Critical illness insurance because the risks are real

Anyone, at any time can be diagnosed with cancer, have a heart attack or stroke. TODAY MOST WILL SURVIVE. But treatment comes at a cost. Even with great health insurance you will face charges for deductibles, co-pays, out-of-network care and medications.

How will you and your family pay the rent, your mortgage, the cell phone bill, even babysitters while you take time off from work to undergo treatments or recover?

A needed and affordable option

Cancer or critical illness insurance can pay you a lump sum cash benefit when you likely need funds the most. The check is sent directly to you, not a healthcare provider. No receipts or medical bills are necessary. Use this money to help pay medical costs or any of your other expenses. It can be an affordable option that gives you the peace of mind to CONCENTRATE ON YOUR RECOVERY – NOT ON YOUR FINANCES.

Critical Illness Insurance Rates & Information

Tip #1 - How do I get the best insurance rates?

critical illness insurance rates costsThere are roughly 60 insurance companies that offer cancer or ci insurance.  Read tips on what to look for.  Compare policies.  Do compare if your employer offers coverage.  If you do NOT smoke, compare.  You may save.  Some policies charge MEN and WOMEN the same amount.  They have different risks.  That’s another reason to compare before you buy.  Start by using our Cost Calculator.

Tip #2 - What's the best age to consider this insurance?

critical illness insurance rates costsCompanies will sell policies to people in their 20s and 30s.  But the Association believes the best ages are between 40 and 55. The risk of being diagnosed with cancer before age 65 or 70 starts increasing.  That is especially true for women.

Tip #3 - How much insurance should I buy?

how much critical illness insuranceYou can buy a policy that pays $10,000.  Or, you can buy one that pays $50,000, $100,000 or even more.  The Association suggests you consider coverage equal to between 6 and 18 months of rent or mortgage payments.  That will generally cover costs not covered by your health insurance.  And it will pay rent or mortgage payments so you can focus on treatments and recovery, not on how you’ll pay bills.
