Group Catastrophe Major Medical Insurance
Product Information for NY Residents
Group Catastrophe Major Medical Insurance is an AICPA-sponsored plan that enhances your basic health insurance coverage by providing up to $1,000,000 in additional lifetime benefits. Once your medical costs within a 24 month period exceed the greater of the deductible you select or the maximum benefit your primary health insurance will pay, this insurance covers up to 100% of your eligible reasonable and customary medical charges with limited exceptions.
If you have a traditional fee-for-service plan, an individual or managed care plan, or even Medicare, that plan most likely has caps or limits on its benefits. One catastrophic non-job related injury or sickness can all too quickly use up those basic health care coverage benefits, leaving you with tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars of medical costs to pay - costs that likely can only be met by using your existing savings and assets.

How the plan works
After your deductible is met this plan will pay up to $1 million of eligible reasonable and customary expenses for medical treatment over a three-year benefit period after your basic health insurance limits have been reached. The plan will also pay for medical expenses should you choose to consult a non-network provider for care. This can be a valuable benefit should you want to receive highly specialized care, such as cancer treatment, at a particular institution.
All AICPA members in good standing who have a basic health care plan individually or through work or Medicare Parts A and B are eligible to enroll. You can also enroll your lawful spouse and unmarried children under age 30, as long as they are also covered under a basic health care plan or Medicare Parts A and B.
You become eligible for benefits when your medical costs within a 24 month period exceed the deductible you have chosen - the greater of the benefits paid by your basic plan or $25,000 or $50,000. (To help determine which deductible amount is right for you, check your current health care plan to find out its caps and limits.) In most cases, the benefits that have been paid by your basic plan can satisfy your deductible for this additional coverage.
To enroll, you must be a resident of New York. You must also be able to perform the normal activities of a person of like age and sex, with like occupation or retired status on the date your insurance is to take effect. If you are not, such insurance will take effect on the day you resume such activities.
