Most people want to work at organizations where they feel valued when they knock a project out of the park or meet a tight deadline. But they also want to know their company cares about them on a personal level. If they don’t feel valued, they might start losing interest.

Since many organizations don’t offer vision benefits as part of their healthcare package, providing them at your company can give you a leg up in recruiting and retention efforts.

What is Critical Illness Insurance?

Critical Illness Insurance (CI) provides a financial, lump-sum benefit to employees upon diagnosis of a covered illness. These covered illnesses are typically very severe and likely to render the affected person incapable of working. Because of the financial strain, these illnesses can place on individuals and families; critical illness insurance is designed to help ill employees pay the mortgage, seek experimental treatment, or handle unexpected medical expenses.

Group critical illness insurance doesn’t replace health insurance; it complements it. While health insurance provides payments to doctors, hospitals, and specialists, critical illness insurance provides money to employees directly at a time when they need it most.

What does Critical Illness Insurance usually cover?

Group critical illness insurance policies are designed to cover a wide variety of illnesses. These may include:
  • Invasive cancer
  • Non-invasive cancer
  • Heart attack
  • Coronary artery bypass surgery
  • Angioplasty
  • Stroke
  • Kidney (renal) failure
  • Major Organ Transplant
  • Paralysis
  • Coma
  • And more

Advantages of Critical Illness Insurance

Many people seek to purchase critical illness insurance through their employer. It is common for employers to offer it as a voluntary benefit.

Companies have been keen to add these plans because they recognize employees are worried about high out-of-pocket expenses with a high-deductible plan. Unlike other health care benefits, workers generally bear the entire cost of critical illness plans. That makes it a money saver for companies, as well as workers.

Critical illness insurance can be used for a variety of things, such as:
  • Critical medical services that might otherwise be unavailable.
  • Treatments not covered by a traditional policy.
  • Daily living expenses, allowing the critically ill to focus their time and energy on getting well instead of working to pay their bills.
  • Transportation expenses, such as getting to and from treatment centers, retrofitting vehicles to carry wheelchairs, and installing lifts in homes for those who can no longer navigate staircases.
  • Those in need of a restful place to recover can use the funds to take a vacation.

Simply put, critical illness insurance can alleviate financial worry in the event an individual becomes too sick to work.

How much does Critical Illness Insurance cost?

Insurers will want to know the below information for everyone the policy will cover before offering Critical Illness quotes:
  • Dates of birth
    The cost of Critical Illness Cover rises as we get older because we’re more susceptible to illness or injury.
  • Gender of employees
    Men and women are statistically more likely to suffer from certain illnesses and so they’re priced differently.
  • Occupations
    Riskier occupations (e.g. manual work over desk work) tend to attract a higher premium.
  • Salaries
    Company Critical Illness Insurance payouts are calculated as a multiple of employees’ salaries. This means the insurer will need the salaries of everyone you’re looking to cover and the multiple you want to offer them.
  • Whether everyone is ‘actively at work’               An individual who’s on long-term sickness leave at the time of the quote may attract a higher premium. Alternatively, the insurer may exclude them from cover depending on the nature of their illness.

A group critical illness insurance policy is a benefit your employees may want to take advantage of if it’s offered. We can help you in navigating through multiple option and deciding a suitable plan for your employees.

Already have Critical Illness Insurance? Switching is easy

It might be time to switch insurers whenever the service that your existing insurer provides doesn’t meet your needs. For example, if you have a poor claims experience or an unexplained rate increase, it might be time to consider other options

If you cancel a previous policy before a new policy is effective, you could run into some serious financial problems.
