How does this insurance work?

If an employee experiences a hospital stay covered by the policy, they can receive a payout to use any way they wish — to help cover deductibles, out-of-pocket medical costs or everyday living expenses.

The payments are not dependent upon hospital charges and are paid in addition to any other benefits the employee may receive. Out-of-hospital benefits also are available.
