Critical Illness Insurance

Guardian Critical Illness Insurance

Critical illness insurance provides employees an affordable protection from the financial hardship that may accompany a critical illness. If you suffer a critical illness such as cancer, heart attack, or stroke, your financial burden may include many expenses not covered by medical insurance. Everyday bills such as rent, or mortgage will have to be paid, even though your income may be compromised. You may have to travel to a treatment center in another city. And even with the best medical insurance, you’ll still be responsible for copays and more.
