Critical Illness Insurance

Lump sum payment to use as you see fit for yourself and your family

Managing the emotional cost of illnesses like cancer, a heart attack or a stroke* is hard enough. Managing the financial cost as well can be overwhelming. Critical illness insurance provides a lump sum payment to ensure you and your family have financial support in a difficult time. So, you can spend less time worrying about money and more time focusing on healing.

  • You’ll receive a lump sum payment upon verified diagnosis to use as you see fit
  • Use it for prescriptions, deductibles, co-payments, experiential/non-traditional treatments and even non-medical expenses like everyday bills
  • Pays out regardless of what your medical insurance covers
  • Payments are paid directly to you, not to the doctors, to the hospitals or to the healthcare providers

Help protect your health and your finances

You can never be fully prepared for a major illness. But with critical illness insurance, you can help be financially prepared.
