Deductible and Gap Protection Plans to Help Americans With
High Deductible Health Plans
TAMPA, Fla., Dec. 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Health Insurance
Innovations, Inc., “HII” (Nasdaq:HIIQ), a leading developer and virtual
administrator of affordable health insurance plans, ancillary products,
and research-driven consumer health insurance plan shopping tools,
today announced the launch of ACA Supplement Deductible and Gap
Protection Plans to help customers with accident expenses their ACA
metal plans may not cover until full deductibles are met, as well as
healthcare services not included in ACA coverage.
Across the nation, Americans are choosing individual and family health
plan coverage for 2015. Many are choosing on-exchange Bronze and Silver
plans. These plans could leave some families responsible for as much as
$13,200 in out-of-pocket expenses according to the Healthcare.gov
“Many of the people who choose these Bronze and Silver plans are not in
a financial position to absorb large out-of-pocket expenses. They may
need access to care well before they’ve met their deductibles and could
simply choose to remain untreated. That is why these deductible and gap
protection plans are so important,” explained Mike Kosloske, CEO of
Health Insurance Innovations.
HII’s ACA Supplement Deductible and Gap Protection Plans were developed
as a supplement to ACA health plans, not as a primary health plan.
Alongside enhanced out-of-pocket protections in the case of accidents,
these plans include coverage for several categories of medical expenses
often not covered in ACA plans including adult dental and vision care,
chiropractic care, as well as 24/7 access to U.S. board-certified
physicians who can help resolve medical issues via phone.
The ACA Supplement Deductible and Gap Protection Plans can be purchased
now from the over sixteen thousand licensed insurance agents who are
part of the Health Insurance Innovations distributor network at
