A message from Aflac

To our policyholders in areas affected by wildfires in designated California counties: Butte, Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Nevada, Orange, Solano, Sonoma, and Yuba, as well as those in areas affected by recent hurricanes in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, please know that the thoughts and prayers of everyone at Aflac are with you. We are working with government agencies that represent all declared disaster areas, including those under emergency order, to ensure we do everything possible to help you. Based on that guidance, we have extended the due dates for policy premiums by 60 days for those living in places that have been declared disaster areas or are under emergency order. If you have a question about your policy or need help, contact us at 800-992-3522. To help with the recovery, Aflac made a $500,000 donation to the American Red Cross, and our employees are making their own private contributions. Please be safe, as the care of you and your families is paramount.

Show your company has heart with these heart-healthy strategies

As men and women prepare to give their hands and hearts in marriage – or celebrate their anniversaries – it makes sense for them to ensure those hearts are healthy. After all, about 735,000 Americans have heart attacks each year, and a whopping 27.6 million are diagnosed with heart disease. Treatment for the latter is expensive, totaling about $207 billion per year in health care services, medications and lost work productivity.2

Steps to a healthier heart

The good news is that according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heart disease is not only preventable but controllable. Here are eight things you, as an employer, should encourage members of your workforce to do to remain heart healthy:

  • apple iconEat a diet that includes fresh foods and vegetables, as well as foods that are low in saturated fat and trans-fat and high in fiber. Limiting salt or sodium can lower blood pressure.
  • Maintain a healthy weight, because being overweight or obese can increase the risk of heart disease.
  • Exercise regularly. Physical activity not only helps workers maintain a healthy weight, it can also lower cholesterol.
  • Monitor blood pressure at home, at a pharmacy or at a doctor’s office.
  • Stop smoking, because cigarettes are a major risk factor.
  • no alcohol iconLimit alcohol consumption because alcohol increases blood pressure.
  • Have cholesterol levels checked by a doctor at least once every five years.
  • Manage diabetes by closely monitoring blood sugar.

Other keys to attaining heart health include getting enough rest and limiting stress. The American Heart Association says stress “may affect behaviors and factors that are proven to increase heart disease risk: high blood pressure and cholesterol levels, smoking, physical inactivity and overeating.”3

Voluntary insurance can go a long way toward helping [employees] put money fears aside in favor of what’s important – getting well.

Heart attack symptoms

  • Pain or discomfort in the jaw, neck or back.
  • Feeling weak, lightheaded or faint.
  • Chest pain or discomfort.
  • Pain or discomfort in the arms or shoulders.
  • Shortness of breath. If you think you or someone you know is having a heart attack, immediately call 911.

Easing stress with the right insurance coverage

One thing that’s certain is employees who’ve experienced heart-related illnesses don’t need the additional stress of worrying about how they’ll pay for medical treatment. Voluntary insurance can go a long way toward helping them put money fears aside in favor of what’s important – and that’s getting well. Three key insurance policies that can help alleviate their financial concerns are:

  • Specified health event, which pays cash benefits for covered events as policyholders concentrate on recovery.
  • Hospital confinement indemnity, which pays benefits for various out-of-pocket expenses associated with a covered hospital stay.
  • Short-term disability, which helps pay bills such as the monthly mortgage or rent, child care, utility bills and car payments while a policyholder is unable to work.

A voluntary insurance policy isn’t the ultimate wedding or anniversary gift. But helping employees learn to maintain their cardiovascular health and providing access to insurance that helps protect their financial security is a good way to show your company has heart.
