What is accident insurance?

It's a way to stay ahead of the medical and out-of-pocket expenses that add up so quickly after an accidental injury - not just for emergency treatment, hospital stays and medical exams, but for other expenses you may face, such as transportation and lodging needs.

When you have a covered accident, we'll send cash benefits directly to you (unless you tell us otherwise) and you decide the best way to spend them. It's as simple as that.

You'll receive cash benefits for these and other expenses that may not be fully covered by your major medical insurance:

  • Broken teeth
  • Concussions
  • Intensive care unit confinement
  • Ambulance, ground and air
  • Emergency room visits
  • Lacerations

Who needs it?

Why do I need accident insurance?

After an accident, you may have expenses you've never thought about before. Can your finances handle them? It's reassuring to know that an accident insurance policy can be there for you through the many stages of care, from the initial emergency treatment or hospitalization, to follow up treatments or physical therapy.

In addition, your regular bills, such as the mortgage or rent, car payments and utility bills don't stop when you're laid up after an accident. Aflac accidental injury benefits are paid directly to you, so you can use them to help with your normal bills as well.

What is Cancer Insurance?

No one wants to experience a cancer diagnosis, but the fact is that the risk of getting cancer is great. In the United States, men have slightly less than a one in two lifetime risk of developing cancer; for women, the risk is a little more than one in three (Cancer Facts and Figures 2009, American Cancer Society). A cancer/specified-disease insurance policy is designed to provide you with cash benefits during covered cancer treatments.

A cancer/specified-disease insurance policy can also help protect your income and savings from expenses that aren't covered by your major medical health insurance policy, including:

  • Deductibles
  • Out-of-network specialists
  • Experimental cancer treatment
  • Travel and lodging when treatment is far from home
  • Child care and household help
  • Normal living expenses, such as your car payment, andutility bills

Who needs it?

Why do I need Cancer Insurance?

While you can't always predict the future, here at Aflac we believe it's good to be prepared. Aflac's cancer/specified-disease insurance is here to help you and your family better cope financially and emotionally if a positive diagnosis of cancer ever occurs. That way you can worry less about what may be lying ahead.

Critical Care & Recovery protection insurance may make all the difference by providing cash benefits as you concentrate on your recovery.

Covered health events also include:

  • Stroke
  • Paralysis
  • Coronary artery bypass surgery
  • Persistent vegetative state
  • Major human organ transplant
  • Coma

What is it?

What is Dental Insurance?

Regular trips to the dentist are essential for good oral health. A dental insurance policy may help considerably with the costs, often paying 100 percent of the expense of preventive benefits. But a great smile often requires additional dental care, such as X-rays, sealants, and emergency oral evaluation.

 Aflac bases its dental care benefits on the American Dental Association (ADA) code and spells out the benefits for both wellness and other diagnostic/treatment services. Since each covered procedure has a specific benefit amount, you know exactly what you're getting. Translation: No surprises. Other advantages include:

  • No deductibles
  • No precertification
  • The freedom and flexibility to choose your own dentist
  • Benefit payment regardless of other dental or medicalcoverage that may overlap
  • Ownership of the dental care policy (in other words, if you switch jobs or retire, you can take the policy with you and receive the same benefits)

Who needs it?

Why do I need Dental Insurance?

Your body's overall health may be more closely linked to oral health than you realize. Some studies suggest that heart disease, clogged arteries, strokes, premature births and diabetes may be associated with poor oral health.

Hospital Confinement Indemnity

What is it?

What is Hospital Confinement Indemnity?

No matter how good your medical insurance is, when you're hospitalized for an injury or illness there will probably be medical expenses and out of pocket costs that aren't covered. A hospital confinement indemnity insurance policy provides cash benefits to use as you see fit. 

The benefits are predetermined and paid regardless of any other insurance you have, and you have a choice of applying for basic to extensive hospital coverage. Whether you want a plan that provides hospitalization benefits only, or one that also addresses diagnostic procedures, outpatient surgery and ambulance transportation, Aflac can help.

Some Aflac advantages:
  • No deductibles
  • Increased benefit amount for the first five days of hospitalization
  • HSA compatible policies are available
  • We don't use networks, so you can be treated at the hospital of your choice
  • No precertification
  • You own your policy, so even if you change jobs or retire, you can take it with you.

Who needs it?

Why do I need Hospital Confinement Indemnity?

Concerned about the cost of hospitalization? Rightly so — a hospital stay, even a short one, can be very expensive. Even with the best major medical insurance policy, your entire hospital bill probably won't be covered. And what about things health insurance was never intended to cover, like transportation and meals for family members, help with child care or time away from work? 

Often it's those unexpected expenses that add up quickly and force you to dip into your savings or borrow. A hospital confinement indemnity insurance policy is designed to provide you with cash benefits during a covered hospitalization.

Some of the policy benefits include:
  • Hospital confinement
  • Major diagnostic exams
  • Surgery
  • Ambulance transportation
  • Different levels of coverage to suit your needs and budget
  • No precertification or network requirements

Who needs it?

Why do I need Hospital Confinement Sickness Indemnity?
