What is critical illness insurance?
Critical illness cover (or serious illness cover) is an insurance product that pays out on the diagnosis and survival of a range of serious medical conditions such as a heart attack, cancer or stroke. You probably know someone who has suffered from a heart attack or cancer.
Research says around half of us will suffer from cancer at some point in our lives.
Advancements in medical care mean you are more likely to survive these serious conditions than ever before. The right insurance can pay for treatment or simply pay your bills to give you peace of mind to help you recover.
