When the thermometer gets hotter, hospital emergency rooms brace themselves...
You may call it summer, but in Emergency Rooms across the country, the three-month period that follows spring is known as "Trauma Season." It is particularly true in the Pacific Northwest, when children -- and adults -- who have been cooped up for months emerge from hibernation and school classrooms.
Experience has shown that when a person has an injury 2 things always happen;
1. You will have additional expenses. A broken leg will run you as much as 15K. Does your Medical Insurance have a deductible? What if you need follow-up care, drugs, therapy? Where will the money come from?
2. Then what if you can’t work? The bills still need to be paid.
* Over 4 out of 10 people are treated in hospital emergency rooms every year.
* The average hospital stay is 6 days.
* The average hospital stay is over $10,000.
* 43% of Americans report having a difficult time covering medical expenses – even with medical insurance.
There is a way to protect yourself and stay on a budget. Accident Insurance pay money directly to you, to help with those sudden unexpected expenses.
