What is important to know about Hospital Cash Benefit?

The Hospital Cash Benefit pays the daily benefit amount if you get sick or suffer an injury that requires you to be confined in a hospital as an inpatient for more than 24 hours. This benefit will only be payable for an injury if the hospitalization occurs within 30 days of the accident that caused the injury. The maximum payment period is 90 days for the same sickness or injury and 180 days for all sicknesses and injuries.

The Hospital Cash Benefit is only available as a rider on Simplified Elite, Preferred and Preferred Elite, and Express Elite policies.

The premium rates for the Hospital Cash Benefit may be adjusted based on the claims experience of all Lives Insured at the end of each calendar year.
