Is accident insurance worth it
Your health insurance may cover some of the costs of an accident but it may come with a high deductible. The out-of-pocket costs of your health insurance alone can deal your finances a devastating blow. Supplemental accident insurance can help you pay these bills so you can focus on your recovery.
DID YOU KNOW
Over 40 million people each year are treated in an emergency room for an accidental injury¹.
Accident insurance coverage
Many car and life insurance plans include some level of coverage for accidents. But many of these plans may not cover additional expenses such as childcare, pay for missed work, your mortgage, or car payments.
With supplemental accident insurance, your premiums do not change when you use them or if your health changes.
When you are self-employed, if you miss work you often are missing out on potential earnings. Personal accident insurance can allow you to pay for things like childcare or even groceries while you or your loved one is recovering from an injury.
Some of the occupations that can benefit the most from supplemental accident coverage include:
Ride share operators
