Lasso Plus HIP

Insurance with Financial Reassurance

Protect your budget from unexpected hospital costs

Hospital stays can be expensive, and can quickly extend beyond your budget. A hospital indemnity plan, or HIP, is an optional, supplemental policy that helps pay for covered hospitalizations. Combined with the Lasso Healthcare MSA, our HIP provides additional financial coverage of the MSA's member responsibility amount.

MSA + HIP = A Good Combo

Medicare MSAs and HIPs can be good complements to each other.

Let's consider an MSA...

Medicare A/B costs...
under deductible = member
above deductible = plan

MSA members are financially responsible for all costs until reaching their deductible amount. Then, the plan pays for 100% of any additional Medicare-covered expense.

That's a relief!

This gives members assurance that their financial responsibility for Medicare A/B services is capped at the plan deductible amount, should they be faced with a catastrophic health event.

Member Responsibility

Members can use the MSA deposit toward their health costs and deductible. They will need to use some out-of-pocket funds, too, in order to reach the deductible. We call that the member responsibility amount.

Supplemental Insurance

We encourage MSA members to plan for how they’ll cover their member responsibility amount before enrolling. It's usually a combination of income plus assets plus supplemental insurance policies, but can be different for each member.

Focus on healing
not on
figuring out finances

Finding out, in the midst of a major health event, that you lack the funds to cover the member responsibility portion can cause undue stress at an already stressful time.

A HIP is a supplemental plan that can help pay hospitalization-related expenses, particularly those incurred prior to reaching the MSA deductible, in the member responsibility space.
