Group Critical Illness Insurance

Critical Illness insurance provides a lump-sum benefit to help ease the financial burden that may result from one of 10 covered critical conditions. Note: Critical Illness insurance does not replace major medical health insurance. It is not tied to underlying medical expenses, and pays out a benefit independently of other coverage.

Consider these stats:

40% of people are at risk of developing cancer in their lifetime1
1 in every 3 deaths are caused by cardiovascular disease2
Every 40 seconds, someone in the United States has a stroke3
Cancer, heart attacks, and strokes can impact not only your health, but also your finances.

The need

Your employees need coverage that helps provide financial relief in the event of a covered critical illness diagnosis.

The solution

Critical Illness insurance pays a lump-sum benefit directly to the insured
upon diagnosis of these 10 covered conditions:

  • Organ transplant
  • Renal failure
