How critical illness coverage helps workers

Health insurance is expensive, and it doesn't cover all of the costs.

  • Workers contributed an average of $5,588 to family coverage in 2020.1
  • Average family premiums have increased at least twice as fast as wages since 2010.2
  • 31% of covered workers have a high-deductible plan.2
  • Cost is the No. 1 barrier for employers regarding benefits.3

Critical illness coverage helps with expenses health insurance doesn't cover if workers experience:

  • Cancer: 1.8 million new patients a year.4
  • Stroke: 795,000 cases a year.5
  • Major organ transplant: 36,000 a year.6
  • Kidney failure: 750,000 cases a year.7

Even a $5,000 benefit payment can make a big difference when it comes to treatment and recovery expenses.

  • A treadmill to help with rehabilitation.8
  • 197 Uber rides to health care appointments.9
  • 33 home visits with a registered dietitian.10
  • Meeting the minimum family deductible of a high-deductible health plan, with up to $2,200 left over.11
