The LRFA Hospital Supplemental Cash Plan helps members by providing direct monetary compensation for each day of your inpatient hospital stay. Since payments are made directly to you, they can help with daily living expenses that occur when you are out of work due to a medical need. This benefit also applies if you are hospitalized overnight while traveling abroad. Benefits from this plan are paid directly to the member or to a member authorized person, regardless of any other health coverage the individual may have.

Benefit Plan Groups
The LRFA Hospital Supplemental Cash Plan consists of 5 groups:
- Group I
- Group II
- Group III
- Special A
- Special B
Each group provides a different level of maximum benefit payment.
What Is Covered
This plan provides monetary compensation for each day of hospital stay, starting with the first day of inpatient stay (Groups I, II, III) or second day of inpatient stay (Groups A & B). The member may also receive compensation up to four (4) weeks after being discharged from the hospital if hospitalization was a result of an accidental injury. If the accidental injury results in out-patient care, the member is eligible for benefits up to two (2) weeks with a written confirmation of disability from the physician.
If a member of group I, II or III suffers the loss of his/her hand, foot or sight, this plan will cover each loss with the following one time benefits, shown in the middle column below.
