All full-time employees, and variable employees working 30 hours or more per week, are eligible to participate in Term Life & AD&D, Whole Life, Hospital Indemnity, Accident Insurance, Long Term Disability and Critical Illness coverage through Unum during CrossCountry’s Annual Open Enrollment. All of these benefits are voluntary and paid for 100% by you, the employee.
Term Life/AD&D Insurance
Term life with accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) insurance can provide financial protection for your loved ones if you die. This plan also includes “living benefits.” That means you can receive money if you survive an accident but have certain serious injuries or if you face a terminal illness someday.
Whole Life Insurance
Whole life insurance can provide benefits to your loved ones if you die prematurely and it provides coverage into your retirement years. You can keep Whole Life Insurance as long as you want. Once you’ve bought coverage, your cost won’t increase as you age. The benefit amount stays the same, too. It doesn’t decrease as you get older.
Accident insurance can pay a benefit directly to you if you suffer a covered injury and need treatment. It can offset the high cost of copays, deductibles, and other expenses your medical insurance doesn’t cover. This plan also covers on-the-job accidents.
Hospital Indemnity Insurance
Medical insurance covers many of the costs associated with a hospital stay and outpatient surgery, but you could still be left with significant out-of-pocket expenses. The UNUM hospital indemnity plan provides a $1,000 benefit for a hospital admission once per calendar year plus a $100 daily benefit up to a maximum of 60 days per calendar year. An annual $50 wellness benefit is also available for completing a covered health screening test.
Critical illness insurance can help by paying a lump sum payment directly to you at the first diagnosis of a covered condition. You decide how to spend it. You can use this coverage more than once for different conditions, but each condition is payable once per lifetime. You can also purchase coverage for your spouse. Dependent children are automatically covered at 25% of your benefit amount at no additional cost. All employees are eligible for coverage during the next open enrollment period.
