What is hospital indemnity insurance?

Hospital indemnity insurance complements your existing health insurance plan by paying you cash benefits when you’re hospitalized due to covered accidental injury or sickness.

Why hospital indemnity insurance?

The average cost of a hospital stay is nearly $11,000.¹ If you require hospitalization, all your expenses may not be covered by private insurance or Medicare. Out-of-pocket expenses, including deductibles and co-pays, are growing—meaning you may be responsible for more of the hospital bill.

Hospital indemnity insurance plans provide payment in the event of a hospital stay, in addition to any other coverage you receive, including Medicare. As a result, the cash benefits can help reduce any financial stress during your time of need.
