MedMutual Accident and Critical Illness FAQs
Who can be covered under the MedMutual Accident or Accident Plus plan?
Medical Mutual offers coverage for individuals 18 to 64 years old, their spouses and any dependents. Eligible individuals must live in Ohio at least six months during the year.
What critical illnesses are covered under the Accident Plus plans?
MedMutual Accident Plus plans provide coverage for the following critical conditions: heart attack, coronary artery bypass, stroke, life-threatening cancer, carcinoma in situ, kidney failure and major organ transplant.
Do I need accident and critical illness coverage if I have a life insurance?
No, but accident and critical illness coverage is different than life insurance. Accident and critical illness plans help pay the expenses that come from unexpected illnesses, while life insurance protects you and your family from financial hardship if you were to pass away. By combining accident and critical illness coverage with a life insurance policy you can be better protected.
Do pre-existing condition limitations apply to accident and critical illness coverage?
Yes. Pre-existing condition limitations apply to accident and critical illness coverage. A pre-existing condition is an illness or injury for which you received treatment within a specified period of time prior to your effective date of coverage under Accident or Accident Plus plans. If you have a pre-existing condition, your coverage for that specific condition will begin after the following timeframe:
- Critical illness – 12 months
- Accident – 3 months
Any accident or critical illness that is not considered a pre-existing condition will be covered as soon as your coverage is effective.
