Shared Maximum Benefit Option

Most of our plans are composed of benefits that pay a fixed amount up to a per person, per calendar year maximum for each individual benefit. There's another type of plan available — one where a predetermined set of benefits share one calendar year maximum.


The benefits included in these Shared Maximum Benefits still provide a fixed payment for covered claims. Participants enjoy the flexibility of deciding which benefits they'd like to use under the maximum set for the policy which can range from $10,000 to $100,000. 
Policyholders also have the option of including benefits with individual maximums, providing the additional benefit isn’t already part of the shared maximum plan. Even though there are two benefit options, there is just one premium amount for this plan design.
Talk to your Select Benefits rep to find out if Shared Maximum Plans are available in your state.
