The Emerging World of Supplemental Insurance

By now many of you have seen the insurance commercials featuring the duck they are quite entertaining; however, very few people really understand what it all means. We've taken a moment to simplify the concept of supplemental insurance to help you determine the role it can play in your life.

What is supplemental insurance?

Supplemental insurance is coverage that you can purchase which provides cash benefits (paid directly to you) to help pay medical and non-medical expenses associated with a covered illness or accident. The sole purpose of a supplemental insurance policy is to pay you cash to help ease the financial burden of unexpected medical expenses.
