The following information and benefits chart have been supplied by MetLife to describe their Accident Insurance Plan.
An accident can happen to anyone in the family — and with it can come unexpected expenses not covered by medical insurance. You may want to consider accident insurance if:
- You and your family have an active lifestyle
- Your children play sports
- Your medical plan has high deductibles or copays
- Covers your family for a wide variety of accidental injuries, including broken bones, concussions, dislocations, and second- and third-degree burns
- Provides a lump-sum payment when a covered person has medical services and treatments related to accidental injuries, such as certain doctor visits, ambulance transportation, medical testing and physical therapy
- Is a valuable complement to your medical insurance
- Can help protect your savings from unexpected expenses, which could be substantial
- Provides payment directly to you, which you can use any way you see fit
- Covered services/treatments must be the result of an accident or sickness as defined in the group policy/certificate
You must be actively at work on the effective date of insurance. If you are not, your insurance coverage will not take effect until you return to work. If you cover a dependent, your dependent must not be confined at home under a physician’s care, receiving or applying for disablity benefits from any source, or hospitalized in order for the insurance to take effect. You may cancel this coverage at any time during the year by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Upon termination of employment, this coverage ends on the date of termination.
