Critical illness insurance
No matter how healthy your lifestyle is, there is always a risk that some unforeseen circumstances will lead to a critical illness. In the vast majority of cases, there is no way to truly prepare for it, but a well-planned out insurance policy may help you avoid additional, unpleasant consequences that may come out of it.
A critical illness is one that is most often chronic and incurable. It can cause you to become incapacitated, often bedridden, and requiring rehabilitation, as well as help from others, in most cases, until the end of your life. There’s no denying the fact that treating such a disease often requires substantial financial input, which not only impacts the ill party, but also their closes relatives.
Although which specific illnesses qualify as critical depends on the insurance company, the most common ones include:
- heart attacks,
- internal haemorrhage,
- Parkinson’s disease,
- Alzheimer’s disease,
- Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease,
- And many others.
