You can’t always avoid accidents— but you can help protect yourself.
When life takes an unexpected turn, Accident Insurance can help you pay for the expenses not covered by your medical insurance if you have a covered injury and need treatment.
Even with good insurance, accidents can bring significant expenses
Injuries can set back your finances in a big way, and they’re more common than you might think. Every 10 minutes, over 750 Americans suffer an injury severe enough to seek medical help.1 Unexpected injuries can bring out-of-pocket fees that you’re not prepared to pay.
When you or your family members receive treatment after a covered accident, the last thing you want to worry about is how out-of-pocket expenses associated with treatment are adding up. Accident Insurance can provide benefits paid directly to you for:
- Initial care and surgery
- Urgent care and emergency room visits
- Ambulance and other transportation to the hospital
- Hospital stays and lodging expenses related to the accident
- Follow-up care, such as doctor’s office visits and physical therapy appointments
- A set amount is payable directly to you based on the type of injury and required treatment
- Use the payment as you see fit, such as to cover doctor visits, ambulance fees and hospital bills
- Accident Insurance is paid regardless of whether the injury occurred on-the-job or off-the-job, depending on the plan chosen.
- With Accident Insurance through Pierce Insurance, you have the option to elect:
- Wellness rider
- Disability rider
- Accident Insurance can also help provide for your family in the case of dismemberment or accidental death
Coverage is available for your spouse and children.
Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water. Jack fell down and broke his arm and tore his knee cartilage. Jill ran to his rescue and called 911. The ambulance transported Jack to the hospital, and he was admitted to the emergency room and eventually spent one night at the hospital. Jack was treated by a physician for torn knee cartilage, and his knee was repaired the following week. Jack had to receive 10 sessions of physical therapy. He visited his physician and is doing well. Jill incurred no injuries.
Jack received a total of $2,200 to help cover his out-of-pocket expenses giving him peace of mind.
