Accidents are a fact of life
You can’t prevent every accident, but you can choose to protect yourself and your family with accident insurance. Across America accidents happen at an alarming rate. Every second of every day someone is disabled from an accidental injury. The National Safety Council reports that unintentional injuries are a “major health concern” for children in the U.S.1 If you or a family member were in an accident, your major medical plan may cover most of your medical expenses, but you’re likely to be responsible for out-of-pocket expenses such as deductibles and copays. Beneﬁts are paid directly to you or someone designated by you regardless of any other insurance you have. Many beneﬁts have no lifetime maximums, and rates won’t increase because you use your policy. This policy can cover you or your entire family.

- The annual economic impact of all unintentional injuries is measured at $753 billion nationwide.3
- About 33% of all hospital emergency room visits in the U.S. are injury related.4
