The holidays are over, and open enrollment season is wrapping up. You’ve selected your major medical plan and 2020 is off to a great start. But don’t sit back and relax quite yet—because you’ve probably got some coverage gaps to fill.
Imagine this: you come down with a serious illness or an accident strikes. You receive medical care in the hospital and miss three weeks of work. You’re back on your feet with a treatment plan, and life moves along.
Yet medical bills start arriving in the mail—and your share of the healthcare costs are exorbitant. In addition to meeting your annual deductible for covered medical expenses, you’re on the hook for all of the non-medical expenses you incurred during the incident, like the extra childcare and stockpile of hospital parking fees. What’s more, you lost income while away from the office.
On top of this, your rent or mortgage payment is due—along with the regular rotation of utility bills—and you still have to fill up the car and put food on the table. You just don’t have the cash on hand to cover everything. If only you had more money in savings…or, better yet, a supplemental insurance policy that delivers cash.
Now is the perfect time to plan ahead for what might happen in the year ahead and ensure your family’s lifestyle is maintained in the event of an injury or illness.
If the scenario above didn’t convince you, consider these statistics:
You simply don’t plan on getting sick, getting into an accident, or receiving a game-changing medical diagnosis. But a medical incident can leave you and your family strapped for cash and unable to meet your financial obligations. Your primary insurance is designed to pay only a portion of medical related costs, but what about the rest?
A supplemental insurance policy will help you avoid devastating your bank balance. There are a range of products available—from accident to specialty illness—that provide additional benefits for the costs associated with covered incidents, costs that your major medical insurance may or may not cover.
Because no two individuals or families are the same, and no two plans are the same, it’s important you take these steps to identify gaps in your existing coverage and assess your peace of mind in the case of the unexpected:
If something happens and you or a family member is unable to work—and medical bills start piling up—the rest of your bills don’t go away. You need something in place to make sure you’re protected when you need it the most. And so you can finally sit back and relax.
