We’ve all seen the silly duck (or is it a goose?) advertising cash in your pocket because of an illness or accident, but what exactly is a Hospital Indemnity Policy and how does it compare to Disability Income Protection?
Although qualified as “insurance” a Hospital Indemnity Policy is actually a cash benefit plan that pays directly to the insured (you) in the case of hospital confinement. Most folks purchase an indemnity plan to help offset the co-pay and deductible costs associated with their major medical insurance.
Over the last few weeks we’ve discussed different insurance products in hopes of making them a little less confusing. We’ve covered Auto, Home, Life, Renters, Mobile Home and although it isn’t actual insurance, SR-22 filing.
With Medicare’s Annual “Open” Enrollment (AEP) barreling down upon us (Oct. 15 through Dec. 7th), I thought I’d take a moment to talk about what, exactly, Medicare is.
