Critical Illness Cover
Critical illness cover pays a cash lump sum on diagnosis of a specified critical illness and can be the solution to your financial worries at this time. For this relatively small cost, you could help your family cope for a while without income to pay household bills and debts.
This type of cover will pay out a lump sum which could pay for other things like:
Prescribed drugs not available through the NHS
Changes to your home
Paying off all/part of your mortgage
Only some forms of Cancer, heart attack and stroke are covered under critical illness insurance.
