In addition to standard medical, dental, and vision benefits, Medical Solutions offers seven voluntary benefits — including short-term and long-term disability — to help protect you, your family, and your pets.

Because we’ve always got your back, Medical Solutions offers seven voluntary traveler benefit options! Read on for more info on these voluntary benefits and how you can take advantage of them as a Medical Solutions travel nurse or travel allied health professional.

Short-Term Disability Insurance

We hope you always enjoy good health and freedom from catastrophe, but this benefit offers you important financial protection in case you’re ever in an accident and suffer a disabling injury. If you’re hurt and become unable to work, you’ll directly receive cash benefits that will help you cover medical costs and/or be able to continue paying your bills. In the event you need them and qualify, these benefits will be paid to you on a monthly basis, letting you use the money however you need!

Long-Term Disability Insurance

This benefit can help protect you financially should you ever need to recover from an illness or disabling injury for a long period of time. After a waiting period, our long-term disability insurance through Cigna provides income protection to age 65 with a reduced benefit duration after age 65, monthly payments to you, and the option to spend the benefit as you see fit.

Critical Illness Insurance

Again, we wish you eternal good health. But, life happens, and that can sometimes include illness. This benefit helps protect you financially should you be diagnosed with a critical illness. If you are diagnosed with a covered critical illness, you’ll be paid cash benefits and can use that money to cover your out of pocket costs however you see fit. These benefits are also available for your spouse and/or child(ren).

Accident Insurance

Accidents happen, but just because your body takes a hit that doesn’t mean your wallet should! Our accident insurance through Voya helps financially protect you and your dependents when unexpected accidents occur by providing gap protection to cover out-of-pocket expenses due to unforeseen events, a lump-sum payment made directly to you, and the option to spend the benefit as you see fit, whether that’s on medical equipment, daily expenses, bills, or caregiving assistance.

Hospital Indemnity Insurance

An unexpected hospital stay can really take a financial toll. Our hospital indemnity insurance through Voya helps reduce the financial impact on you and your dependents when unexpected health-related events occur by providing income and gap protection to cover out-of-pocket expenses and lost wages, a lump-sum payment made directly to you, and the option to spend the benefit as you see fit, whether that’s on medical equipment, daily expenses, bills, or caregiving assistance.

Voluntary Life Insurance

What would happen to your loved ones if you died tomorrow? With our voluntary life insurance through Cigna, you can rest easy knowing your loved ones will be financially protected in the event of your death. This life insurance policy provides income protection to help your family cover your lost future wages, a lump-sum payment made to your beneficiaries, and the option to spend the benefit however your loved ones see fit. Depending on the type and amount of coverage you select, you may need to provide evidence of insurability.

Pet Insurance

Pet Insurance Humans love our pets like children, so it’s important to be able to keep them healthy and happy! Our pet insurance through Nationwide helps you give your pets quality health care, no matter the cost, by providing access to any licensed veterinarian in the world, depending on the chosen vendor, and group rates and discounts for pet medical expenses like surgeries, lab fees, routine care, and treatments.

Want to enroll in any of these voluntary benefits or have more questions?

Like your medical, dental, and vision benefits, you have 14 days from the actual start date of your contract to make voluntary benefits elections. If you elect one of these benefits, coverage begins retroactively on the actual start date of your assignment.
