Your health discount card can be especially useful if your major medical plan reduces your prescription drug benefits.¹

Fast, direct benefit payments 

Fast, direct benefit paymentsOne tremendous advantage of our supplemental products is the cash benefits paid directly to you or to someone you designate. You get to decide how to use them. You may need the money to pay health care bills not covered by your major medical plan—or to replace lost wages, pay living expenses, arrange for needed transportation or cover childcare costs during treatment.

First-occurrence benefits 

First-occurrence benefits Many of our supplemental policies have a "first occurrence" benefit. When you're first diagnosed with a critical illness, such as cancer, you get a lump-sum payment. Money is delivered to you as quickly as possible—so you can focus on your care, not on the cost.
