Take the sting out of hospital bills

March 2014

Whether you’d like to believe it or not, everyone is susceptible to injuries and illnesses that could potentially require a hospital stay. If you have ever been in this boat, then you know how lofty hospital care expenses can be.

Even after major medical insurance is taken into account, the cost of health care keeps rising. And, just one visit to the hospital could wreak havoc on a family’s finances.

More than 43 percent of employees claim they are ill prepared to pay out-of-pocket expenses in the case of a serious illness or accident.1 What’s more, many individuals are now facing larger co-pays and deductibles as the costs associated with inpatient hospital services increase. While worrisome, you can help your employees protect themselves.

Hospital indemnity insurance helps alleviate the stress and pain of unexpected financial burdens by providing pre-determined benefits that are paid regardless of your other insurance policies.
