Some general highlights about Aflac:
- Aflac pays cash directly to the insured to help offset any out-of-pocket expenses incurred during sickness or injury (e.g., co-payments and deductibles, lost wages, mortgage/rent, car payments, transportation and lodging, special equipment)
- Aflac’s benefits are supplemental and do not coordinate with any health insurance benefits
- Employees pay premiums through payroll deduction, with pre-tax dollars for most plans
