Nonduplication Of Benefits

Nonduplication of Benefits


Nonduplication of Benefits — a provision in a health insurance or disability policy designed to eliminate the possibility of an insured receiving benefits greater than the economic loss suffered. Most long-term disability income policies offset the benefits paid in accordance with other benefits to which the disabled claimant is entitled. Similarly, most health insurance policies contain provisions to avoid duplication of benefits when more than one policy applies.
