Supplemental critical illness/hospital indemnity policies pay you a lump sum that you can use to cover things such as lost wages or experimental treatment.  You can buy supplemental critical illness/hospital indemnity policies even if your doctors aren’t in the network, and you can visit any licensed doctor.  Depending on the product, the employer may allow an employee to run it through payroll and buy it with pre-tax dollars.
