Critical Illness Statistics

More People are Surviving Critical Illnesses…

Yet people are diagnosed and/or Dying more than ever?

Confusing? The numbers are higher those being diagnosed with cancer is certain. It is within reasonable and conceivable thinking that there are more people dying with cancer than prior, or, chances of that occurring are due to the sheer numbers. With more diagnosed however there are more people living with, or rather surviving cancer as well (good news) and mostly due to medical advancements. Therefore the outcome is more bankruptcies or loss of assets (bad news).

Do you know someone who survived cancer, a heart attack or other critical illnesses? You’re not alone. But did you see how it affected their finances? How did the financial stress affect their recovery — and their family? Survival rates have increased over the years after suffering a critical illness. Will your family survive the financial burden if you were to be diagnosed with a critical illness? Do you have enough money saved up to get your family through your recovery?

Consider this Fact: More than 60% of all bankruptcies are directly tied to medical conditions such as  critical illnesses, and most of these individuals were already covered by traditional health insurance…in the neighborhood of around 80%.
