A Chattanooga, Tenn., insurer is giving the workers who buy some of its products more choices.[@@]
The insurer, UnumProvident Corp., is adding options to its voluntary, employee-paid critical illness policies and its employee-paid individual short-term disability insurance policies.
The critical illness policy now gives workers a choice of paying for base coverage, which protects against risks such as heart attacks, strokes and kidney failure, or enhanced coverage, which protects against the base risks and cancer.
