What is Critical Illness Insurance Cover?

Critical illness insurance is another term for trauma insurance policies. A trauma policy provides a lump sum payment when you are diagnosed with a serious illness or injury. At such a time, you can make a trauma insurance claim with your terminal illness insurance company and receive a lump sum amount that helps pay your medical expenses.

Eligible medical conditions include severe head injuries, heart attacks, cancer, and strokes. However, your trauma insurance 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.

Note: In Australia, terminal illness insurance does not cover mental health conditions.
