Good health is something we all value – you can’t really put a price on it. Well, that’s what people say, but it’s not entirely true.
In 2014, illness was listed as the fourth biggest reason our clients gave for getting into debt. There can be lots of financial consequences of falling ill, like having to take time off work, make alternative travel or childcare arrangements, or shell out money on prescriptions.
Whether you have a long-term or short-term illness, getting sick can have a huge impact on your finances, especially if you’re already living to a strict budget.
The good news is that there are ways to help lower the costs associated with illness, and in some cases even get rid of them completely. Why cough up more than you need to?!
