Would you sleep easier knowing you didn’t have to worry about expenses while recovering from illness or injury?
Trauma Insurance….Just what the doctor ordered
Any doctor will tell you that to properly recuperate from illness or accident, the body needs time to rest. But that may be easier said than done when you see the medical bill.
The key ingredients to a full recovery are always much the same, the right medical help; time to recover; and minimal stress. But medical help can be extremely costly and time to recover means time off work – which is also costly. Add them together and the financial burden could be enough to slow recovery – and compound the physical problem.
That may be why trauma insurance (also known as critical injury insurance) has become increasingly popular.
Trauma insurance pays you a tax-free lump sum in the case of a range of life-threatening illnesses or injuries. It helps take away the financial worry and lets you focus on recovery. So when you really need to rest – you can.
“It won’t happen to me…”
Maybe you’re right. Maybe bad things only happen to other people. But that doesn’t mean you want to risk being caught uninsured.
Start early, and get some advice
The number and type of conditions covered by Trauma Insurance can vary, so it is important to look into this before purchasing the cover.
