4 The information provided in the Benefits Estimator is illustrative only. Plans may not be available in all states, and benefits may vary by state, coverage, and plan level selected. Policies have limitations and exclusions that may affect benefits payable. The Aflac payout values do not guarantee an amount to be paid for the listed conditions. Benefits paid by Aflac (if any) will depend on the severity of the accident or illness, the physician diagnosis, and the treatment received. The “Aflac Pays You” data is an average of historical payments made to Aflac policyholders/certificateholders who qualified for benefits under their specific plans and does not reflect instances when benefits were not paid for a particular claim. Whether benefits are payable will be determined when a claim is processed. You must be 18 or older to apply for Aflac insurance. Availability varies by product; see your local Aflac agent for details. The out-of-pocket expenses displayed are estimated at 40% of the total medical cost, assuming that average major medical plans cover approximately 60% of the expense. Your major medical coverage may be more or less, and if an individual or family incurs expenses for non-covered benefits, these out-of-pocket expenses may increase potential unexpected costs. You will also need to pay for any limits or exclusions on your benefits which may include the number of refills for certain drugs, visits to certain specialists, or days covered for certain benefits.
