How accident insurance works

Increase benefit coverage options without impacting your bottom line

When an employee experiences a sudden covered accidental injury, accident insurance can help them offset unexpected medical expenses that aren’t covered by their medical insurance. Since benefits are paid directly, they can be used to cover things like co-pays and deductibles, making accident insurance a great complement to a high deductible health plan.

Coverage can be entirely employee-paid, offering a way to expand coverage options for employees without impacting your budget. Everyone wins:

  • Flexible coverage options. Employees can choose coverage for just themselves, or they can select family coverage for their spouses and children.
  • Benefits are payable directly to employees (unless otherwise specified). Accident payments are based upon the type of covered accident, and employees can spend the money how they want.
  • No medical underwriting to qualify for coverage. Employees can get accident coverage without answering health questions.
  • HSA-compatible. All accident plans are HSA-compatible.
  • Annual wellness benefit for routine examinations or other preventive testing encourages proactive health management.1
  • Additional benefit provisions1 available may include Active Lifestyles, Behavioral Health Therapy, Personal Safety Benefit, and a Building Benefit that increases the value of coverage over time.
