U.S. hospital care treatment has reached $1 trillion – that’s 32% of the country’s total healthcare expenditures.2

Washington National offers a standalone hospital and intensive care unit (ICU) insurance policy, and we also include hospitalization and ICU benefits with many of our other supplemental health products.

Hospitalization in real life:

Joe, a factory worker, always feared hospitals and avoided them whenever possible. He didn’t even like visiting close friends and family when they were hospitalized. Still, he felt he should buy a supplemental hospital policy to complement his major medical coverage. When Joe’s appendix was removed, his policy’s $200 daily hospitalization benefit covered a variety of medical and nonmedical expenses.
