Just as it sounds, Accident insurance can help you pay for costs you may incur after a covered accidental injury. Covered accidents include a car accident, a fall while skiing or even a fall down the stairs at home. The benefit is paid regardless of any other insurance coverage you might have (including your medical coverage). The policy also includes an Accidental Death Benefit of $50,000*.
* Spouse benefit is $25,000 and Child benefit is $10,000.

Critical Illness insurance pays a fixed benefit directly to each participant (unless otherwise assigned) who is diagnosed with a covered critical illness; re-occurrence benefits if the condition returns, and additional occurrence benefit if another covered illness is incurred (subject to limitations). You can use this money for any purpose you like. It can help pay for expenses not covered by your health care plan (such as your deductible or copays), lost income, child care, travel to and from treatment, home health care costs or any of your regular household expenses. Policy includes a $50 health screening benefit. Below is an example.
