Hospital Indemnity Plan

A Hospital Indemnity Plan (HIP) provides coverage for a specified fixed dollar amount for covered hospital services and duration, regardless of the actual cost of the service.  HIP policies can be purchased as a standalone and do not combine with any other health care insurance coverage.

Hospital Indemnity Plans cover most additional services such as ambulance trips, second surgical opinions, and even chemotherapy. There are other plans that pay for diagnostic services such as preventive care, X-rays, urgent care and other services. Just like with any healthcare product, the benefits available to you will vary according to the plan you choose.

Who needs this?

Just about anyone who is susceptible to a major injury requiring a hospital stay.  HIP can help give you the confidence for unforeseen difficulties that may not have such an impact on your financial security.

Individuals who are concerned about how they’d pay the bills if they were hospitalized should also consider the HIP insurance. Why so? It’s because even the best medical insurance may not be able to cover an entire hospital bill.

And if you end up in the hospital for an extended period, you may need cash to cover expenses such as:

  • Family’s groceries and living expenses
  • Child’s daycare
  • Utility bills
  • Mortgage
  • Health insurance deductible

Having a hospital indemnity insurance plan can even help pay for insurance premiums and deductibles to ensure that you do not have a disruption in your services.

This plan also helps safeguard your savings accounts and supports your out of pocket expenses.
