American Heart Month
Every year, about 965,000 Americans have a heart attack – 660,000 for the first time…
A critical illness such as a heart attack, stroke or major organ failure can impact anyone, from the least health-conscious to the most fit. Every 34 seconds, someone has a heart-related event, and every 40 seconds, another person has a stroke. Heredity and lifestyle affect your risk factors, but even if you’re in perfect health, life can change in an instant.
When a critical illness strikes, major expenses often follow. Health insurance may cover some of your medical costs, but not everything. In addition to your day-to-day bills, you could incur costs for treatment and recovery, such as:
- Deductibles and co-pays
- Expenses related to out-of-network treatment and additional medical procedures, such as angioplasty and pacemaker implantation
- Travel, lodging and meals during treatment
- Lifestyle changes that may lead to better health, such as gym memberships and smoking cessation programs
- Rehabilitation and home health services
- Child care
Plus, if you have to take a leave of absence or reduce your work schedule to care for yourself or others, expenses and debt can add up quickly. That’s where critical illness insurance can help. With a financial safety net in place, you can rest assured that a sudden illness won’t jeopardize your finances even if it affects your health.
