The new educational resource, CriticalIllnessPlanning.com officially launched at the end of 2014 with a mission to spread awareness about the lifestyle and financial impacts of a critical illness. The informative content aims to highlight the insurance options available to help protect against unexpected expenses encountered during a major health event.
As medicine and life-saving technologies progress, the average American’s life expectancy will continue to steadily increase. However, most people are not expecting the price tag associated with this new-found longevity.
A recent MetLife survey revealed that many are unaware of what traditional health insurance does NOT cover. Out-of-pocket costs can include soft-costs such as travel, lodging, in-home care or loss of income in addition to hard costs like deductibles, co-pays and out of network expenses . This leaves their assets and lifestyle exposed to substantial financial impact in the event of a critical illness event.
With increasing statistical risks of encountering a critical illness such as cancer, heart attack, or stroke, Americans should be planning ahead financially. However, over 70% of survey respondents had less than $5,000 in savings, leaving many of them just one health event away from serious financial hardship.
Our country’s aging population is beginning to realize this coverage gap. With the help of educational resources like CriticalIllnessPlanning.com, many are finding that Critical Illness Insurance can be the solution to this problem. It can be a great financial tool, but consumers often misunderstand this supplemental insurance product.
In order to help spread awareness about the planning and coverage options available, industry supporters are now developing weekly educational materials for CriticalIllnessPlanning.com. The website includes informative articles, info-graphics and videos, which have been graciously sponsored by American Independent Marketing and GoldenCareUSA; both independently owned insurance agencies.
On the new educational website includes many easy-to-follow tips and recommendations on taking the first steps in creating a proper plan. Visit http://www.criticalillnessplanning.com to download the complementary "Planning Guide" and to get an insurance quote and recommendations from a specialist.
