Buying Time – The Importance of Trauma Insurance
Almost everyone in Australia is affected by cancer at some point in their lives. While the physical and emotional side effects are well known, the financial side effects are often the elephant in the room.
The recent Four Corners story ‘Buying Time’ documents the escalating costs of fighting cancer and how treatment options can be severely limited by finances:
It can be frightening to think that the treatments available to you can be determined by what you can afford. As drug trials and new treatments become available, it can take many years for the government to provide financial relief for the cost of these products. Unfortunately for many sufferers time is not on their side.
Adequate Trauma insurance can provide peace of mind that you could at least ease your financial burden should you fall ill, allowing you to focus on regaining your health.
