That’s the average cost of a nearly five-day hospital stay these days.2 What if you become sick or hurt and are hospitalized

Sure, your current health insurance plan or Medicare will pay part of the bill. But there are deductibles, copayments, and benefit limitations that most plans don’t pay.

Then there are all the little extras no plan pays for … like gas and lodging for family members to visit, medical and other supplies to help you recover, homemaker services, and lost income … All of which could add up to BIG bucks coming out of your pocket.

With the Good Sam Club’s Life and Health Services Hospital Income Insurance Protection, you’ll have a powerful “back-up” plan in place that can provide you with additional cash coverage when you’re hospitalized. Learn more by visiting the Good Sam Life and Health Services website.
