Hospital Indemnity Insurance

New for 2024!

Hospital Indemnity Insurance from Trustmark Insurance Company pays a benefit to enrollees for days spent in the hospital. Hospital bills can be high and unexpected, no matter what type of medical insurance you have. The costs of a hospital stay can add up quick. That’s where Hospital Indemnity comes in. Trustmark will pay a daily benefit for being hospitalized, as well as for every day you spend in the hospital (up to 365 days). If you have to spend time in intensive care, those days are paid at double the normal daily rate.

The plan will pay regardless of other coverage you may have and there are no restrictions on how you may use the money. The benefit is also designed to be compatible1 with Health Savings Accounts (HSAs). Please watch the Hospital Indemnity Insurance video for more information on this benefit.

With Hospital Indemnity, you can worry less about your bills, and focus on recovering. There are no medical questions asked to enroll and it’s portable if you retire or leave state employment. Coverage is available for employees, their spouse, children, and dependent grandchildren.

This is an example of how Simon’s claim may have been paid in addition to his other health coverage:
