Need to Get Yourself Covered!
Have you ever stopped and wondered; why is there a need to get yourself and your family covered by a health plan? If yes, you’re not alone. Today, having a quality critical illness cover in place is no longer a luxury but a necessity. It’s essentially, the one type of insurance that you are most likely to use. Let’s put this into perspective:
Owing to the strenuous lives we lead, there’s has been a massive spur tin lifestyle disease such as Cancer, Diabetes, Heart Diseases etc. At present, Cancer is recognized as one of the most dangerous and catastrophic illnesses one can suffer from as it has wide ranging implications. Moreover, Cancer is a condition that can affect anyone no matter what age or race you belong to! However, owing to ignorance, a lot of individuals are under the misconception that cancer is a hereditary disease – The reality, though, is that only five to ten percent of all individuals diagnosed with this devastating disease are as a result of hereditary reasons. Quite honestly, Cancer can develop because of a myriad of reasons including your lifestyle choices while others are simply beyond your control. To reinstate this, here’ an alarming statistic published by The National Cancer Registry Programme of the Indian Council of Medical Research: It has been revealed that nearly 3.8 million people in India alone were diagnosed with cancer in the period between 2012-2014.
Certain lifestyle diseases are unavoidable but getting quality treatment is certainly not. However, seeking quality treatment comes at a cost – each chemotherapy session can cost as much as Rs. 90,000 while costs could spiral as high as Rs. 20 lakhs for a 6-month treatment if innovative drugs and targeted medicines are used (Source: Healthcare Global, Bangalore). This has the potential to completely wipe out your life savings and plunge you further into crippling debts.
Besides cancer, there are several other diseases which you need to fend yourself against and just like cancer, seeking treatment for them can cost you an arm and leg. With the growing rate of inflation coupled with the rising medical costs, it's therefore imperative that you invest in a good critical illness cover for yourself and your family.
