While a health insurance plan will protect you from the high costs of a lengthy hospital stay, it will not make your car or house payment if; you become ill and cannot work for a long period of time.
Even though we do our best to maintain a healthy lifestyle, the possibility of suffering a critical illness before age 65 remains a reality. While the chances of surviving a critical illness are greater than ever, living with that kind of condition can create severe financial hardships if you are not financially protected. It is important that you know the statistics…
Every day over 3,600 Americans are diagnosed with cancer, and over 3,200 Americans suffer a new or recurrent heart attack.
Each year, about 700,000 Americans experience strokes, and 70% survive!
When a critical illness such as cancer, heart attack or stroke occurs, it places a tremendous emotional strain on the family,
sometimes accompanied by an overwhelming financial burden.
