Aflac: Americans Aren’t Ready to Tackle Unexpected Illness

Survey finds many don't have voluntary health plans

Americans overestimate how healthy they really are, according to a survey of 8,000 workers by Research Now and Aflac.

According to the 2012 Aflac WorkForces Report, 62 percent of workers said they do not think it’s likely they or a family member will be diagnosed with a serious illness such as cancer. More than half (55 percent) said they believe it is unlikely they will be diagnosed with a chronic illness, like heart disease or diabetes.
