Planning Trends in Healthcare
Genetics, long-term-care plans in pre-nups, and critical illness preparedness play a significant role in healthcare planning today. The health histories of your parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and siblings offer potential warning signs for your health future and an area to begin your own planning.
Dr. Marius Barnard founded critical illness insurance, at that time called dread disease insurance, in South Africa in October 1983. An internationally known heart surgeon, Dr. Barnard witnessed the devastation of the cost of care not covered by traditional health plans. Since then, various critical illness, hospital indemnity and short-term care plans have been offered worldwide to supplement traditional health plans, whether through national health care or privately owned plans.
Planning and packaging your health care eases the severe emotional, financial and physical effects when someone is diagnosed with a critical illness or is facing long-term or short-term care.
