Critical Illness Insurance

Watch Dr. Marius Barnard describe his work as a pioneering heart surgeon and how he developed critical illness insurance. Watch it here.

An integral part of a comprehensive benefits plan

Everyone knows someone who has suffered a serious illness. As public awareness of critical illness has grown, employers and employees are recognizing the value of adding this insurance to their group benefit programs.

A benefits plan plays a critical role in enhancing employees' well-being and building loyalty. Critical illness insurance is not intended to replace other benefits - it is designed to complement them.

Offering CI as part of a benefits plan can help employees protect themselves and their families if they should face a serious illness. They will be better able to access the medical treatment they need and to focus on their recovery without worrying about the financial burden. Employers benefit from improved employee loyalty and productivity and enhanced recognition as an employer of choice.

Giving employees more

There may be a misconception among employers and employees that additional coverage is not necessary given the benefits they already have. However, not all critical illnesses result in a disability claim, nor do all of the costs associated with a serious illness qualify for health benefits. CI can provide an added level of security to help fill any gaps in an overall financial protection plan.

Critical Illness insurance complements disability, life, and health benefits. If employees should suffer a covered illness, they would be paid a one-time, lump sum benefit following a specified survival period and approval of their claim. The benefit is paid regardless of whether they are able to work or what expenses they have incurred. Employees collect the full amount even if they make a full recovery. And, they can use the money any way they want - to seek other treatment, buy specialized equipment or pay down their mortgage.

What Our Clients say

"I met with Mark after hearing his radio ads. We met in his office and I found him to be extremely professional. I really appreciated his orientation and process. It wasn't only about insurance, albeit, this was a very important reason for our meeting. He was genuinely interested in finding out about me and my family and our aspirations and goals to determine what was best for us. Mark was very flexible with my busy travel schedule. He followed through even as I experienced a significant move and corporate change. Mark will be a big asset to any senior executive who doesn't have the time or urgency to look after important family matters. I recommend him highly."

He spent a significant amount of time reviewing our situation and recommending the appropriate options for us. We found him to be both practical and personable and we would highly recommend Mark to all professionals, particularly with young families. It will be time well spent."
