Why purchase personal accident protection?
NEA 24 Membership with 24 hour accident protection.
With the affordable care act, comes higher levels of cost sharing, deductibles and coinsurance holes in policies are nearly eliminated with the right accident plan in place. Ohio health insurance deductibles are as high as $6600 per year. Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) are a great ways to save money and leverage the tax advantages but higher deductibles leaves your family exposed to higher out of pocket expenses. The right accident plan makes it easier to have a high deductible health insurance plan (HDHP) knowing that you won’t have to cover the deductible, and perhaps the coinsurance (depending on your health policy), if you have an accident plan in place.

Accident protection can be used by itself to cover accidents or can coincide with your existing health insurance policy. As consumers, we often purchase PPO policies with high deductibles or high annual maximum out-of-pocket amounts in order to keep down our monthly premiums. Accident protection can help to minimize those out of pocket costs from your regular health insurance plan, in the event of an accident.
Offset your high deductible health plan (Perfect for those with HSA Plans)
Do you have an HSA or simply a high deductible health plan? Our accident benefit plan fills the gap on your high deductible health insurance plan. For example, many HSA plans have a $2500 deductible or higher. If a family member has an accident, the $2500 benefit from an accident policy would offset or eliminate your health plan deductible. The 5000 accident policy costs just $44.95/mo and covers all accident related expenses up to $5000.
Parents do your kids play sports?
If you have kids or teenagers, there’s no doubt you have made a trip or two to the doctor’s office or emergency room for the occasional skateboard, snowboard, basketball, snow ski, surfing, mountain bike or sports injury. Don’t get stuck paying your PPO or HMO deductible and co-pay alone. Use your accident benefit plan reimbursement to help offset your health insurance deductible and co-pay.
Are you without any insurance at all?
There’s no argument that health insurance can be expensive and sometimes hard to qualify for medically. For whatever reason, if you are going without health insurance, a accident benefit plan may be a good “stop-gap” solution to protect you and your family, until you are able to add a major medical health insurance policy.
Are you unable to qualify medically for health insurance? An accident benefit plan will give you some peace of mind and protection, when you are going without any insurance at all. For as little as $29.95 per month you can protect yourself and your dependent family members against accidents. That’s about a dollar a day to protect you and your family. And there are no medical requirements.
With the ever increasing rates for health insurance, many families are forced to go to the higher level deductibles in the 5,000 to 10,000 range.
Always remember to consider coinsurance, which is the shared portion of the bill after the deductible has been met.
