Critical illness management: Preparing for - not reacting to - critical illness

Preferred Care protects you and your loved ones in the unfortunate but common occurence of a life-threatening illness. The statistics are sobering: cardiovascular disease and cancer are leading causes of death globally, exceeding by far the likelihood of fatal accidents.

You may have concerns over important issues in the case that critical illness should strike:

  • Affording catastrophic medical expenses
  • Experiencing a loss of income from becoming disabled
  • Needing to provide financial and medical support to a family member experiencing critical illness
  • Being unable to access the best doctors
  • Long waiting lines
  • The stress of being reimbursed for catastrophic medical expenses

Can you think of anything more critical?

Critical illness care in the USA fixes the holes in your safety net.

While local care may be excellent for less serious conditions, treating a critical illness successfully requires the global best – in medical practice and quality control – and a patient-centered approach designed to tackle serious issues like misdiagnosis, medical mistakes, delays and sub-optimal treatments, while financing it all.

The all too common mistakes that lead to needless death or disability.
