WASHINGTON – There is nearly unanimous consent (99 percent) among those with a supplemental insurance plan that their insurance provider offers excellent service. The new survey by Global Strategy Group, on behalf of America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), also found over 95 percent are satisfied with their supplemental plan benefits, which help augment their general health coverage.
Satisfaction with supplemental health plans is at an all-time high because they empower individuals and their families to continue living the life they’ve built while safeguarding their future. Supplemental coverage complements comprehensive medical coverage—and offers additional financial protection for extra expenses that can arise during a serious illness or injury, such as a disability, cancer diagnosis, or heart attack.
Everyone should wake up in the morning with peace of mind that if something happened, they and their loved ones are protected,” said Tom Meyers, Vice President of Product Policy for AHIP. “This study demonstrates that, more than ever, Americans are realizing the tremendous value and security these supplemental plans offer.
The vast majority of respondents reported that these plans provide high-quality, affordable coverage, are easy to navigate, and serve as a secure safety net against financial hardship. Key findings from the survey include:
AHIP and its members are committed to better financial health and well-being for American families, including through the additional security offered by supplemental insurance. The full 2018 survey methodology and top line results can be found here.
