Critical Illness Insurance
A critical illness – heart attack, cancer, stroke – can strike anyone. CI Insurance pays a lump-sum benefit at first diagnosis of a covered illness or procedure. Benefit dollars may be used to pay anything – the mortgage, deductibles, co-pays, child care, or replace lost wages. Could a $25,000 or $50,000 benefit help relieve your client’s financial stress during a difficult time?

CriticalAdvantage® from Mutual of Omaha
The lump sum benefit in the Critical Advantage policy can be used to fill gaps in your client’s current coverage. Most health coverage issued through employers does not cover all the costs associated with a critical illness and disability insurance is meant to provide people with ongoing income replacement when they are unable to work due to illness or injury.
Since critical advantage pays a lump sum payment upon diagnosis, it can be used to fill gaps like specialized treatments not included in standard health insurance, elimination periods, reduced income and tax implications.
