How Critical Illness Can Plans Can Help After a Cardiovascular-Related Medical Event

Cancer, major organ failure, paralysis; it’s difficult for anyone to imagine being diagnosed with one of these serious conditions—conditions for which many critical illness plans include benefits.


How critical illness plans work


Heart conditions, however, can hit closer to home. Consider this:

Critical illness plans sold through healthedeals.com include lump-sum benefits for cardiovascular conditions and procedures including:

♥ Heart attack

♥ Coronary bypass

♥ Angioplasty

♥ Stroke

You can use these lump-sum payments for medical bills, experimental treatments, childcare, transportation, living expenses and more—you get to decide.

It’s a good time to remember that critical illness plans can help them pay for out-of-pocket medical bills should one of the above cardiovascular incidents occur, possibly helping you and those they love have more time to focus on getting well.
