Manhattan Insurance Group Policies
Manhattan Insurance Group sells accident, dental and vision, cancer care plus, disability, essential benefits, critical protection and recovery, and life insurance policies.
Accident insurance includes benefits for a variety of injuries and situations, including: burns, fractures, dislocation, tendon and ligament injuries, stitches and staples, eye injury surgery, physical therapy, emergency room or doctors office visits, ambulance, blood and plasma, hospital confinement, intensive care, and accidental death or dismemberment.
MIG’s dental and vision plan offers a large network of national providers, and the freedom of choice to select which provider you’d like to see. Additionally, the insurance company offers group dental and vision plans, as well as voluntary and non-voluntary plans.
Central United Life Insurance administers the Manhattan Insurance Group’s cancer care plus program, which provides the benefits for cancer treatment and extra expenses. Cancer care plus covers costs associated with: cancer’s first occurrence; hospital confinement; radiation and chemotherapy; surgery, whether in the hospital or elsewhere; bone marrow transplants; and cancer screening tests. Because the insurance company realizes that it’s often the expense of cancer that overwhelms people, the cancer care plus coverage also pays cash benefits to be used however it is needed.
Manhattan Insurance Group sells both individual and group disability insurance. Individual disability is available to cover accident only, or accident and sickness. It offers a benefit period of one to two years and coverage up to $2,000 a month. The group disability plan has a partial disability feature, multiple benefit periods, and up to $6,000 a month coverage.
MIG’s essential benefits plan is a medical indemnity plan. This means that, as a plan subscriber, you would receive a specific cash amount back for a specific medical service, regardless of what you were charged by the medical provider. The essential benefits plan allows you to receive outpatient and in-patient care; surgery; hospital admission; ambulance coverage; allergy shots; immunizations; and a prescription drug benefit of $2 million over your lifetime. The plan pays the cash directly to the insured, as reimbursement for the medical bills.
As far as life insurance policies, Manhattan Insurance Group offers term, whole, and universal. Its critical protection and recovery coverage helps provide a policyholder with the cash needed to overcome a critical health event, such as a stroke or heart attack. The company also offers 24-hour accident insurance, which covers you in the case of an accident at any time, and anywhere in the world.
