Welcome to APHA Xtras’ Newest Addition!

As a Paint Horse owner, you’re living an active lifestyle that revolves around your passions: horses, family and friends. You really don’t have a whole lot of time to spare worrying about your health insurance coverage and what is and isn’t included. But you know there’s a gap between what your insurer covers and your out-of-pocket expenses.

That’s where APHA’s newest Xtras partner can help. We’ve teamed up with Washington National Insurance Company to offer you a solution—ACCIDENTassure®. Accidental injury insurance that helps bridge the gap between your basic coverage and your real costs, minimizing the financial impact from unexpected expenses.

Even if you’ve never been seriously injured in the past, every second of every day someone is disabled from an accidental injury. In fact, one out of eight Americans—nearly 39 million people—receive medical attention for nonfatal injuries annually.¹

If that happened to you, could you cover you and your family’s out-of-pocket expenses as the result of an accident?

  • Co-pays
  • Deductibles
  • Travel expenses
  • Medical appliances
  • Rent or mortgage
  • Groceries and more

You can’t prevent every accident—but you can protect yourself and your family with ACCIDENTassure®:

  • Cash benefits paid directly to you, regardless of any other insurance you may have, to spend as you see fit.2
  • No lifetime maximums on benefits.
  • Rates won’t increase if you use the policy.3
  • Cover your family for less than $1.75 a day or yourself for less than $1 a day.

Why did we partner with Washington National Insurance Company?

First, they’ve been around for more than 100 years. Second, our values align. They focus on providing customers a positive and meaningful experience every time, with a dedication to service, meeting customers’ needs and striving for excellence in everything they do, just like APHA. And third, the valuable benefits they offer can help protect you and your loved ones from the financial hardship that so often comes with accidents. And we don’t want anything to come between you and your love for your Paint Horses.
