Help With the Cost of Hospital Admissions
Being hospitalized for a sickness or injury is a common occurrence, and can happen to anyone at any time. While your medical insurance may cover hospital bills, it may not cover all of the costs associated with a hospital stay, such as deductibles and co-pays, transportation, and lodging.
That's where Hospital Indemnity coverage can help.
Guardian's Hospital Indemnity benefit can help pay for out-of-pocket costs associated with being hospitalized in addition to your medical coverage, and can give you more of a financial safety net for unplanned expenses brought on by a hospital stay.
Lump sum benefits paid directly to you
Payments from Hospital Indemnity Insurance are made directly to you if you are admitted to a hospital for a covered sickness or injury. Payments are made even if you did not actually incur any out-of-pocket expenses. And the money you receive can be used for any purpose, such as:
- High deductibles and copays
- Travel to and from the hospital for treatment
- Child care service assistance while recovering
Coverage is guaranteed, no medical questions asked
Guardian's Group Hospital Indemnity Insurance is always "guaranteed issue" – there are no medical questions or exams required, making it easy and hassle free for your you to sign up for coverage. You can also take the coverage with you if you happen to leave your employer.
