Raise Your Alzheimer’s Awareness
November is Alzheimer’s Awareness and Family Caregivers Month. Learn more about this far-reaching disease and how your Platinum-marketed policy can help protect your financial security in case of an Alzheimer’s diagnosis
Alzheimer’s disease ranks high on the list of critical illnesses affecting individuals and their families within the U.S. More than five million Americans currently live with the disease—that’s 1 in 10 people 65 and older. And, according to the Alzheimer’s Association, the number of affected Americans could triple over the next 30 years.
Alzheimer’s disease has far-reaching effects. According to the Alzheimer’s Association alz.org®, more than 15 million Americans provide unpaid care for people with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. In 2016, these caregivers provided an estimated 18.2 billion hours of care valued at over $230 billion.1
At Platinum Supplemental Insurance, most policies we now market include large lump-sum benefits for a critical illness diagnosis, such as Alzheimer’s, to help protect families from such difficult financial circumstances. These benefits can be used to address costly out-of-pocket expenses, such as deductibles, copays, travel costs or day-to-day care.
If you have questions about the benefits in a policy you currently own, call our friendly, knowledgeable customer service team at 1-855-637-6550.
