Critical Illnesses Insurance is another term for Trauma Insurance. A trauma policy can provide a lump sum payment if you ever receive a serious illness or injury diagnosis. These health conditions can include severe head injuries, heart attacks, cancer, and stroke. However, your policy must mention the illness or injury. Therefore, it is crucial to analyse your policy or seek independent advice to determine whether you have cover for the disease or damage from which you believe you should be protected.
Your Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) will outline the circumstances under which your Trauma policy will provide coverage. Typically, these life-threatening conditions—cancer, heart attacks, Alzheimer’s, and stroke—will already be covered. Frequently cover is all supplied for significant burn injuries, major organ replacements, motor neurone disease and other medical ailments.

From July 1st, 2014, buying critical illness insurance via your Super policy became impossible. If you had a trauma insurance policy before this time, you might be able to make a claim.
You will be eligible for benefits under your trauma insurance plan if you acquire any severe medical conditions listed in your policy’s terms and conditions. Your capacity to work or the degree to which it impairs your regular life has no impact on your assessment.
You can lodge a Total and Permanent Disability Insurance claim if you can’t work because you are totally and permanently incapacitated because of an injury or disease. For example, a heart attack can qualify you to claim Trauma insurance benefits, but you would not be eligible for TPD unless your heart attack stopped you from working again.
