What kind of coverage does your group need?

Benefits that enhance your high‐deductible health plan (HDHP)

We offer a selection of products that can complement any high‐deductible plan and mitigate employee out‐of‐pocket costs.

Customized fixed‐payment gap plans: We'll work closely with you and your benefits broker or consultant to create a fixed-payment insurance plan that's tailored for your group.

Coverage for part‐time, seasonal and temporary employees

Everyone needs health care, but not everyone qualifies to participate in their company’s medical plan. We can help you give these employees access to services they might otherwise go without.

Fixed‐payment insurance: Customizable plans to meet your coverage needs and budget. We also offer a unique hourly plan ideal for variable‐schedule employees.

Protection for employees against unexpected costs from an accident or illness

An accident or cancer diagnosis can result in unforeseen medical costs. When they do, an additional layer of financial protection can help keep your employees on the path to recovery.

Critical illness: Pays a lump sum after a life‐altering illness diagnosis
Accident: Helps pay for eligible services and supplies related to an accidental injury.
GapAssist: Combines critical illness, accident and inpatient hospital into three turnkey plans with the same coverage at different benefit amounts.

Coverage may be subject to exclusions, limitations, reductions and termination of benefit provisions. For costs and complete details of the coverage, contact your Symetra representative.
