Beware - Aflac only pays out for certain accidents
GLENDORA, CALIFORNIA -- I have the accident policy from Aflac for my whole family that essentially amounts to supplemental insurance over and above my regular Blue Cross plan. My 8 year old son broke out some front teeth doing flips on our trampoline this past year. A clear accident. We rushed him to the hospital to stop the bleeding, and then were sent to an orthodon'tist to handle the dental trauma. After my Blue Cross paid, I was out $3,800 out of pocket. Upon submitting all paperwork and doctor's reports, Aflac only paid $105, citing the accident required dental treatment, which they do not cover. The agent stated, "If your son had broken his arm, we would have paid $3,500 for this claim, but broken teeth, only $105". Thanks Aflac for nothing! A complete waste of money.
