Get covered for your recovery

 

Critical Illness Insurance

Critical Illness insurance is a one-time, lump-sum payout in the event you are diagnosed with a serious condition. These insurance policies cover anywhere from three to thirty covered conditions, such as: stroke, heart attack, cancers, etc.

Illness insurance has become the fastest growing health insurance product since its release in the early two-thousands. There are many extra costs associated with fighting an illness, including alternative treatments not covered by MSP. This can have a serious impact on your savings and retirement plans.

Given that this is the case, it’s important to have the financial help you need so you can take time off work and make a full recovery without worrying about bills. Give us a shout if you think you would suffer financial hardship in the event of a serious illness.

Critical Illness Insurance FAQs

Financial hardship for individuals and families is often triggered by some form of critical illness. The loss of income, large medical expenses and incurred debt associated with a critical illness can often be crippling to the affected’s financial situation.

Critical Illness Insurance is a valuable coverage to have at any age. Critical Illness policies for children are becoming more popular as parents buy policies for their child several weeks after being born. It is worth noting that coverage becomes more expensive as you get older, so it’s worth locking in a lower rate whilst you can.

All Critical Illness policies will cover 3-5 built-in illnesses. Cancer, heart attack, stroke, and coronary bypass are the most common. 

Depending on your insurer, you will usually have the option of adding another 20 or more illnesses to your coverage.  Some of the most common examples being multiple sclerosis, kidney failure, and dementia.

Yes. Whey applying for Critical Illness coverage, applicants have the option of adding what is called a “return of premium” to the policy.  If you are healthy and never get the benefit paid out, you can get a refund of all the premiums paid into the policy. Common choices for a return of premium is 15 years after the policy is issued, or when the insured turns age 65.
