Critical Illness Insurance

Allowing you to focus on recovery

Critical Illness insurance was originally designed by medical professionals who recognized the need to provide financial support to both patients and their families.  Under these plans, a lump sum benefit amount, ranging between $10,000 and $2 million, is payable upon diagnosis of a covered life threatening illness.  This type of financial assistance acts as a much needed financial cushion during a difficult time, allowing you to focus on recovery.

Recent medical advances and improved treatment options have resulted in a tremendous increase in survival rates for illnesses such as cancer, heart disease and stroke. Unfortunately, there can be a number of expenses associated with treatment and recovery that are not covered by government programs or traditional insurance plans.

For example:

  • Alternative healthcare treatments
  • Income replacement (patient and spouse)
  • Home modifications
  • In home nursing care
  • Debt or mortgage payments
  • Family vacation

Ultimately, you have the freedom to decide where the money is spent.
