Group Accident Insurance complements your medical coverage by helping to ease the financial impact of an accident. It provides you with a payment to use as you see fit and can help with any of the out of pocket expenses you may incur as a result of an accident, such as insurance deductibles, copays, transportation to/from medical centers, childcare and more.
Accidents can happen anytime, anywhere. Today's active lifestyles may make you more susceptible, too. You can't plan for accidents, but you can be better prepared financially to handle them when they do occur. MetLife offers Accident Insurance so you can focus more on your recovery and less on your finances. There are over 150 covered events that could trigger benefits.
