Why Serious Illness Cover?

Unlike typical critical illness cover, our Serious Illness Cover pays your client on a severity based approach. This means that our cover provides a payout proportionate to the severity of a condition.

With advances in medical technology and screening processes, we recognise that conditions are being caught sooner. These early stage illnesses may not be eligible for a payment with another provider, but we know that they can still cause stress and often lead to time being taken off work.  


If your client needs to claim for a condition that does not use up their full cover amount, they will still have cover available. So if their condition worsens, or they suffer with a different condition, they'll be able to can claim again and again, until they've used up the full amount.
