Critical Illness Cover
According to Cancer Research UK at least 1 in 2 of us will be diagnosed with such an illness during our life time. The statics for being diagnosed with a critical or serious illness such as a form of cancer, heart attack or stroke are alarming.
With a critical or serious illness policy, cover is designed to provide a lump sum payment on diagnosis of a specified condition. These contracts vary widely between providers, getting the right professional advice is essential to ensure you are covered correctly.
The framework for such a policy is controlled by the Association of British Insurers (ABI). They specifically state what conditions need to be covered and the definition that needs to be applied, for a successful claim to be made.
Some insurers go beyond what is required by the ABI and enhance their definition making it more comprehensive. They add additional benefits into their contracts such as bereavement, counselling and / or medical helplines to give a greater depth of cover.
There are so many critical or serious illness cover policies, with a range of premiums, it is difficult to decide which one is right for you. You need to be aware that the variations in plan benefits can range considerably, therefore impartial advice is imperative to getting the right protection.
When considering such a policy, our advisors believe it is essential to understand a clients’ future health concerns and their wishes in such an event - 'What matters to you, matters to us'.
