Also known as critical or serious illness cover, trauma insurance provides a lump-sum payment if you suffer from a serious illness. The conditions covered differ between insurers but generally include heart defined attacks, malignant cancers, strokes, coronary and artery bypasses.
Of the products Choosi offers, the cover varies between $50,000 and $750,000. These funds can be used for any purpose, be it covering medical costs, paying off debts or taking a much-needed holiday. It’s important to note that payments are only made if you survive, which means a ‘survival period’ ranging from a few weeks to more than a month applies.
Do you need it?
We all have plans for our family’s future - the question is how would your family cope financially if you were to become seriously ill? Trauma insurance is different to other forms of life insurance in that it pays out on the actual occurrence of the incident - policies like income protection and total and permanent disability (TPD) insurance depend on the effect of the illness after its occurrence.
So if you are concerned about how your family would pay medical bills, cover living costs and repay debts if you were to suffer from a medical trauma, then you may need to consider taking out trauma insurance.
