According to a study conducted on behalf of the United States Fire Administration, “Firefighters, as a group, are more likely than other American workers to die of a heart attack while on duty.” In 2010, 56% of firefighter fatalities were due to heart attacks.
Additionally, of the 1,200,000 Americans who will be stricken with a heart attack this year, 79% will survive their heart attack only to be burdened with the high costs of co-insurance and deductibles, rehabilitation, home health care needs, prescriptions, and the loss of income while on medical leave.
A Critical Illness insurance policy from Western & Southern Life could provide you with a tax-free, lump-sum payment of up to $100,000 upon the diagnosis of a heart attack or one of seven other covered critical illnesses. Premiums are affordable – a premium equal to about 1% of your income could help replace the other 99% (depending upon your age).
