Thanks to recent medical advances, many people survive heart attacks, strokes, and other serious illnesses. But health care costs and inability to work can cause ﬁnancial stress as income decreases.
USA offers affordable insurance coverage through the workplace. Our Critical Illness insurance policy can reduce the ﬁnancial impact of a major illness!
Financial Impact: Over half (62.1 percent) of all U.S. bankruptcies are caused by soaring medical bills.* An American Journal of Medicine study states that the average person ﬁling bankruptcy earned a middle-income salary and had health insurance, but was ﬁnancially crippled by out-of-pocket expenses for co-payments, deductibles, and non-covered medical services.
The USA Critical Illness Solution can reduce the ﬁnancial impact of a major illness by paying money directly to the primary insured person (employee) when it is most needed. Beneﬁts are provided when an insured person is diagnosed with a speciﬁed critical illness or undergoes a covered procedure, even if he or she is unable to work or has other health insurance coverage. Recipients may use the money as they choose—for example, to pay a home mortgage, clear up debt, or supplement family income so a caregiving spouse can take time off from work.
