Critical Illness Cover

Pay for the extra expenses of living with a serious illness without financial difficulty.

Anyone can potentially be diagnosed with a critical illness, even if you are young and follow a healthy lifestyle. Getting the right treatment for a serious illness can cost a lot of money and your medical aid won’t necessarily cover all the bills. Critical Illness Cover for Graduates can help you pay for these expense and protect your financial well-being.

Benefits

  • The insurance covers additional medical expenses not covered by your medical aid and provides for unplanned expenses associated with adapting your lifestyle
  • We mostly pay out 100% of the cover when you are diagnosed
  • You have the flexibility to choose from a Core Benefit or a Comprehensive Benefit:
    • The Core Benefit covers the four most common severe illnesses – cancer, heart attack, stroke and coronary artery bypass
    • The Comprehensive Benefit covers an additional list of illnesses, in addition to the four severe illnesses above, that cause serious impairment and inability to work, as well as a catch-all claim event that pays for illnesses that are not on our list if it causes serious impairment

How it Works

You make monthly payments until you reach retirement. If you are diagnosed with one of the insured illnesses before retirement, you receive a one-off pay-out. We pay 100% of the cover amount for the least to most severe levels of cancer, heart attacks, stroke and coronary artery bypass grafts.

How much will you pay?

The cost of the insurance will depend, amongst other things, on your age and your risk profile (how risky your lifestyle is, for example, whether you smoke or whether you participate in risky sports) when you take out the plan.
