Voluntary Group Critical Illness
Devastating Illness Happens More Often Than We Think
- Approximately every 34 seconds, an American has a coronary event.1
- On average, every 40 seconds, someone in the United States has a stroke.2
The cost of recovering from a critical illness can be financially devastating. Many employers could be faced with increasing major medical deductibles and coinsurance limits, which means higher out-of-pocket costs for employees when they suffer a critical illness—and need their benefits most. In addition to lost wages, employees can face these expenses:
- Deductibles and coinsurance
- Travel to and from treatment facilities
- Lodging expenses while staying at a treatment facility
- Additional childcare or adult daycare expenses
- Experimental treatment
