How Much Accident Insurance Do I Need?
Finding the accident insurance plan for you depends on how much you will need to cover deductibles, co-pays, and other unexpected expenses if you or a family member has an accident. Many major medical insurance programs have deductibles that you would be responsible to pay should an accident occur. A comprehensive accident insurance plan can help you avoid draining your savings if an accidental injury occurs.
You will also want to consider a variety of factors, including how much you want to pay or can afford to pay each month. This will largely depend on whether you want to pay more up front through a premium or more if and when you or a family member is injured. The larger the premium you pay up front, the less you will pay if you or a family member suffers an accident.
Accident insurance plans may cover a variety of injury and treatment types but you’ll want to check with your insurance provider that your plan covers the most common injuries and treatments. You’ll also want to ensure you don’t have a deductible and there is no annual maximum.
