What factors do the insurance companies use to determine if I am eligible to receive critical illness benefits?
Under most policies, a critical illness
is one that results in the loss of independence. Cancer, stroke, heart attack, heart surgery, kidney failure, organ transplantation, brain tumour, paralysis, coma, permanent disability, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's diseases, and multiple sclerosis may qualify you. Check with your critical illness insurance
lawyer to help identify the specific provisions of your contract.
