Do you know there are many unknown costs associated with having a critical illness?
In Canada, government health care programs typically cover most medical costs. However, critical illnesses often result in extra costs including:
Adaptive equipment or home modifications
Alternative treatments and experimental drugs
Travel and accommodations for treatments
Child care expenses
Additionally, you may experience loss of income due to time away from work to recover from your illness or to care for a loved one. In time of need, the Critical Illness benefit will put a tax-free, lump sum cash payment in your pocket to help pay unexpected costs or protect your hard-earned savings during your recovery. You can use the money however you want and there is coverage available without answering any medical questions.
