A hospital stay can heal the body but could break the bank

Even with health insurance, hospitalization costs can add up, thanks to high deductibles, copays, out-of-network fees and everyday expenses while hospitalized. Hospital indemnity insurance can take some of the sting out of a hospital stay, helping employees focus their attention where it needs to be: getting better.
