Whole Life Critical Illness Insurance Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between medical insurance and critical illness insurance?
Although both types of insurance offer health protection, their coverage and benefit payout are completely different. Medical insurance offsets the hospitalisation expenses of the insured via reimbursement. As for critical illness insurance, if the insured is diagnosed with a pre-defined illness, a fixed lump sum benefit is payable, and the insurance company usually does not limit the use of the payout.
The more critical illnesses covered, the better the plan?
While some critical illness plans cover more than 100 diseases, about 90% of the critical illness claims come from cancer, heart disease and stroke. Therefore, instead of focusing on the quantity, you should understand the needs and the definitions of the covered critical illnesses to choose a suitable plan.
Why is the definition of critical illness the key to claim success?
The definitions of covered illness often vary among different products, even for common major diseases like cancer. For example, “non-life-threatening cancers” is specifically excluded in certain products. As a result, when choosing critical illness insurance, you should understand the definitions thoroughly as they may affect your claims in the future.
What is the difference between whole life and term critical illness insurance?

Whole life critical illness insurance carries savings component. If the insured does not make any claims, there will be cash value when surrendering the insurance. In general, whole life critical illness insurance has broader coverage, covering more diseases and some for multiple times.

On the contrary, without having savings component, term life critical illness insurance offers pure protection and needs to be renewed every fixed term (e.g. every 5 years or 10 years). The coverage period of term life critical illness insurance is generally up to around age 80.

How much critical illness insurance is enough?
A key purpose of critical illness insurance is to hedge against the risk of lost income due to a major illness. Due to the potential lengthy treatment and recovery time, from a risk management standpoint, some advisors suggest 24 to 36 months of your salary as the coverage amount. However, everyone's needs are different, it is best to consult with a licensed advisor.
