What is supplemental health insurance?

The Bankrate.com financial term of the day is: "supplemental health insurance."

Health insurance won't necessarily protect you from big expenses if you get sick. You can find yourself dealing with staggering out-of-pocket charges, not to mention the cost of having someone care for your children while you're in the hospital or the expense of traveling to another city for a major procedure. You buy supplemental health insurance to help pay for these sorts of things that your regular health insurance doesn't cover.

Supplemental health insurance can give you an extra layer of protection from the often high cost of medical care.
