Consider protecting yourself with critical illness insurance.

Serious health events and illnesses can be devastating for you and your family in many ways, not the least of which is financially. Even with health insurance, situations like these can leave someone owing tens of thousands of dollars or more in medical bills. Critical illness insurance can help.

There are additional expenses associated with critical illnesses.

Someone who is facing a critical illness is likely missing income while in treatment. However, there are still groceries to buy, rent and mortgages to pay, and child care expenses to fund. In addition, they may be incurring additional expenses such as transportation costs to receive care. Many policies may offer benefits in the form of cash to be used in any way the policyholder sees fit, making this a more desirable product for employees.

How does it work?

Critical Illness Insurance pays a lump sum benefit directly to the insured, or whoever they choose, to help cover indirect, out-of-pocket expenses. It helps to keep the focus on recovery by alleviating some of the financial burden associated with these illnesses. Benefits are paid in addition to any other insurance coverage including group medical plans and Medicare.

The Critical Illness Wellness Benefit pays $100 per calendar year for the insured and an insured spouse, when a charge is incurred for one of the following covered cancer screening tests listed on page 3 of the brochure.
