Critical Illness Insurance

Reduce the potential financial impact of a critical illness
on your family and your future.

Why critical illness insurance?

Luckily, surviving a critical illness is becoming increasingly common with advances in medical technology. However, the costs of fighting these illnesses or keeping up with everyday bills can be more than most are prepared to deal with.

With supplemental critical illness insurance, you’ll receive a lump-sum cash payment upon diagnosis of a covered condition. If you have a health plan, critical illness insurance will provide benefits in addition to your other coverage.

Supplement your health plan

Critical illness insurance can help fill in gaps that your
plan may not pay:

  • Deductible and coinsurance
  • Out-of-network costs
  • Travel to the best doctors and facilities
  • Other treatments that your plan may not cover

Stay on top of everyday expenses

Use the cash to pay for everyday expenses while you’re focusing on getting well:

  • Lost income
  • Mortgage
  • Household bills
  • Gas and food
