What is supplemental accident and health insurance?
Supplemental insurance policies are separate from your major medical insurance and help you pay for things associated with major injury or illness. The benefits are paid directly to you (or whomever you choose), not the medical provider, so you're able to use the benefits to pay for out-of-pocket medical costs, supplement lost wages or pay for some of the other unexpected expenses when a covered loss occurs.

If I purchase a supplemental accident and health insurance policy, do I still need major medical insurance?
Yes. Your major medical insurance coverage is important. Our affordable supplemental insurance products such as cancer, disability and accidental injury policies provide you with money to pay for some of the expenses not covered by major medical insurance.

What kinds of insurance products does Combined Insurance offer?
We offer a number of policies, including disability and life insurance, as well as supplemental accident and health insurance. We work to craft insurance that is easy to understand so you can make the right decisions about your coverage and find the best supplemental insurance policy to meet your needs.
