When you have a job and have firmly established yourself as a go-to person for certain types of work or projects, the last thing on your mind is getting laid off. But, unfortunately, layoffs do happen, and often when you least expect them.
Adding to the frustration surrounding losing your job is losing your group health insurance benefits. Without those in place, you will have to pay out-of-pocket in order to cover certain medical costs. These add up quickly, especially during emergency situations.
If you’ve recently lost your job and benefits and require coverage for medical expenses you’ve incurred, there is a solution. The ChoicePlan from Group Medical Services provides replacement insurance coverage with guaranteed acceptance so you can manage your family’s health during gaps in your employment. You can apply for this coverage within 60 days of the loss of your group benefits plan.
The benefits of GMS ChoicePlan include:
Like GMS’s other replacement insurance coverage products, the ChoicePlan is available from most insurance brokers. You may also want to do some additional research beforehand by comparing insurance online before you make your decision.
