Coverage for Supplemental Hospital Insurance

Supplemental Hospital Insurance through MetLife can help you be better prepared by providing you with a payment to use as you see fit if you experience a covered event and meet the policy and certificate requirements. Typically a flat amount is paid for hospital admission and a per-day amount is paid for each day of a covered hospital stay, from the very first day of your stay. This payment can help you focus more on getting back on track and less on the extra expenses an accident or illness may bring. With MetLife, you’ll have a choice of two comprehensive plans which provide payments in addition to any other insurance payments you may receive. See details in Plan Summary below.

Features include:

  • Two plan level options available
  • Benefits are paid directly to you and are in addition to Purdue's medical and disability benefits.
  • Family coverage options
  • Convenience of payroll deduction
