A critical illness such as stroke, heart attack, or Cancer could strike at any time, with no warning. You may think you’re covered with your existing Health Insurance, but you may not know that illnesses can bring out of pocket expenses that you don’t expect, including co-pays, deductibles, and transportation to treatment centers.
Serious illness is not only something many people experience, it’s an event with serious financial consequences. 9 out of 10 people know someone or have a family member who has a critical illness, and 62% of bankruptcies are the result of medical causes.1
