What is Medical Gap Insurance and is it Worth it?
Individual Marketplace major medical deductibles in 2020 range from $1,519 (Gold plan) to $6,506 (Bronze plan).
Do you have enough money (or funds in a health savings account) to meet your annual major medical deductible if you have a covered accident or critical illness? If not, think gap health insurance.
For example, gap insurance can include critical illness + accident insurance coverage that provides a fixed lump-sum benefit as a result of a covered critical illness. This lump-sum payment can be used any way you see fit. Accident coverage is available for covered expenses incurred, up to a maximum benefit limit, whichever is less.
