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


Nationally, more than $664.8 billion is spent on physician and clinical services.3

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.

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.
