This is an accidental death & dismemberment (AD&D) insurance plan. It pays a benefit based upon a schedule of benefits in the event of accidental death, dismemberment, or permanent total disability as the result of an accident. Individual or family coverage may be purchased in $10,000 increments, with a minimum of $50,000 in coverage to a maximum of 10 times annual salary (up to $750,000).
This is a voluntary, employee paid program and is paid through payroll deduction. Active employees, faculty, and House Staff, regularly scheduled for at least 20 hours per week are eligible to participate and may continue this coverage while on an approved leave of absence provided the appropriate premiums are paid. This coverage terminates at retirement or termination of employment. However, coverage may be converted to an individual policy if requested within thirty-one (31) days of employment end date.
