Life can be unpredictable. Accidents, injuries, and illnesses are bound to
happen; and when they do, you should be able to focus on your recovery —
not worrying about finances.
Plan For the Unexpected
Independence Blue Cross (Independence) health plan
offers you the security of knowing you have access to high-quality care,
including the largest network of doctors and hospitals in the region. For
added peace of mind, consider pairing your Independence health plan with an
accident, critical illness, and hospital recovery insurance plan from the
LifeSecure Insurance Company*, an independent company.
LifeSecure plans offer financial support when you need it most — in the
event of an accident, serious illness, or hospital stay. You can make up
for lost income and pay for medical deductibles, out-of-network office
visits, uncovered treatments, childcare, transportation to appointments,
household upkeep, or anything else you may need.
Let’s explore the plans available from LifeSecure and how they can enhance
your medical coverage!
In the event of an accident, an Independence health plan provides benefits
for covered medical services associated with an injury. But you might also
want supplemental medical insurance to help with out-of-pocket costs
resulting from an accident that can set you back financially.
That’s where LifeSecure comes in. LifeSecure’s personal accident insurance
provides cash benefits paid directly to you to help offset injury-related
expenses, such as copays, tests, X-rays, and therapy, regardless of any
other insurance you have.
Here’s an example of how a LifeSecure accident insurance plan with an
annual benefit amount of $10,000 can help you in the event of an accident:
Donna has a $100 deductible under her LifeSecure personal accident
insurance plan and has incurred $8,800 in reimbursable medical expenses,
including the costs of deductibles, copays, and coinsurance. Her benefit
payout would be $8,700.
Critical Illness Insurance
When you or someone in your family is dealing with a major health event,
such as a heart attack, stroke, or cancer, a critical illness insurance
plan from LifeSecure can help pay for expenses that traditional insurance
plans do not cover, such as lost income, mortgage payments or other
household bills, medical deductibles, rehabilitation, and uncovered
LifeSecure’s critical illness insurance plans offer a lump-sum cash benefit
upon diagnosis of a covered disease to help pay these expenses. Below is a
chart that details what percentage of the benefit amount you would receive
upon first diagnosis for several commonly covered diseases.
Protection For the Whole Family
With a critical illness insurance plan, you’ll have the security of knowing
that everyone in your family is protected:
• If you include your spouse or partner, his or her benefit amount will match
• Each dependent child is automatically covered with a $2,500 benefit amount
— at no additional cost.
• Subsequent diagnosis of a different critical illness is also eligible for
Hospital Recovery Insurance
An Independence health plan provides benefits to help with medical costs
resulting from an inpatient hospitalization or treatment in an observation
unit. By pairing your medical plan with a LifeSecure hospital recovery
insurance, you can extend your protection past your hospital stay.
A hospital recovery insurance plan provides cash benefits for each day of a
covered hospital stay, regardless of any other insurance you have. Benefits
can help pay for anything you need during recovery, including
transportation, delivery or take-out meals, or help around the house.
Focus on Recovery, Not Finances
In the event of an inpatient hospitalization, here’s an example of how a
LifeSecure hospital recovery insurance plan with a $10,000 benefit amount
can help you:
Cindy selects a daily benefit amount of $500. She is later hospitalized for
four days after back surgery. Upon discharge, Cindy’s benefit payout will
