A critical illness can impact your client's organization
at any time. It pays to be ready.

Why Should You Consider Critical Illness Insurance?

Does your client's health insurance coverage provide for day-to-day living expenses if one of their valued active employees, retirees or a covered loved ones become seriously ill? Our flexible critical illness benefit can assist employees with the myriad of expenses associated with the initial diagnosis of a critical illness such as a heart attack, stroke, cancer or coronary artery disease.

Why CriticalAssistance AdvanceSM?

CriticalAssistance AdvanceSM offers flexible benefits designed to help you meet different client needs. It is a group product so it allows ease of enrollment for multi-state groups, while still paying competitive commissions.

CriticalAssistance AdvanceSM pays a lump sum benefit equal to the Elected Benefit multiplied by the percentage shown in the schedule of benefits upon the initial occurrence of a covered critical illness within each category. If the benefit payment is less than 100% of the Elected Benefit amount, the policy pays a benefit upon diagnosis of a different critical illness within the same category. The maximum payout in each category will be 100% of the benefit amount. Eligible employees can purchase coverage from $5,000 to $50,000 (in increments of $5,000). Dependent coverage will be available at 50% of the employee/member's amount.
