Group Hospital Income Insurance

Group Hospital Income Insurance  


The Hospital Income Insurance can provide excellent supplemental protection when combined with your basic health insurance coverage. It can provide you with extra pocket money that you can use toward any expenses you want. You can even place it in your savings for when you might need it in the future. Or, use it to help pay your hospital, physician or therapy costs ... the choice is completely up to you!


This insurance lets you select a daily benefit amount of $100, $200, $300, $400 or $500 for each day of a covered hospitalization. You will receive these benefit checks directly (unless you specify otherwise). You can collect as much as $365,000 per year in cash benefits.

Answers about the program, including eligibility, options, customer service and more.
  • When do benefits begin?

    Your benefits begin on the first day of a covered confinement in a hospital or skilled nursing facility and last up to 365 days maximum for a single confinement.


    Note: Successive periods of covered stays must be separated by 180 days or more during which the covered person is not confined in a hospital or skilled nursing facility as a results of the same or related injury or sickness. Covered stays separated by less than 180 days as a result of such injury or sickness are considered a continuation of the previous covered stay for the purposes of determining any maximums.

  • Who is eligible?

    As long as you are an active ASME member, under age 80, residing in the U.S. you are eligible to apply for this coverage and not insured under any other Hospital Indemity group policy. Your lawful spouse or domestic partner under age 80, and your unmarried dependent children under age 26 are also eligible.


    Note: If both parents are insured as members, only one parent may request coverage for eligible dependents.

  • Are pre-existing conditions covered?

    A pre-existing condition is any injury, pregnancy or sickness for which a person consulted a doctor, received any medical services or supplies or took any medication during the 12 months (6 months for residents of Montana) immediately before becoming covered under this policy.

    Benefits will not be payable for any confinement due to a pre-existing condition until the earlier of: 12 consecutive months during which the covered person has not consulted a physician, taken medication, or received medical services or supplies, or: 24 months.
  • When does coverage end?

    Your coverage will remain in force as long as you remain an active ASME member, you pay your premiums when due, you don’t request to end your coverage and the group policy is not terminated or modified so you are no longer eligible. There is no termination age with this policy. Insured spouse coverage ends when they cease to be a lawful spouse or when they become an insured member. Insured dependents can retain their coverage as long as they meet the dependent status requirements and you remain insured. The Group Policy may be terminated by ASME or by New York Life Insurance Company. Coverage for your dependent children will end when they reach age 26.
  • How do I pay my premiums?

    Premiums can be paid via electronic fund transfer. You can pay monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually.
