Accident Expense Plus®

Supplemental Insurance

Case Studies

  • Maria, 33, Graphic Designer
  • A broken leg won't stop this leap into self-employment*  
    Leaving the corporate world to start her own graphic design business was a big step for Maria. One of her biggest concerns was medical insurance – could she find affordable coverage?

    Maria purchased a major medical plan with a low premium – but a $5,000 deductible. To help cover her high deductible and coinsurance costs, she supplemented the policy with an Accident Expense Plus® plan. She opted for the $7,000 per calendar year accident benefit with a $250 deductible.

    Three months later, Maria fell, breaking her leg in two places. Her injury required an emergency room visit, surgery to reset the bone, three months in a cast and six weeks of physical therapy. 

    The medical bills could have derailed her business plans, but because Maria had an Accident Expense Plus® policy, her only expense was the $250 deductible. Broken leg or not, Maria kept marching steadily toward her goals.

  • Jack, 16, Rising Basketball Star
  • Out-of-network specialist is an affordable part of the team* 

    John and Samantha were proud parents–their son Jack was an outstanding student who was also becoming a highly-recruited basketball star. 

    When he fractured his wrist in the playoffs, the family's doctor referred him to a specialist outside their major medical carrier's network. Thanks to the family's Accident Expense Plus® policy, John and Samantha were promptly reimbursed for their out-of-network expenses and received additional benefits for the treatment and physical therapy. 

    Jack made a full recovery and was back on the court the following season. His bank shot–and his parents' bank accounts–were as strong as ever.
