Filling the Gaps: Health Scares and Surprises

Bridge Gaps

When your customers are injured or hospitalized, getting well should be their number one priority – not worrying about making loan payments. That’s where we can help.

These days, many consumers limit their insurance coverage to the ‘big four’: home, life, health and auto. Important? Absolutely. But focusing on just the ‘big four’ could leave your customers unprotected, and unable to make their monthly payments thanks to gaps in coverage.

From Subtle to Serious

Say you’ve got a little cough­—just a tickle—but you’re busy and opt to skip the doctor. Soon, your ‘little cough’ turns into a big cough, and is joined by shortness of breath and other nasty symptoms like nausea, vomiting, and heavy sweating. Now you’re skipping the doctor again, this time in favor of a trip to the ER.

This sort of thing might seem far-fetched…until it happens. Approximately 90 percent of disability claims result from illness, not accidents. When your customers are faced with a serious illness, their number one priority should be getting well. But that doesn’t mean that other priorities—like paying regular bills—can (or should) fall to the wayside.

Yes, health insurance can provide the financial support to get customers the hospitalization and prescriptions they need, but it’s not likely to cover their monthly loan payments; Credit Disability can.
