Los Angeles, CA – July 19, 2017 – To help consumers obtain information and critical illness insurance costs the American Association for Critical Illness Insurance has partnered with Emerge, a digital insurance broker.

“Critical illness insurance sales are growing faster than nearly any other insurance product,” states Jesse Slome, director of the American Association for Critical Illness Insurance.  “Individuals increasingly understand that they are more likely to survive a critical illness than they are to die from it.”
