A serious injury or death can be catastrophic to a family – and the unexpected expenses that may arise can cause added stress. Cigna provides support to you and your employees during these life-changing events. Including Cigna Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) insurance on an employer- or employee-paid basis in your comprehensive benefits strategy helps employees stay financially protected and better prepared.
How it Works for your Employees
- Payment provided in the case of a serious injury or death due to a covered accident and living benefits for non-fatal catastrophic injuries.
- Benefits paid can help pay for unexpected expenses not covered by other insurance benefits such as life, disability, health or workers’ compensation. Unexpected costs may include home and vehicle modification, physical therapy and rehabilitation, spouse job training and childcare.
- Substantial, guaranteed-issue coverage. Usually offered with no medical questions or exam requirements for employees.
- Automatic claims submission for employees who also have Cigna's Accidental Injury, Critical Illness or Hospital Care coverage. We'll automatically file their accidental injury, critical illness or hospital care claim for them based on their Cigna AD&D claim data.
