Aflac: Critical illness coverage without the fowl foul play
In case you haven’t heard, health insurance has a dirty little secret: that secret is it doesn’t cover everything. And in the case of a serious medical condition, such as a heart attack, a stroke, or kidney failure, you might be astonished to find out just how much your primary insurance policy may not cover.
That’s why there’s Aflac critical illness insurance. If you or a loved one ever comes down with a critical illness, Aflac will come flapping in fast with cash benefits that you can use to help pay for your deductibles, copays, and other out-of-pocket costs. You can’t always predict the future, but with Aflac, you can help protect yourself and your family.
What exactly is critical illness insurance from Aflac?
Think of critical illness insurance like vitamin supplements. You get most of your nutrients from the food you eat, and supplements help fill in the holes.
Likewise, where your major medical insurance takes care of the bulk of your costs following a diagnosis, your critical illness policy from Aflac helps with your uncovered expenses. Such expenses may include things like coinsurance, deductibles, copayments, or even costs associated with maintaining your standard of living. After all, just because you’re sick, that doesn’t mean your other bills stop coming.
