Who Need Personal Accident (PA) Insurance?
If you already have life insurance and a medical and health insurance policies, do you still need PA?
It depends. In all honesty, there are some of us who need it and some of us who are lucky enough to never need it. But then, how will you ever know? Accidents do not happen while announcing themselves, they just happen.
The difference between PA insurance and life insurance or medical and health insurance, is the cause of injury or death. PA insurance does not cover injury or death due to natural causes, such as illnesses like life insurance does. In the same way, life insurance doesn’t cover for accidents that do not result in death.
This is why a personal accident policy works as a supplement to life insurance. To protect you and your family in the event of an accident that renders you unable to generate income or worse, causes your death. This is why it’s a good idea to have both PA and life insurance – to cover your loved ones no matter what happens.
PA and life insurances cover you in these instances but if you’re injured severely, you’ll still need medical and health insurance to take care of the medical bills for treatments that are required.
