Hospital indemnity insurance is a supplemental insurance policy that provides a fixed cash benefit for each day spent in the hospital. It is designed to help individuals offset the expenses associated with a hospital stay that their primary health insurance may not fully cover.
With hospital indemnity insurance, policyholders receive a predetermined daily cash amount for each day they are hospitalized, regardless of the actual medical costs incurred. This cash benefit can be used at the policyholder's discretion to cover various expenses, such as deductibles, copayments, transportation, lodging, and other out-of-pocket costs.
Hospital indemnity insurance offers financial protection and peace of mind by providing an additional layer of coverage tailored explicitly to hospital stays, helping individuals manage unexpected medical expenses and focus on their recovery.
