Financial provision for unexpected medical expenses


The Centre for Diabetes and Endocrinology says statistics for the costs associated with diabetes management in South Africa are unknown, but 2007 US data showed that medical expenses among people with diabetes were 2.3 times higher than they would be for people with diabetes.


Complications from diabetes could affect your financial security and ability to work. This is why critical illness and disability cover should form part of your financial plan. If you are unable to work, you will need the financial backup to deal with unexpected expenses that may result from diabetes.


Talk to your financial advisor today. Just as there are changes you can make to manage and even prevent diabetes, there are steps you can take to prepare for the impact of diabetes and other conditions on your financial security.


This is why death and disability cover should be part of your financial plan.


Talk to a financial advisor to make sure that you have the right cover in place. If you don’t have an advisor, contact us on 011 547 7116 and we will put you in touch with one.
