Critical Illness` insurance is designed to help team members offset the financial effects of a catastrophic illness with a lump sum benefit if an insured is diagnosed with a covered specified disease. The amount of the benefit is based on the amount of coverage in effect on the date of diagnosis of a specified disease or the date treatment is received according to the terms and provisions of the policy.
Benefit: $10,000 (Team Member), $5,000 (Spouse and Children from Birth to age 26)
Each benefit payable will be no more than 100% of the Critical Illness benefit amount. The maximum amount payable during the insured person’s lifetime is called the total maximum benefit. You may be eligible to receive benefit payments for multiple conditions, up to the total maximum benefit amount. Each diagnosis must be a different diagnosis.
The total maximum benefit amount equals two times the Critical Illness benefit amount for each covered condition. Once the total maximum benefit for a covered condition has been paid, no further benefits are payable for that same covered condition.
