Specified disease insurance

Financial relief when it's needed most

A cancer diagnosis, heart attack or other life-altering condition usually means unknown and unexpected costs. Specified disease insurance helps lessen the impact by paying a lump-sum benefit so insureds can concentrate on their recovery, rather than their finances.


Product highlights

Benefit amounts available in $1,000 increments, up to $50,0001.

Guaranteed-issue coverage available2.

Health screening benefit available.

Skin cancer benefit available per person, per calendar year.

How it works

The first time an insured is diagnosed with a covered condition after the coverage is in effect, they will receive a one-time, lump-sum benefit equal to their plan's benefit amount for that condition, and they can spend this benefit however they choose.

Covered conditions include:
Invasive cancer
Minor cancer3
Heart attack
Obstructive coronary artery disease
Major organ failure
End-stage renal disease
