Additional Benefits offered by Aflac

Gettysburg College is always looking for ways to protect the financial security of its employees. To help you prepare financially; Gettysburg College is making available, through Aflac, supplemental benefits to help fill these needs.

In the event of a serious illness or accident, your major medical insurance may reimburse your doctor, the hospital, and other providers.  But you may be responsible for unreimbursed expenses.  These may include lost pay for you or a family member, transportation, deductibles, co-insurance, and prescriptions.
