What is critical illness insurance

Critical illness insurance pays a lump sum cash benefit upon diagnosis of a qualifying critical illness insurance. Cancer, heart attack and stroke are the three primary covered conditions. Today policies will cover a range of additional other health issues.

Many critical illness insurance policies offer an option for a cancer insurance policy. These generally are far more affordable. “For many women, a cancer-only insurance policy could be a very viable option,” Slome notes.
