What’s covered by critical illness insurance?
Unlike life insurance, which only pays on your death, critical illness insurance is designed to pay you a lump sum or income should you be diagnosed with or need to undergo surgery for a life threatening or debilitating condition. This payment can then be spent to cover the costs of treatments or bills you may have. Critical illness insurance is designed to allow you and your family to focus on recovery, rather than worrying about bill payments and outgoings.
Cover can be taken on a full lump sum pay-out basis or on the premise of a ‘pot’ of cover that will pay out a percentage of the pot at different stages of illnesses and treatments. This new concept can provide cover for clients with pre-existing illnesses who in the past would have been declined for cover. In the case of pre-existing illnesses some exclusions to cover will apply.
It’s important to remember though that there are lots of policies available from various insurers all with different terms and conditions. They will only provide cover for critical illnesses defined in their policy, so it’s important that you seek professional advice before purchasing your insurance.
