CHICAGO, Feb. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- February is American Heart Health Month, dedicated to raising awareness about cardiovascular disease and the preventative steps that can be taken to reduce risk. According to the 2018 update of the Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics report from the American Heart Association, cardiovascular disease is the underlying cause of death for one of every three deaths in the United States.
As a leading provider of individual supplemental accident & health, disability, and life insurance products, Combined Insurance, a Chubb company, strongly encourages consumers to learn more about heart health and preventative measures that can be taken.
According to the same report by the American Heart Association, factors such as high cholesterol, obesity and high blood pressure contribute to increased risk of developing heart disease. Fortunately, steps can be taken to reduce risk factors, including quitting smoking, healthy eating, and increased physical activity.
"Raising awareness about the importance of heart health is critical," said Judy Tanzer, Assistant Vice President of Product Development at Combined Insurance. "As a supplemental insurance company, we encourage our customers to evaluate their heart health risk and take preventative measures related to both health and associated financial costs."
Supplemental insurance can play an instrumental role in relieving the financial stress associated with dealing with illnesses such as heart disease. Combined Insurance's Family Life Protector is coverage for consumers looking to protect their families in the case of an untimely death. It provides a cash benefit up to $100,000, paid directly to the beneficiary, to help family and loved ones manage financial responsibilities during a trying time.
