CANCER, HEART ATTACK & STROKE PRODUCT*
Cancer, heart attack and stroke are some of the most common major illnesses that we face as a nation. When you take even a moment to reflect, it doesn’t take long to recall a friend, neighbor or even a family member who has experienced one of these illnesses. While these illnesses certainly take a physical toll, they often also go hand-in-hand with a substantial financial burden. Nearly 60 percent of expenses associated with a major illness are not directly related to medical expenses that would be covered by most health insurance plans — things like lost wages, child care costs and increased transportation expenses.#2 These extra, unplanned expenses are what Platinum Supplemental Insurance products are specifically designed to off-set. Our polices are designed to pay you directly if you or any other covered individual in your family experiences one of these major illnesses.
