Critical Accident Direct

Cash benefits paid directly to you, not your doctor or hospital, for expenses that result from a serious accident


With advances in emergency medical treatment and trauma care, the likelihood of surviving a critical accident continues to increase. However, there may be an extended recovery period with an injury that is life altering.

Having health insurance is just one part of the protection you need to help you recover. A supplemental insurance plan will help with the out-of-pocket expenses not covered by your health insurance, as well as help with expenses for home modifications or other lifestyle changes required to adapt to a new way of living.

Our Critical Accident Direct supplemental insurance plan is simple and is intended to complement our Critical Illness Direct plan. It pays a lump-sum cash benefit directly to you for qualifying injuries caused by an accident. This money can be used for anything you choose, including expenses health insurance doesn’t pay for, such as your health insurance plan deductibles and co-pays, offsetting a loss of income during your hospital stay, family travel expenses, or to help with everyday living expenses. It’s your money; how you spend it is your decision.

Cash Benefits Can Be Used For

  • Copays or Coinsurances
  • Rent or Mortgage
  • Car Payments
  • Child Care
  • Everyday Living Expenses

Why do I need supplemental insurance from SureBridge if I already have medical insurance?
