Heart Attacks – Attacking Your Wallet!

August 9, 2010 Leave a comment

Your left shoulder aches, your chest tightens, you experience shortness of breath and in no time, you are being rushed through the emergency doors for a stay in the hospital all because of a heart attack. Unfortunately the worst is still to come.

The National Business Group on Health found that the average cost of a major heart attack is roughly $1 million and what would be considered a less severe heart attack is priced at around $760,000! These costs are calculated based on the care that is required during and after a heart attack including hospital stays, exams, surgeries, prescriptions, doctor appointments, work leave, and more.

Of course, health insurance will cover most of the expenses, but even a fraction of $1 million will make a dent in your bank account!

Heart attacks are the leading cause of death in both men and women in the United States but yet people still survive. That is why it is imperative that you have health insurance so that in the event that you had a heart attack and survived, you wouldn’t continue to suffer and struggle with the resulting medical bills!

Health insurance is essential but you should still eat healthy, exercise regularly, and use a little more sunscreen!

We’d the love the chance to assist you further! If you have any questions or comments feel free to post them below or call Al Bourdeau Insurance Agency directly!
