May is recognized as Stroke Awareness Month, a time dedicated to raising awareness about strokes and promoting education on prevention and early detection. Stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to the brain is disrupted, leading to potential long-term disabilities or even death.
Stroke is a leading cause of disability and mortality worldwide. Here are some eye-opening statistics that highlight the significance of this condition:
Every year, approximately 15 million people worldwide suffer a stroke.
Stroke is responsible for around 5.5 million deaths annually.
In the United States alone, stroke is the fifth leading cause of death, claiming more than 140,000 lives each year.
Someone in the U.S. has a stroke every 40 seconds.
Stroke affects people of all ages, including infants and children.
Where Does Critical Illness Coverage Come In?
Given the alarming prevalence and impact of strokes, it is essential to protect yourself and your loved ones from the financial burden that can accompany a stroke diagnosis. Critical illness insurance can be a valuable tool in providing financial security during such challenging times. The benefits of having it include:
Providing financial support through a lump sum payout upon the diagnosis of a stroke. This lump sum can be used to cover medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and other financial obligations, allowing individuals to focus on their recovery without worrying about financial strain.
Supplementing health insurance because while health insurance may cover certain aspects of stroke treatment, critical illness coverage fills in the gaps by providing additional financial support. It can cover expenses that health insurance might not fully address, such as home modifications, travel costs for specialized treatment, or alternative therapies.
Giving peace of mind not only for yourself but also for your family. It offers a sense of security by ensuring that you have financial support in case of a stroke diagnosis, enabling you to focus on your health and well-being.
Flexibility and customization of the coverage to fit individual needs and preferences. Depending on the policy, you can choose the coverage amount and additional features that best suit your circumstances.
