How Does Critical Illness Insurance Work?

Similar to all other insurance agreements, Critical Illness Insurance covers your losses in case of unfortunate incidents. Here, as the name suggests the loss against which you will be compensated is suffering a critical illness. As unpredictable life can be, insurances have not just saved us in many circumstances, but have also given us some better sleep at night.

Consider having an insurance against your demise and simultaneously having no cover against your illness. Critical Illness will ensure similar burdens on your family as per your demise, and might as well cost your medical expenses over it.
