What is a bundled plan?
Bundled plans consist of multiple types of health coverage that a consumer can purchase together, typically with one integrated premium. The plans are generally designed to complement each other, or to provide varying benefits.
An example would be a short-term health insurance plan bundled together with a fixed-indemnity health plan. Or a plan with a high deductible bundled together with an accident supplement or critical illness plan. For people with employer-sponsored insurance, the benefits are often bundled to include some combination of health, life, disability, dental, and vision coverage.
