What is a critical illness?

A critical illness is a serious medical condition that can have a significant impact on a person's life. It can affect the functioning of vital organs, such as the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, or others. This can severely affect a person's ability to do their daily activities. Treatment for critical illness can be intensive and lengthy and can also be very expensive.

What is critical illness insurance?

Critical illness insurance is a type of insurance policy that provides financial protection when you face serious illness. It covers a wide range of critical illnesses such as cancer, melanoma, kidney failure, heart attacks, strokes, and other severe diseases. If you are diagnosed with one of these illnesses while your policy is active, the insurance company will pay you a lump sum amount. This money can be used to cover the costs of medical treatment, lost income, and other expenses that may arise as a result of your illness.

What is the difference between critical illness insurance and health insurance?

Critical illness insurance and health insurance are both types of insurance that can help protect you financially in the event of a medical emergency. However, there are few differences between the two types of insurance:

  1. Insurance Coverage
    Health insurance policy covers wider range of minor and major illnesses, including some of the critical conditions. However, the policy limits of health insurance might not be as high as critical illness insurance.

    Critical illness coverage offers higher policy limits and provides a lump sum to cover your expenses the way you see fit, including the loss of income. Rest assured, critical illness coverage will provide you with the financial support and cover expenses and medical treatments you need if you are diagnosed with one of the listed illnesses.
  2. Claim
    A health insurance policy can directly cover your medical expenses or be reimbursed later. For example, your doctor’s visits might be covered if you get a flu.
    Alternatively, critical illness coverage will pay out a lump sum, if you are diagnosed with a critical illness listed in your insurance policy. Once your insurance claim is approved, you will receive a direct cash payment from your insurance provider.
  3. Protection Purposes
    Regular health insurance can help you cover the cost of casual medical expenses such as doctor visits, hospital stays, and prescription drugs. You can use the policy to cover expenses when you start feeling sick.
    Critical illness insurance protects you against the financial burden of a serious illness. If you are diagnosed with a covered condition, such as cancer, heart attack, or stroke. Critical illness insurance is especially important for people with families, as it can help to ensure that their loved ones are financially secure.
