With advances in medicine, more people are surviving a critical illness such as cancer, a heart attack or stroke. But recovery can be lengthy and come at a significant financial cost, such as:
- Time off work (lost wages for yourself or a caregiver)
- Expenses (such as travel for treatment or new treatment options that can come at a high cost)
- Child care
If you survive the waiting period of a covered condition, your critical illness insurance payment will allow you to focus on your recovery and not your finances.
