Cost of surviving catastrophic illness

(UPI) The average cost of surviving a U.S. heart attack or stroke is $100,500, and much of it is not covered by standard health insurance, an insurance firm says…
"Despite having good insurance, I am many, many thousands of dollars in debt. It is not going to be easy to get out of," Steve, who did not wish to disclose his last name, said in a statement. "Until you're older, you think you're bullet proof. You are 42-years-old. You don't expect to get a pacemaker. You don't expect your heart to stop. You don't expect to be in an emergency room with your wife thinking you are going to die."
