Curious Fact: Critical diseases account for $4.1 trillion spent in the United States each year

In the United States, 790,000 heart attacks occur every year, one every 40 seconds, making heart disease account for 23% of annual deaths. Likewise, the main cause of death is heart disease, which belongs to the category of critical illnesses, so it is obvious that anyone could suffer from them, and it is important to be protected against this possibility.

What are critical illnesses?

Critical diseases are illnesses that can cause death or that, if survived by the individual, may affect his or her ability to lead a normal life and generate income, or that have a significant impact on his or her quality of life.

In addition, these diseases are often categorized by insurance companies to provide coverage that protects clients from these conditions. It is important to mention that each company may consider different diseases within this category, however, most of them are present on each insurer’s lists.

Definition of chronic and terminal illnesses

We tend to confuse critical, chronic, and terminal diseases, because we often think they mean the same thing, but believing this is a mistake:

– Chronic disease: A condition that lasts for 3 or more months and may get worse over time. This type of disease can be treated but cannot be cured. For example:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Among other diseases

– Terminal disease: A terminal disease is one that has no cure, or that has developed in a way that it can no longer be cured. Also, the medical staff attending the patient have the expectation that the patient will die within the next 12 months.

What are the health and economic impacts of critical illnesses?

One of the great consequences of these diseases is seen in the economic sphere since medical treatments or procedures for these illnesses are often very expensive. 33% of families spend all their savings on a serious illness, leaving families not only with a health problem, but also with an economic problem. Moreover, for many of these diseases, a large part of the necessary expenses are not direct medical expenses, so the cost to the patient’s well-being increases. 

Similarly, critical diseases can lead to consequences consisting of health conditions that affect the quality of life of patients, and even pose a lifetime risk. 66.9% of cancer victims between 2008-2014 lived only 5 years more.

Real story

Carol Marley is a Texas resident with a family consisting of her husband, daughter, and father, who suffers from dementia.

Carol works as a nurse caring for patients with various diseases or conditions, including cancer. This work helped her save money to fulfill her dream of buying an RV and traveling the country with her husband, until her dream was ruined when she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.


After her diagnosis, Carol started her treatment, which consisted of chemotherapy, which drained her emotionally. However, her main concern was not even the surgeries, the medical tests, the doctor’s visits, not even dying; her main concern was dealing with the series of medical bills and dealing with the American health care system. Curiously, cancer patients are 2.64 times more likely to go bankrupt than people who do not have cancer.  


Her numerous medical bills, along with mistakes on behalf of her insurance company, caused a lot of stress for her, despite having excellent private health insurance provided by her employer. Similarly, she often found herself desperate because she didn’t understand her bills, even as a health worker.
