Do You Need An Additional Critical Illness Policy?

Critical illness, as the name suggests, refers to illnesses or diseases that can impact you deeply and could be life threatening as well. These illnesses may create physical and emotional imbalance. If an individual suffers from any of these critical illnesses, he or she may not be able to lead a normal lifestyle. This may lead to loss of income and create financial insecurity in family. For treating a critical illness, you have to bear a lot of medical expenses and for meeting such exorbitant expenses you may end up draining your savings. To avoid hampering lifelong savings and combat against financial short comings for medical treatment, it is always advisable to buy medical insurance with critical illness cover.

Critical illness policy can be opted in two ways, first is buying an exclusive critical illness plan for more than 15 critical diseases or take it as add-on rider with your base health insurance plans.
