What Is Critical Illness Cover?
Critical illness cover pays you if you are diagnosed with a critical illness. If this were to occur, your insurance company would provide a lump sum of money. This money is tax-free and can help reduce the financial impact of falling critically ill.
Should you need to make a critical illness claim, you can use your illness cover towards paying off bills to cover household expenses, travel costs or even experimental medical treatments not covered by the government.
How Does Critical Illness Cover Work?
A critical illness insurance policy is a type of insurance that you can purchase alongside a life insurance policy. It generally costs about the same amount as a term life policy and covers cancer, heart attack, or stroke. The insurance company will provide you with money if you are diagnosed with one of these illnesses. If the illness does not cause your death, this benefit will be yours to keep.
You can use this money for anything from paying off bills to taking time off work or even using it towards experimental medical treatments that your provincial health plan does not cover. Since you can spend it on anything, this type of insurance is very important and should help ease the financial burden on you and your family if you ever fall ill with a serious illness.

Critical Illness FAQs
How is a critical illness cover policy different from life insurance?
Taking out critical illness cover pays a pre-defined sum upon diagnosis of one of the pre-agreed conditions listed in the policy documents. On the other hand, life insurance pays out a tax-free lump sum as part of its benefit should you die within an agreed period from taking out the policy.
What does critical illness insurance not cover?
A critical illness policy is designed to provide life cover for critical illnesses only. It does not payout if you pass away or fall ill with a pre-existing medical condition that does not fit the list of conditions stated in the life insurance policy documents.
Are critical illness payouts taxed?
Critical illness cover payouts are paid out on a tax-free basis.
Can I get cover if I'm already suffering from an illness?
Some life insurance providers may not be willing to provide coverage if you already suffer from a severe illness. Depending on your condition, you may be at a higher risk of becoming unwell with other illnesses.
You should always declare any pre-existing conditions – you might find you can get cover, but your premiums may be higher than someone without existing conditions.
