Lifebroker Asks - What Are My Chances of Suffering Critical Illness?
August 11, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsThe likelihood of us as Australians suffering from a critical illness is shockingly high. Looking into specific illness's that predominantly affect Australians, there are some surprising statistics.
Reading these statistics can be frightening. It appears that we'll either end up with a mental illness or cancer or heart disease. Maybe all three. Maybe we won't end up with them, but asthma or diabetes instead.
Australians are often very optimistic in terms of serious illness and injury. We watch television ad's of people falling sick or getting injured. A lot of us have the same mentality, "it won't happen to me".
It's easy to become cynical when faced with such confronting facts. Instead of becoming cynical, it might be wise to take out protective cover in case you do fall seriously ill.
Trauma insurance, or critical illness insurance pays out a lump sum of money upon diagnosis of a serious illness. There are about 30 to 40 illnesses which are covered, depending on which insurance company you choose to go with.
