Critical Illness Coverage

A diagnosis of cancer, heart attack, or stroke interrupts a person's life physically, emotionally, and economically. Your clients can demonstrate concern for their employees with supplemental workplace voluntary plans that address their specific health concerns.

The value of Critical Illness Coverage

A critical illness plan enables your clients’ employees to help fight the costs associated with a life-threatening disease, while providing a level of assurance for their families. Benefits are paid with a one-time, lump-sum payment. This one-time payment allows the benefits to be used for any purpose, including:

  • Help offset loss of income
  • Deductibles, copayments, and scheduled benefit limitations
  • Treatments considered experimental
  • Transportation expenses to and from doctors and treatment facilities
  • Normal living expenses (mortgages, car payments, utility bills, childcare, groceries, credit card bills, etc.)

Plan benefit options

Some plan designs encompass a wider array of benefits, including coma, occupational HIV, and paralysis.
