Cover unexpected employee medical events with UnitedHealthcare Benefit Ally

UnitedHealthcare Benefit AllyTM provides fully insured 100+ groups with financial support in the event of a covered unexpected medical event.

Benefit Ally combines Supplemental Health benefits – Accident Protection Plan (APP), Critical Illness Protection Plan (CIPP) and Hospital Indemnity Protection Plan (HIPP) – with Medical benefits, and pays covered employees directly in the event of an eligible accident, critical illness or hospitalization, like:

  • Emergency room visits related to an accident
  • Cancer
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Hospital or intensive care unit admissions or stays

About Benefit Ally
Benefit Ally offers a simplified experience for both the customer and member. By bundling Supplemental Health products with Medical plans, members may receive additional financial support for unexpected medical events.  

Benefit Ally helps customers and members in the following ways:

Customer: Benefit Ally streamlines the administrative process for customers by bundling existing Supplemental Health products with Medical plans and offers this as a single package to the customer (e.g., single quote, invoice, etc.).
Employee/member: Benefit Ally simplifies the member’s experience by automating the claims payment of Supplemental Health benefits; the member automatically receives a Supplemental Health benefit check when a qualifying event/diagnosis is identified (via medical claims).

Benefit Ally – Value versus Benefit Ally – Enhanced 
Benefit Ally is available as two different packages: “Benefit Ally – Value” and “Benefit Ally – Enhanced.” While the Supplemental Health benefits covered in each package are identical, the member payouts differ. For example:

  • Benefit Ally – Value: Pays the member $3,000 for a cancer diagnosis 
  • Benefit Ally – Enhanced: Pays the member $4,000 for a cancer diagnosis

UnitedHealthcare Benefit AllyTM offers Accident Protection, Critical Illness, and Hospital Indemnity products provided by UnitedHealthcare Insurance Company. Each product provides separate limited benefits. Accident Protection, Critical Illness and Hospital Indemnity coverages are NOT considered “minimum essential coverage” under the Affordable Care Act and therefore none of the products satisfy the mandate to have health insurance coverage. Failure to have other health insurance coverage may be subject to a tax penalty. Please consult a tax advisor. The policies have exclusions, limitations, reductions of benefits, and terms under which the policy may be continued in force or discontinued. For costs and complete details of the coverage, call or write your insurance agent or the company. These products are not available in all states. UnitedHealthcare Insurance Company is located in Hartford, CT.
