Cancer and Critical Illness
The good news is that with modern medicine, such critical illnesses as cancer, heart disease and stroke are survivable conditions.
The bad news is, the care that will save your life is very expensive. That has a lot to do with the fact that, according to the American Association for Critical Illness Insurance, medical expenses were responsible for 60 percent of all bankruptcies across the nation in 2007 – and 78 percent of those folks had health insurance.
That’s why you might want to consider insurance especially designed to cover cancer and other critical illnesses.
Critical illness insurance can pay a lump-sum cash payment to cover expenses associated with a condition covered by your policy.
