Add accident insurance coverage to help offset costs that may not be covered under your employer’s existing medical plan.
Accident insurance through your employer may include benefits for:
- Injuries: fractures, dislocations, concussions, lacerations, eye injuries, torn knee cartilage, ruptured discs, second and third degree burns
- Medical services and treatments: ambulance, emergency care, therapy services, medical testing (including x-rays, MRIs, CT scans), medical appliances and certain types of surgeries
- Hospitalization: hospital admission, confinement and inpatient rehab after an accident 2
For complete plan details, talk to your company’s benefits administrator.
Yes, you can use your benefit payment as you see fit. Use it to help cover your household bills, medical insurance deductibles, copayments and more.

Accidents can happen any time, to anyone and when you least expect them – and they can be costly. Even quality medical plans can leave you with extra expenses to pay. Costs like plan deductibles, copays for doctor visits and extra costs for out-of-network care can add up fast. Having the financial support you may need when the time comes means less worry for you and your family.
