What benefits can I receive with Hospital Indemnity Insurance?
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists offers Hospital Indemnity insurance designed to help you complement other hospitalization insurance and minimize the need to tap into personal funds. This Plan can pay you up to $300 a day per confinement when you must stay in a hospital due to injury or sickness. Benefits for your spouse can be paid up to $300 a day per confinement, not to exceed your daily benefit amount. Benefits for your children can be either $50 or $100 a day per stay, not to exceed your daily benefit amount.
If you select benefits up to $200 per day, benefits will start on the first day of eligible hospitalization. If you select benefits of $250 or $300 per day, benefits will start on the seventh day of consecutive confinement. Benefits can continue for up to 365 days per confinement for one injury or one sickness. Successive confinements due to the same or related cause, will be considered one confinement unless each confinement is separated by at least 180 days.
