WHAT IS COVER FOR SERIOUS ILLNESS?
- Cover for serious illness consists of a tax-free lump sum benefit that you will receive upon being diagnosed with or treated for a serious illness.
- Illnesses and procedures that entitle the insured to the benefit can be: cancer, heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, multiple sclerosis, coronary bypass surgery and organ transplant or bone marrow transplant. Detailed information on the illnesses entitling to the benefit and on restrictions can be found in the terms and conditions.
- Cover for serious illness is not medical expenses insurance, which offers compensation of costs arising from treatment.
- The cover for serious illness compensates illness, but is not life insurance. You can have both. Life insurance provides security for your loved ones in the worst-case scenario and cover for serious illness is usually paid to the policyholder who has fallen ill.
