30% of heart attacks occur in people ages 35 to 54 and nearly 50% of Black women 20 and older have heart disease.1
Because Sydney’s a woman, her heart attack symptoms might go beyond chest pain to include indigestion, back or jaw pain, or shortness of breath.
A heart attack could put Sydney in the hospital for 2 to 7 days. She might need to take time off work to recover.2
Sydney could face catastrophic costs. Even with health insurance, nearly half of heart patients struggle to pay their medical bills.3
Critical illness insurance – which doesn’t have to cost your company a thing – can help Sydney stay financially stable during recovery and beyond.
