Video channel to promote critical illness insurance planning
A new video channel was launched today by the American Association for Critical Illness Insurance. The organization plans to create and post videos that provide consumers with valuable and helpful information.
“There is an enormous need for information about the importance of cancer-insurance and critical illness insurance options,” explains Jesse Slome, director of the organization. “We will utilize the new library to make available brief but informative videos for consumers.”
The first video posted by the organization shares five tips for finding the best critical illness insurance options. “People want to know specifics about comparing policies and tips to get the best coverage for the best price,” Slome shares. A second video posted addresses how much critical illness insurance is the appropriate amount.
The Association recommends individuals base their protection of what they pay in rent or mortgage over a six to 18-month period, Slome notes. “If you are diagnosed with cancer, you will be treated and most people will survive for years,” Slome adds. “That benefit will cover your living costs while you focus on your recovery.”
Critical Illness Association’s YouTube Channel
The Critical Illness Insurance Association’s YouTube channel will feature educational videos for both consumers and insurance professionals. “We plan to make this video channel the preeminent source of information for those seeking current and relevant information,” Slome adds.
The critical illness insurance expert notes that individuals who have health insurance often face significant health-related costs. “So many have high-deductible plans to which you add out-of-pocket costs,” Slome notes. “Health insurance premiums have to continue to be paid even while you receive care.” The Association recently released information on critical illness insurance buyers. “The average age for buyers was roughly 47, while buyers of group policies sold through the worksite averaged closer to 42”, Slome shares.
