What’s covered by Critical Illness Insurance?

Unlike life insurance, which only pays on your death, critical illness insurance is designed to pay you a lump sum, or an income, should you be diagnosed with or need treatment for a life threatening or debilitating condition. This payment can then be spent to cover the costs of treatments or bills you may have. Critical illness insurance is designed to allow you and your family to focus on recovery, rather than worrying about bill payments and outgoings.

It’s important to remember though that there are lots of policies available from various insurers all with different terms and conditions. They will only provide cover for critical illnesses defined in their policy, so it’s important that you seek professional advice before purchasing your insurance.
