Critical illness insurance will provide a one-off, tax-free lump sum in the face of a serious medical situation, which can be used to cover finances while the individual cannot work to pay for treatment, arrange for any required care, to modify your home and even to pay your mortgage.
Different policies will cover a variety of conditions and ailments – while before the majority of policies only covered heart conditions and strokes, a variety of others such as Parkinsons, deafness, blindness and MS are now included in critical illness insurance policies. They will not however cover existing medical conditions.
The cost of your cover will depend on a number of factors; your age, existing health conditions and your employment. We will take all of these into consideration when evaluating your critical illness policy.
