Bedford Park, IL (PRWEB) June 23, 2011
More than a million people visit the emergency room each year. The average cost for an emergency room visit in a hospital today is $400, which does not include additional tests, such as blood work and x-rays. If an overnight stay is required, costs can exceed $1,000 per day for a regular room and $2,000 per day in an intensive care unit. To help protect consumers, United Security Life & Health Insurance Company (USL&H) is launching a new product, the Accident Hospital Indemnity Plan, aimed at offsetting specific costs related to an accident. The Accident Hospital Indemnity Plan can be added to USL&H’s Major Medical or Critical Illness plans to assist in the payment of costly medical care related to an accident and emergency medical treatment.
Sandra Horn, President, USL&H, stated “For as little as twelve dollars a month USL&H’s Accident Hospital Indemnity Plan will pay up to $400 a day toward a hospital stay due to an accident. This additional coverage can make a substantial impact toward the out of pocket medical costs due to an accident prior to meeting the deductible and co-insurance expenses of a major medical insurance plan.”
USL&H is introducing its Accident Hospital Indemnity Plan in the states of Arizona, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri and Nebraska. Committed to its customers, USL&H is continually reviewing its products in order to best meet the insureds’ evolving needs. The introduction of the Accident Hospital Indemnity Plan is another example of how this company-wide goal is met.
USL&H holds an A+ accreditation with the Better Business Bureau. USL&H is a regional insurance carrier that offers cancer, critical illness, disability income, health and life insurance products to individuals and families. Founded in 1973, USL&H is licensed to sell its products in Arizona, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana and Missouri and Nebraska through a network of independent insurance agents. USL&H has named the Fisher House Foundation as its charitable partner for 2011. USL&H will be donating one dollar to the Fisher House Foundation for every new business policy that is written in 2011. Company employees will also participate in a variety of special fundraising events that will benefit the Fisher House. A Fisher House is a "home away from home" for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers.
