What Is Critical Illness Insurance?
Critical Illness insurance helps cover out-of-pocket expenses associated with a serious illness. You may have medical insurance. But that doesn't mean you're covered for all of the expenses resulting from a serious illness that you probably haven't budgeted for — things like co-pays, deductibles, loss of income, child care and travel expenses. Group Critical Illness insurance helps fill the gap caused by these out-of-pocket costs, creating a financial safety net for you and your family.
How Does Critical Illness Insurance Work?
Critical Illness insurance provides an extra layer of protection that can make a big difference in your ability to pay out-of-pocket expenses associated with a serious illness. It pays a lump-sum benefit directly to you upon diagnosis of a covered illness, regardless of your treatment costs or what’s covered by your medical insurance.
