Who is eligible to enroll in these products?

Collapsed Expanded

I have a good medical plan at work. Why would I need additional coverage for accidents and illnesses?

Collapsed Expanded

Accidents and critical illnesses can happen anytime, to anyone, when you least expect them — and they can be costly. Even quality medical plans can leave you with extra expenses to pay. Costs like plan deductibles, copays for doctor visits, and extra costs for out-of-network care can add up fast. Having the financial support you may need when the time comes means less worry for you and your family.

Can I enroll in these insurance plans without having to take a medical exam?

Collapsed Expanded

Yes. These coverages are guaranteed issue, which means your acceptance is guaranteed, regardless of your health. You just need to be actively at work for your coverage to be effective. There are no medical exams to take and no health questions to answer.

Is there a waiting period before my coverage begins?

Collapsed Expanded

No. Supplemental insurance will be effective on the date of your coverage as long as you are actively employed. There are no waiting periods to satisfy.

Does this plan cover any other out-of-pocket costs?

Collapsed Expanded

Yes, you can use your payment as you see fit. Use it to help cover your household bills, medical insurance deductibles, copayments, and more.

How do I pay for my supplemental accident or critical illness insurance?

Collapsed Expanded

Premiums will be conveniently paid through payroll deduction, so you don’t have to worry about writing a check or missing a payment.

Are benefits paid directly to me or to my healthcare provider?

Collapsed Expanded

Payments will be paid directly to you, not to the doctors, hospitals, or other health care providers. You will receive a check, payable to you, for maximum convenience.

Is the claims process simple?

Collapsed Expanded

Yes. Once all required information is received, claims are generally processed within 10 business days. Only one claim form is needed per accident, and every claim is reviewed by a claims professional.

There are benefit reductions that begin at age 65. And, like most group accident and health insurance policies, policies offered by MetLife may contain certain exclusions, limitations and terms for keeping them in force.

METLIFE CRITICAL ILLNESS INSURANCE (CII) IS A LIMITED BENEFIT GROUP INSURANCE POLICY.

MetLife’s Issue Age CII is guaranteed renewable, and may be subject to benefit reductions that begin at age 65. Premium rates for MetLife’s Issue Age CII are based on age at the time of the initial coverage effective date and will not increase due to age; premium rates for increases in coverage, including the addition of dependents’ coverage, if applicable, will be based on the covered person’s age at the time of that increase’s effective date. Rates are subject to change for MetLife’s Issue Age CII on a class-wide basis. A more detailed description of the benefits, limitations, and exclusions applicable to both Attained Age and Issue Age CII can be found in the applicable Disclosure Statement or Outline of Coverage/Disclosure Document available at time of enrollment.
