YAKIMA, Wash., Aug. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Coming soon to a physician's office near you: facts on how to survive a critical illness financially - a matter of growing concern. Starting today, physicians across the US can request informative waiting room displays and guides on this topic from American Independent Marketing (AIM), https://whyaim.com, to help inform patients in their offices.
"We are happy to provide our resources directly to physicians, as many times they are the first line of defense and education for their patients," said John Wane, President of AIM. "They often turn out to be something like a gatekeeper. Your physician supplies the medical information to the insurance company, so they're the ones who can tell you how and when to apply, before it's too late."
According to a joint study in 2005 conducted by Harvard Law School and Harvard Medical, over 1.4 million Americans declared bankruptcy due to medical bills. Surprisingly, most of those bankrupted by illness had health insurance, and more than three-quarters were insured at the start of the bankrupting illness. However, 38 percent had lost coverage at least temporarily by the time they filed for bankruptcy.
The educational tools from AIM feature information for individuals and employers to explore the option of critical illness insurance as a planning tool and financial barrier against the high costs of a critical illness.
To support the national outreach to consumer on this topic, AIM has developed Critical Illness Education, http://www.criticalillnesseducation.org.
A critical illness policy can provide an affordable way for individuals to receive cash upon the diagnosis of a critical illness or condition. The free eGuide features information for individuals and employers to explore this option.
