Critical illness insurance is a good, supplemental option for people who already have health insurance, because it gives you additional money to pay for expenses like deductibles. We offer policies you can buy from us directly and policies available through many employers.
Critical illnesses include stroke, heart attacks, Parkinson’s, cancer, and more. Our policies can cover over 30 major illnesses. If you happen to get diagnosed with one of these illnesses, our plans can pay you a lump sum of up to $50,000.1
It’s an affordable way to supplement and pay for the additional expenses your health insurance doesn’t cover. Plus, some of our policies pay out additional cash if you find yourself in the hospital for less serious illnesses or injuries.
Thirty-four percent of Americans with medical insurance find it difficult to afford their deductible. 2 A critical illness plan helps secure your savings from unexpected illnesses because it pays out money you can use for the expenses your primary health insurance won’t cover.
- It’s paid directly to you
Critical illness insurance pays you directly in cash without any deductible or extra waiting time after your claim is verified.
- You choose how to spend your money
The money you receive from your critical illness insurance can be used however you want, covering anything from medical costs to non-medical costs like your monthly rent.
- Money for the first and second diagnosis
Our plans have you covered for the long term, paying you a lump sum of $1,000 to $50,000 when you’re first diagnosed with a critical illness. If you ever receive a second diagnosis, we’ll still be there for you, offering a lump-sum payout of $500 to $25,000.1
