What if I have a diagnosis of cancer and the insurance company says it’s not the right type of cancer?
The wording of the policy must be reviewed carefully to determine whether the type
that has been diagnosed meets the criteria for a critical illness payout. The law states that, if the policy wording is unclear, the proper interpretation would be to decide in favour of the claimant rather than the insurance company
, as they drafted the wording.
