Hospital Indemnity Insurance

If you have ever seen an itemized hospital bill you know how expensive hospital stays can be. From the fees of the doctors and specialists to the charges for individual aspirin, the cost of any item not covered by your insurance becomes a rapidly mounting financial responsibility. In some cases, hospital bills can take years to pay off.
 

Hospital Indemnity Insurance is designed to assist with certain medical expenses and supplement many of the out-of-pocket expenses not covered by your primary health insurance such as coinsurance, deductibles, private room charges, in-room TV, expenses for travel and lodging, childcare, cell phones and other incidental expenditures.

 

At Standard Life we understand that hospitalization is stressful enough without the worry over payment. Our Freedom Series Hospital Indemnity Plan is designed to help alleviate some of the financial impact hospitalization and unforeseen expenses may bring. The plan pays you, or the hospital* if you assigned benefits, a stipulated daily benefit during a covered hospital confinement in addition to any payment made by your primary insurance plan. You have the freedom to choose the benefit amount that best suits your situation and, spend the payment anyway you see fit—offset unreimbursed medical bills, pay for non-medical expenses associated with hospitalization, or supplement daily living expenses.

 

Don't let unforeseen costs associated with hospitalization impair you or your family’s financial future. For added protection tomorrow, consider a Standard Life Freedom Series Hospital Indemnity Plan today.
