Back To Employee Benefits
They’re called accidents for a reason. They can come out of nowhere, they aren’t done on purpose, and they cause an inconvenience – and unexpected bills. Accident insurance can provide a lump sum benefit to employees so they have a financial cushion while they work to regain their health.
Provide the Protection They Need with Accident Coverage
While major medical can cover some of the costs related to an accident, employees are often left with extra-out-of-pocket expenses. Accident coverage provides a payment directly to employees that they can use as needed. There are no calendar-year maximums, so employees can receive benefits for multiple accidents ─ even recurring ones ─ over the life of their policy. And since this coverage is funded by the employee, you can provide this valuable coverage at little or no cost to your company.
