A Verizon Wireless spokesperson confirmed to IGN that they have provided free smartphone health insurance to employees, as per a recent report.
The coverage is offered through Verizon Wireless HealthCare, and is not a one-time offer.
Employees can choose from one of three tiers: Health Insurance (up to $500 per month for an individual), Personal Insurance (Up to $5,000 per year for an employer), and Family Coverage (up the line for a maximum of $50,000 annually).
While the coverage is good for both employers and employees, Verizon also makes sure that it’s available for employees who are new to the company and/or are not qualified to qualify for their own coverage.

Verizon has also made it easier for you to get a smartphone by adding a free Verizon SIM card to your Verizon Wireless account.

Verizon HealthCare also offers smartphone coverage through its “Verizon Mobile Health Plan,” which includes a $50 monthly premium.
However, the service does not include any coverage beyond the health insurance.
