About HD SecureShield

HD SecureShield gives members access to valuable resources, especially designed to assist when unexpected emergencies arise. In addition to the non-insured benefits* provided by The Health Depot Association, a SecureShield membership also provides members with access to supplemental Group Accident Only Insurance benefits, underwritten by Guarantee Trust Life Insurance Company.

Having supplemental insurance can help in the event of an accident or critical illness. Best of all, members can use the cash benefits however they choose – for out-of-pocket medical expenses, transportation costs, help with child care, meals or other household duties or even to pay routine monthly bills.

*Association non-insured benefits vary by level. Consult member guide for more details.

1 Accident Medical Expense Benefit does not pay for reinjury or complications of an injury caused or contributed to by a condition that existed before the Accident.

This benefit pays in excess of any other insurance coverage you may have for the expenses you are charged by a hospital, doctor, or certain other charges, up to a maximum of the amount listed if you are injured in a Covered Accident. GTL will pay based on the Reasonable and Customary charges for Medically Necessary treatment of a Covered Injury incurred by the Covered Person resulting from a Covered Accident, after the $250.00 Deductible is satisfied. The first treatment or service must occur within 60 days of the Covered Accident and all subsequent treatments must be incurred within 12 Months of the Covered Accident. Benefits will be paid up to the amount stated in the Schedule of Benefits.

The Accidental Death & Dismemberment benefit pays the amount shown if you suffer a Covered Loss resulting from a Covered Accident. If you sustain more than one Covered Loss as a result of the same Covered Accident, only the largest available benefit will be paid. If the loss results in death, benefits will only be paid under the Loss of Life benefit provision.

2 Accidental Death and Dismemberment Benefits are provided as shown in the Schedule of Benefits and pays the member or beneficiary up to the benefit amount listed for the member’s death or loss of certain body parts in a Covered Accident.

Percentages relate to the Principal Sum benefit as shown above for the Primary, Spouse and Child(ren).
