"Until they're having to cope with the situation, they don't realize the financial dilemma that these expenses can present. Many families resort to using savings or credit cards to cover these expenses. This strategy quickly backfires as expenses continue to rise compounded by interest, which leaves the family in ever deepening financial debt."

Important Facts about Critical Illness Insurance and Disability Insurance

  • Group critical illness insurance is an affordable complement to disability and medical plans, such as high deductible health plans.
  • Disability income payments generally begin a few months after a disabling event. Most expenses related with serious illnesses like stroke are encountered up front as part of initial recovery and critical illness insurance can help provide needed financial support during this time.

When coping with a major illness people likely incur bills above and beyond what they are normally used to because of things like a loved one's time off from work, travel to treatment centers and medically necessary home modifications.
