Critical Illness Insurance Plan

Insurance Plan

If you or a family member are diagnosed with a critical illness, the last thing you want to spend time worrying about is how much the treatment will cost and whether or not your health insurance will cover it. That’s when having the NEW ADA Critical Illness Insurance Plan can make a big difference.

The NEW ADA Critical Illness Insurance Plan is a smart way to help ensure you have the crucial financial support you need, when you need it most. The insurance plan will pay cash directly to you in the event that you or a covered family member is diagnosed with one of the covered critical illnesses.

Up to $50,000 in a lump sum payment. Payment is made upon first diagnosis of one of the covered critical illnesses for you or a covered family member.

Use the funds any way you want. Pay off medical debt, expensive prescriptions not covered by your health insurance or travel expenses for out-of-town treatments.

Covers 17 critical illnesses. See the complete list of 17 covered illnesses.
