Why Accident/Critical Illness Insurance Makes Sense

Most health insurance plans today are high-deductible plans. This exposes you thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket costs before your health insurance pays any benefit. Purchasing accident or critical illness insurance can be a form of re-insuring you against those high out-of-pocket obligations. If you are diagnosed with a covered critical illness, or sustain an accidental injury, these insurance policies will pay benefits that then can be used to pay your health plan deductible. The cost for accident and critical illness insurance is low.
