Three products for your critical illness insurance needs
Mutual of Omaha calls their product, the Critical Advantage portfolio. It offers three options.
Critical Illness Insurance
Heart Attack and Stroke Insurance
Coverage face amounts range from $10,000 to $100,000. The company offers ‘simplified underwriting’. That means fewer questions about existing health issues.
What ages are accepted?
The Mutual of Omaha Critical Illness Insurance policy accepts applicants between ages 18 and 64. The Cancer and Heart Attack and Stroke policies accept applicants up to age 89.
Older Ages – Good or Bad? The Association’s position is that this coverage is most needed and valuable between ages 40 and 65.
Clearly the risk of cancer or a heart attack and stroke increases significantly after age 70. For that reason, this insurance gets quite costly after age 65 or 70. However, if you can afford it, definitely it is something to look into.
A price advantage for smokers and tobacco users
The Mutual of Omaha policy uses ‘uni-tobacco’ pricing. That means that smokers and non-smokers pay the same price for equal amounts of insurance.
Smokers and tobacco product users face a higher risk of getting cancer. They also face higher risks for having heart attacks or strokes.
For smokers or tobacco users, this policy may offer some significant cost savings. That is compared to insurance companies that charge more to those who smoke.
For that reason, it is definitely worth a quick call to find pricing for the Mutual of Omaha cancer or critical illness policy.
Advantages and disadvantages of 'uni-sex' insurance policy pricing
Insurance companies have two options when it comes to pricing cancer or critical illness insurance pricing. They can charge women and men the same. This is referred to as ‘uni sex’ pricing. It makes things easy.
So what is the disadvantage. Women and men have different risks that vary by age. One example is cancer. Women face a greater risk of cancer at younger ages. That’s because they risk breast cancer.
The price difference may be very little. Or, it may be quite a bit. Is it worth comparing? In the Association’s option, it is always worth comparing. You want the best coverage for the best price.
