How is Aflac different from major medical insurance?

Aflac policies are considered HIPAA excepted benefits because they are not major medical health coverage. Being excepted, these benefits are generally excluded from rules and regulations designed for major medical coverage.

How Aflac can help

Policy icon

Aflac insurance policies don’t replace comprehensive health insurance coverage. Supplemental insurance policies are considered HIPAA excepted benefits, which are excluded from most of the Affordable Care Act’s market reforms.

  • Aflac is for specified injuries, illnesses or disabilities. For example: a broken arm, heart attack, cancer or hospital stay.
  • Aflac helps cover out-of-pocket costs that major medical insurance was never designed to cover. Even with major medical insurance, potential out-of-pocket costs associated with illness or injury can be considerably high.

Aflac cash benefits can be used for everyday living expenses such as rent or monthly mortgage, utilities, groceries, childcare or to cover out-of-pocket medical expenses.
