Statistics has shown that 1 in 3 American Citizens are projected to fall victim of cancerous ills. Due to the ongoing rise in illnesses, including newfound diseases the companies are designing policies that will offer families and individuals the coverage they will need in difficult times. Not one single person on the face of the earth can say if they will be the 1 in 3, therefore, coverage now is better than waiting until it is too late.
The current policies that are making the news today are the Critical Illness Plans that are often offered with Life Insurance. The policy will cover transportation to and from hospitals if inpatient or outpatient is needed, including the cost the family or mate will need to visit. The coverage will also cover medical treatment and procedures, including in-home care, nurse visits, vacations, car and home modifications, and more. Since our air is filled with contaminations that are claiming health everyday, we can never feel it is too late to get coverage. Many of the policies available, including Terminal Ill, Critical Illness and Life Insurance are often affordable, making it easy to cover an entire family.
The different polices also include, Single Plans and Joint Policies. It is important to understand that Single Polices are often more expensive than Joint Policies, however the Single policies will cover each member of your household if you fall ill and/or die. If you have a Joint Policy and die, then the additional members will have no resource for burial expenses, or other related costs.
In spite of your financial circumstances, having Life combined with Critically Illness coverage can save you a bundle later. Therefore, if you can only afford minimal coverage now, why not, since later you will thank your self for taking the time to consider all details of illness and death, including the survivors if you should pass. To give you an overall idea of price now vs. price later we will consider the following: Let’s say you (we hope not) become one of the 1 in 3 Americans that fall ill to cancer. If this should happen, you will need long-term treatment, including Chemotherapy. You may need to stay at the hospital for a week or longer. First, the cost of medical treatment without the extras is expensive, and this expense does not include medicines.
For treatment for one month, you will pay thousands of dollars splitting the cost between medicines and physician/hospital fees. You will also pay additional thousands for treatment for cancer, plus you will loose money since you are not able to work any longer. Your family will need money to cover visits, possible stays at hotels, food, and so forth and this does not include the cost of living. You may need equipment that will cost a few more thousand dollars or more to recover from the disease. Furthermore, if your treatment is successful you may need money to cover the cost of recovery and checkups to make sure the cancer remains inactive. As you can see, the few thousands just soared beyond ten grand, and if you should die, we have factored in the burial expenses, which are going to be another thousand of dollars.
Still, we haven’t reviewed mortgage, credit cards, personal loans and any other debts that are activate before and during death. Therefore, around $20 more or less now per month can save you and your family later if you become ill and/or die. It makes sense to combine Critical Illness and Life Insurance, since both Policies change slightly offering different types of coverage. You definitely want to consider Critical Illness Coverage since these policies consider more when it comes to illness than Life insurance polices do. Life Insurance will often cover burial, which if the policyholder dies then the large sum provided will probably payoff the burial expenses leaving nil left. The Critical Illness will provide the extra cash if the policyholder falls ill or dies.
