oftentimes the patient will face other challenges such as paying everyday living expenses while out of work. That’s when a Critical Illness plan can come into play.

Fixed indemnity plans
Hospital and doctor fixed indemnity insurance is also often called fixed-benefit insurance or fee for service insurance. That’s because this type of insurance pays you a set—that is, fixed—amount of money for specific services covered by the plan.
Unexpected medical bills can disrupt even the healthiest home budgets.
A fixed indemnity is much different than a major medical insurance plan.
A regular major medical health insurance plan pays for all or a percentage of covered expenses after you meet a deductible, pay a copay or reach a certain amount of out-of-pocket costs. Put simply, for qualified expenses, in most cases, you pay first, and then your insurance company covers the rest.
A fixed indemnity plan offers limited benefits and is meant to supplement a more traditional health insurance plan. Indemnity insurance essentially flips how you are paid when compared to major medical insurance. You are paid a predetermined amount for certain health care expenses you have incurred, and then you are on your own for the rest.
