Boston Scientific ("BSC") offers employer paid Basic Life and Accidental Death & Dismemberment ("AD&D") coverage, as well as a group discount on employee-paid Voluntary Employee Life, Dependent Life and Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance.

Purchasing additional life or AD&D insurance, over and above the Boston Scientific employer paid 1x basic life and AD&D coverage can help lend greater financial security and peace of mind. Without enough life insurance coverage, a premature death is more likely to exert a major or devastating impact on financial security, lifestyle and savings.

It's important to consider life events that could cause you to need more protection as your financial commitments and lifestyle change. Getting married, having children, buying a home — these are all events that could call for adding more life insurance protection to your portfolio. You are also given the opportunity to elect or increase your voluntary life insurance plans annually during BSC's open enrollment period.
