Life can get expensive when faced with critical illness. While medical insurance often pays for most physician and hospital costs, many expenses, such as lost income while you are off work, are not covered. Critical illness insurance may help close the gap and provide the financial safety net your family needs.
Critical illness insurance pays a lump sum directly to you, not your health care provider, upon diagnosis of certain critical health conditions. It allows you to focus on your treatment, and not your finances. Most policies pay a 100 percent lump sum benefit, regardless of health insurance benefits, for the following illnesses:
Heart attack (myocardial infarction)
Life threatening cancer (malignant)
Major organ transplant
End-stage renal (kidney) failure
What Expenses are Covered?
The money is for you and your family to use as you wish. No deductibles. No receipts. No exclusions. Common expenses paid with the policy:
Lost income while you are off work
Deductibles and out-of-network costs
Travel and lodging expenses while receiving treatment
