According to a June article by the New York Times an estimated three-quarters of people who are pushed into personal bankruptcy by medical problems actually had insurance when they became sick or were injured, just not enough. But that doesn’t have to be the case for you. As an ABA member, you are eligible to apply for the ABE-sponsored Excess Major Medical Plan II. This high deductible medical plan has affordable monthly premium rates (can be as low as $12/month depending on your age and selected deductible) and can supplement your basic health insurance in the event of a catastrophic injury or illness. With coverage for eligible hospital bills, home health care, doctor visits and even out-of-network care, once the deductible is met, this plan may provide peace of mind when you need it most.
