The Accident Protection Plan provides coverage if an accident occurs, on or off the job. This insurance is designed to protect your finances by helping you pay for those unexpected costs associated with an accidental injury. LSU partners with UnitedHealthcare to provide you and your family with valuable accident protection. This benefit covers a wide range of common injuries and covered accidents. If you or a covered family member become injured, Accident Protection will pay you a direct cash benefit. The amount of money you receive depends on the type and severity of the injury and can be used any way you choose.
The Accident Protection plan includes a wellness benefit of $50 per year ($100 if covering a spouse) if you have certain health screening tests, such as a mammogram, colonoscopy, or certain blood tests. You must file a wellness claim form in order to receive the payment. More information can be found on the flyer.
