Why You Should Get a Critical Illness Insurance Cover- All Your Critical Questions Answered

Eliud and his wife, Lucy, are seated in a doctor’s lounge, waiting for their turn to see the doctor.

By UAP Old Mutual Life Team

You see, Eliud has been experiencing intensive stomach pains with erratic bowel movement. When he started losing weight, both he and his wife, Lucy, became concerned. It was then that she suggested they go in for a checkup.

The doctor finally walks in with the test results, and from his body language, you can tell it’s no good news. He takes a deep breath, opens up the printed results, and, informs them that Eliud has bowel cancer.

When a Critical Illness Shows Up

Critical illness can show up at the least expected time, and when it does, it is often life-changing. In most instances, the financial strain that follows worsens the experience for the affected family members, especially when the affected person is the breadwinner.

But this doesn’t have to be the case if, like Eliud, you’ve signed up for a critical illness insurance cover. Eliud has an existing medical cover, but he decided to complement his plan and cover any possibility of getting critically ill. Of course, he didn’t expect to use it, no one does, but the financial implications of treating a critical illness kept him up at night.
