Understanding The Benefits of Supplemental Coverage
High health insurance deductibles can leave you on the hook for thousands of dollars out-of-pocket. Supplemental insurance can help prevent this by covering some or all of your deductible payments.
If you have a high deductible and rupture your appendix, the first $5,000 or $10,000 of expenses are your responsibility, depending on your deductible amount. Supplemental insurance pays cash for unexpected medical bills with no deductible.
Some supplemental plans only cover cancer or accidents, but not hospitalization or critical illness. Save money by selecting a plan that fits your needs – including one that covers most life events.
Supplemental plans offer more than accident and illness coverage. Get added non-insurance benefits like low-cost telehealth and discount prescription drugs included with every policy.
Supplemental insurance is easy to use. If you incur an unexpected accident, critical illness diagnosis, or land in the hospital, one form and proof of claim from your insurance company is all you need to get your cash benefits.
No pre-authorization is required for supplemental insurance. If you suffer a sudden accident or illness, you don’t need to worry about making a phone call before getting treatment to have your claims paid.

Why You Might Need Supplemental Insurance
In 2017, consumers with individual health insurance plans (employer plans or other plans on or off the public exchanges) will pay in out-of-pocket expenses up to:
- $7,150 for an individual plan and
- $14,300 for a family plan
Those are the maximums if you use in-network doctors and medical facilities. You will pay much more if you go out-of-network.
That’s in addition to your monthly health insurance premium costs.
Most Americans cannot afford 1,000s of dollars in out-of-pocket expenses such as deductibles and coinsurance.
AND, you have other expenses that just don’t stop when you are ill or injured: mortgage payments, child care costs, utility expenses, etc.
Supplemental Insurance Can Fill Gaps
Supplemental health insurance pays benefits for sickness and accidents that coordinate with your individual health insurance plan or pay IN ADDITION TO any other coverage you have—to help fill the out-of-pocket gaps in your coverage.
Insurance benefits can be used for:
- Medical deductible or coinsurance
- Rent or mortgage
- Car payments
- Child care
- Everyday living expenses

Supplemental Insurance Use Case
Aaron has a Major Medical plan with:
- $3,000 Deductible
- 20% Co-insurance
- $6,500 out-of-pocket maximum
Aaron is happy to have health insurance, but he worries about the out-of-pocket cost, if he has any serious accident or illness. He’s had some health issues in the past with diabetes.
$6,500 is a lot more than Aaron has in the bank, and he’s already pretty high on his credit card balances. He’d like to have a worry-free zone by having coverage for his out-of-pocket gap.
That’s why Aaron chose our Latitude plan. It was issued with no health questions, at an affordable rate, and he now has the added peace of mind that he wanted.
