Cash benefits to supplement your major medical insurance policy

Pay your mortgage, major medical premiums or deductible, or help cover other expenses that don’t stop, even when you experience a critical illness.

What Does Critical Illness Insurance Cover?

Most critical illness policies provide a lump sum benefit for covered illnesses depending on the severity of the condition and how long you’ve had your policy.

The following lists include common coverages and exclusions, however, you must read any policy you’re considering carefully since this is not an exhaustive list.

 

What Critical Illness Policies May Cover

  • Life-threatening cancer
  • Heart attack
  • Kidney failure
  • Stroke
  • Coma
  • Coronary artery bypass
  • Loss of sight, speech or hearing
  • Major organ transplant
  • Paralysis
  • Severe burn

What Critical Illness Policies May Not Cover

  • Self-inflicted injury or sickness
  • Recurrence of cancer (only the first diagnosis may be covered)
  • Illnesses that occur during the policy waiting period
  • Diagnoses related to pre-existing conditions
  • Procedures that are not medically necessary
  • Experimental or investigational procedures
  • Procedures not prescribed by a doctor
  • Injuries resulting from war or active duty military service
  • Injuries sustained at work, while under the influence of drugs or alcohol or while participating in a high-risk activity like bungee jumping

Pros and Cons of Critical Illness Coverage

  • You’re in control – You choose how to use your benefits to spend any way you need while you recover.
  • Keep your doctor – You may be able to use any provider or facility with no network limitations.
  • Apply year-round – There is no official open enrollment period.
  • A plan for every budget – Different levels of coverage may be available at different price points to meet individual needs.
  • Affordable monthly premiums – Because policies are so limited in what they cover, it’s relatively affordable to maintain this supplemental coverage.

Combine With Other Insurance Plans for More Coverage

Combine a critical illness policy with other supplemental health insurance products for more coverage. Hospital indemnity insurance, dental, vision, and accident insurance can complement your supplemental critical illness insurance.
