Hospital and doctor fixed indemnity insurance is also often called fixed-benefit insurance or fee for service insurance. That’s because this type of insurance pays you a fixed amount of money for specific services covered by the plan.
What is indemnity insurance?
A fixed indemnity plan like Health ProtectorGuard is much different than a major medical insurance plan.
A regular major medical health insurance plan pays for all or a percentage of covered expenses after you meet a deductible, pay a copay or reach a certain amount of out-of-pocket costs. Put simply, for qualified expenses, in most cases, you pay first, and then your insurance company covers the rest.
A fixed indemnity plan offers limited benefits and is meant to supplement a more traditional health insurance plan. Indemnity insurance essentially flips how you are paid when compared to major medical insurance. You or your provider are paid a predetermined fixed benefit for certain health care expensesyou have incurred, and then you are on your own for the rest.
Unexpected medical bills can disrupt even the healthiest home budgets. It can help you deal with the unexpected by paying you or your provider a preset benefit amount for some of the most common medical costs you and your loved ones might face.

Today, approximately 90 percent of U.S. residents have health insurance with significant gains in health coverage occurring over the past five years. Health insurance facilitates access to care and is associated with lower death rates, better health outcomes, and improved productivity. Despite recent gains, more than 28 million individuals still lack coverage, putting their physical, mental, and financial health at risk.
Meaningful health care coverage is critical to living a productive, secure and healthy life. U.S. residents obtain health coverage from a variety of private and public sources, such as through their employers or direct purchase on the individual market (private sources), as well as through the Medicare, Medicaid, or Veterans Affairs programs (public sources).
The number of people with health insurance has increased significantly in recent years, with nearly 20 million individuals newly insured. Most of these individuals were able to enroll in coverage offered through the Medicaid program, their employer, or the individual market as a result of coverage programs and insurance market reforms authorized by the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
