Critical Illness Insurance

This course offers an overview of critical illness insurance. A relatively new product, critical illness insurance is intended to provide benefits that can fill the financial gaps that traditional health or medical expense insurance does not cover when a serious or life-threatening condition strikes. Available as both individual coverage and group coverage, critical illness insurance is becoming more and more popular as employers rework their health insurance benefit plans, as consumers bear ever greater amounts of their health care and health insurance costs, and as the rates of surviving life-threatening illnesses continue to rise. When an individual or family’s financial security is threatened because of a serious illness, critical illness insurance can provide support to help keep a financial future on track. 

The course includes the following chapters:
  • What Is Critical Illness Insurance?
  • The Appeal of Critical Illness Insurance
  • Critical Illness Insurance Policies
  • The Business of Critical Illness Insurance
