Critical Illness & Cancer Insurance

Why Critical Illness Insurance?
Health insurance will pay your core major medical costs but there can be multiple costs that aren't covered. Worrying about these financial issues will not help your mindset during an emotionally and physically difficult fight for your health. Critical Illness or Cancer Insurance can help you deal with:

  • PERSONAL LOST WAGES
  • SPOUSAL LOST WAGES
  • HOME ADAPTATIONS/MODIFICATIONS
  • TRAVEL TO OUT-OF-STATE FACILITIES FOR TREATMENT
  • ALTERNATIVE MEDICAL TREATMENTS
  • REHABILITATIVE CARE
  • DAYCARE

Critical Illness insurance pays you a lump-sum benefit when you suffer from specific conditions or illnesses, as outlined in the policy. You can use these funds for whatever purpose you desire, even completing your personal "Bucket List". Common benefit triggers include:

  • ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE
  • INVASIVE CANCER
  • HEART ATTACK
  • STROKE
  • COMA
  • CORONARY ARTERY BYPASS
  • IN SITU CANCER
  • SEVERE BURNS
  • PARALYSIS
  • LOSS OF SIGHT, SPEECH, OR HEARING

POSSIBLE POLICY FEATURES
Multiple Benefit Payouts:

Some policies will pay out multiple times for different suffered conditions. This may be available as an add-on rider to the base policy.

Return of Premium Death Benefit:

Some policies may return all premium money paid into the policy (less any benefits paid out) if you die while the policy is in force.

Waiting Periods:

Policies may have different waiting periods for different conditions, make sure to check the policy details.

Simplified vs. Medical Underwriting:

Some policies are easily issued based on a set of questions to ascertain your health risk. Typically, policies under X amount of dollars are "simplified" issue. In these cases, the insurer may check your prescription drug records and data from the Medical Information Bureau. For larger policies, the insurer may use full medical underwriting which will often include conducting a blood test screening, urinalysis, and could require your doctor(s) to provide Attending Physician Statements.

Employer Group vs Individual Coverage:

Generally speaking, individual coverage may be more cost-effective than employer group coverage because the group may be rated for a middle-of-the road health status. As a healthy individual, you could possibly qualify for better rates.

Age Limits:

Most policies either reduce coverage around ages 65 - 70 or terminate coverage. Make sure to ask about future coverage on the policy that you are examining.
