Personal Accident Insurance can be used not only to offset the costs associated with an accident such as ambulance transportation, emergency room visits, X-rays, and rehabilitative therapies but also for ordinary daily bills, child care or even yard work. These types of policies can work well with both individual and group medical insurance plans.
Premiums can be competitively priced and some policies have decreasing deductibles over time. Call or contact me today for more details.
