Critical Illness Cover

Advances in medical technology mean that people are more likely to survive illnesses that used to be fatal, but that doesn’t guarantee a full recovery without changes to lifestyle, cost of living, mobility, and quality of health.

Not only will the medical expenses for surviving a critical illness be substantial – for which there is medical aid – but there will be additional expenses for living if you’ve survived illnesses or conditions such as cancer, stroke, or a heart attack. Living with Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease can also prove to be expensive, as can brain damage or paraplegia.

Critical illness cover offers you a tax-free lump sum pay out, which can be used any way you like. It provides you with additional funds for expenses such as medical expense shortfall; reduced income due to impairment; and accessing the best medical technology.

Our wide range of critical illness cover will assist you with conditions that afflict the whole body, including, but not limited to:

  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular system
  • Brain and nervous system
  • Lungs and breathing
  • Kidney and urinary tract
  • Ear, nose, and throat system
  • Hormones
  • Muscles, bones, and joints
  • Connective tissue diseases
  • HIV/Aids
  • Terminal illness
  • Trauma

Our cover also protects children for free, with claims of up to R125 000 of per benefit.
