MetLife Inc. has started marketing business travel accident insurance.[@@]

The product provides employer-paid coverage for employees injured in accidents while traveling in the United States or abroad on employment-related business.

Employers can cover all employees or specific classes of employees, and the product can provide coverage for employees who are commuting to, from or between business or client locations, according to MetLife Inc., New York.

MetLife will be selling the new business travel accident coverage together with optional travel assistance services from an outside company.
