Los Angeles, CA, January 15, 2020 --(PR.com
)-- Jesse Slome, a leading insurance industry marketing expert and planning advocate has announced plans to relaunch the American Association for Critical Illness Insurance.
"We believe there is an enormous need to create heightened awareness for the need for and benefits provided by critical illness insurance," shares Jesse Slome, director of the organization and the conference organizer. Slome, who founded the organization in 2010, explained that efforts had ceased several years ago but believes the time is right for work to begin again.
"Millions of Americans are impacted by critical illnesses, which primarily include cancer, hearty attack and stroke," Slome notes. "The vast majority of bankruptcies in the U.S. are the direct result of medical expenses and many, perhaps most of these people have health insurance but it's just not enough."
Critical illness insurance can play a vital role in helping the millions who are financially impacted by a critical illness. Slome expects the Association's efforts will focus on consumer awareness and advocacy. "We'll also support insurance agents who want to market critical illness products as part of their portfolio of protection products," he adds.
As part of the planned launch, Slome announced that the Association's website will be completely revised and relaunched. "We are going to build the preeminent online resource for consumers seeking information on critical illness insurance," Slome shared. "There is an enormous amount of work to undertake but we are committed and looking forward to the effort and success."
Slome will serve as director of the American Association for Critical Illness Insurance and looks forward to working with other committed professionals across the industry. In addition, he serves as director of the American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance and the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance. Currently, there is no conference exclusively focused on critical illness insurance but Sloime does not rule out such an event in the future. "If there's sufficient interest, we'll organize it," he concluded.
