Critical Illness - The 1 In 3 Probability


We all know the statistics right ?

“1 in 3 men will develop a life-threatening cancer”

“A new case of cancer is diagnosed every 4 minutes”

“Every year over 330,000 people in Germany have a heart attack or contract cancer”

“1 in 2 Canadian heart attack victims are under age 65”

“75% of males survive more than 5 years after a heart attack”

Every year in the UK there are 100,000 strokes. 75% are still alive a year later”

Ask yourself the following questions :

  • If you dont have medical insurance - who pays your hospital bills ?
  • who pays for your health care expenses not covered by employer and government plans ?
  • who pays for your additional expenses incurred due to the illness – e.g. travel, child care ?
  • whor replaces your lost income for a spouse or parent to take time off to provide care ?
  • who pays your mortgage and other debt repayment commitments ?
  • if your spouse or partner is diagnosed do you have the financial resource to stop working and provide the care and support desperately needed ?

Still not sure you need critical illness protection ?
