Supplemental Insurance Program Highlights
Many supplemental insurance plans have traditionally been available only through participating employers. As a result, many Americans have not had the opportunity to purchase this type of insurance. The great news is that several plans can now be purchased* on a discounted individual basis as a member of one of our participating Alumni Associations.
* Most policies are underwritten for health. Policy issue is not guaranteed.
Why Supplemental Insurance?
The need for supplemental coverage has become an essential part of protecting your family's financial security as gaps in benefit plans continue to widen. The Solution… Cash!. In case of an accident or illness, some supplemental insurance policies can pay cash directly to you regardless of any other insurance you may have. The cash can be used for Deductibles or Co-payments for medical expenses, or it can be used for every day expenses such as Mortgage Payments, Car Payments, Groceries, Utilities, Childcare and more.

If you own your own business, your employees are also eligible for program's benefits (ie premium discounts). The Federal Government has also incentivized the use of Long Term Care Insurance as a benefit by allowing it to be a tax deduction and by giving employers the right to selectively administer the benefit (you can choose who gets it and who doesn't).
