Accident-Only Health Insurance?

Can anyone recommend an "accident only" health insurance plan? i.e, it will cover doctor/hospital costs only in the case of accidental injury? I already have a high deductible BCBS plan --- I'm looking for something even more spartan.

Any insights about car accident related pain?

Any insights about car accident related pain? Disclaimer: (I am NOT getting serious medical advice online) It always seems like someone scolds me for that. I was in a car accident 2 weeks ago. We were going 40 and hit someone who pulled out in front of us. I went to the hospital to get checked out and they did xrays and whatnot and diagnosed me with "Severe Chest Trauma". I felt better progressively for the next few days, but then my chest (and lower back) started hurting slightly more each day up till now which is 2 weeks later. [more inside]

What can we use as corner padding on the edges to protect our parking miscues? [more inside]
