What is accident and health insurance?
The Bankrate.com financial term of the day is: "Accident and Health Insurance"
Don't believe the rock band Blondie, which once had a song called "Accidents Never Happen." Oh, but accidents do happen, and they can be covered under accident and health insurance. Benefits are paid not only in case of sickness, but also in case of accidental injury or accidental death. Group policies may cover the employees at a company or students at a school. A policy taken out in connection with a loan would provide for lost income and pay the debt.
Life can accidentally take a hard, unexpected turn. For those occasions, it's good to have accident and health insurance.
