what does aflac insurance cover

If you are working to secure financial protection for yourself and your family during unforeseen circumstances, you might be wondering: what does Aflac accident insurance cover? In this post, we’ll take a look at some of the benefits that come with Aflac’s accident insurance policies.

Aflac Accident Indemnity Advantage policies are intended to supplement major medical programs and cannot replace comprehensive health insurance coverage packages. Rather, these policies are designed to pay cash benefits to designated recipients in the event of an accident or unforeseen injury. This cash benefit can help cover out-of-pocket expenses that aren’t typically covered by major medical insurance policies. This includes expenses like emergency treatment, broken bones, lacerations, concussions, broken teeth, ambulance transportation and even treatment-related transportation, lodging and loss of income. Aflac offers personal coverage plans, as well as group benefit plans. Let’s take a look at the key benefits of each:
