  • Approximately 1.5 million Americans suffer a heart attack each year.

    Of these, 1.1 million survive at least three (3) years.

  • Over 40% of the population will develop breast, prostrate, or some

    form of cancer at some point in their lives.

  • The probability of surviving a critical illness before age 65 is almost

    twice as great as dying.

What Is Critical Illness Insurance?

  • Critical illness insurance (C.I.I.) has characteristics of both life insurance and health insurance.

  • C.I.I. pays a life insurance-type lump sum benefit, upon diagnosis of one of a number of critical illnesses rather than upon death.

C.I.I. Coverage

  • C.I.I. will pay a lump sum benefit after the insured is diagnosed with a critical illness. Virtually all products cover the “Big Three”:

    • Heart Attack

    • Stroke

    • Life Threatening Cancer

  • Nearly 70% of all deaths under age 75 are associated with heart disease, stroke and cancer.

  • The big three l.jpg
    The “Big Three”

    • Heart Attack

    • Death of a portion of the heart muscle (myocardium) from a blockage of one or more coronary arteries.

    • Stroke

      • Any acute cerebrovascular accident producing permanent neurological impairment resulting in at least thirty (30) days of paralysis or other measurable neurological deficit.

    • Life Threatening Cancer

      • Only those types of cancer shown by the presence of a malignancy identified by the uncontrolled growth and spread of malignant cells and the invasion of tissue that could result in death.

    • Medical technology is keeping people alive longer

    • The concern today is not dying too soon – it’s living long

    People living longer l.jpg
    People Living Longer

    • 65 year old male can expect to live to age 83

    • 65 year old female can expect to live to age 87

    Attitudinal trends l.jpg
    Attitudinal Trends

    • Consumers have greater fears than premature death, such as:

      • The cost of health care

      • Cost of nursing homes

      • Having enough income to retire

    Life insurance industry trends l.jpg

    • Demographics favor living benefits over death benefits

    • THE RESULT: Individual life sales have declined

      30% over the past ten (10) years.

    Why c i coverage l.jpg
    Why C.I. Coverage?

    • Probability of surviving C.I. before age 65 is almost twice that of dying

    • Costs associated with C.I. are not covered by traditional insurance

    Why c i coverage19 l.jpg
    Why C.I. Coverage?

    • EXAMPLE: Two-thirds of all cancer-related costs are indirect,

      non-medical expenses, such as:

      • Lost income for C.I. Survivor

      • Lost income and work time for spouse or care giver

      • Housekeeping and child care expenses

      • Home health care needs

      • Home or car modifications

      • Non-covered experimental treatments

      • Expenses not covered by insurance (including co-payments

      • and deductibles)

    If you survive a critical illness what will you do l.jpg
    If you survive a critical illness, what will you do?

    • Life Insurance – with rare exception, not available while the

      sufferer is alive. Intended for dependents or beneficiaries.

    • Health Insurance – Possible limited benefits

      deductibles/co-pays. May be limited in scope of portability if the

      sufferer leaves his/her employment.

    If you survive a critical illness what will you do21 l.jpg
    If you survive a critical illness, what will you do?

    • Disability Insurance – pays a percentage of the sufferer’s

      monthly income and benefits are dependent upon ability to


    • Long Term Care – limited to a daily benefit available subject

      to a hospital stay or home nursing requirements.

    • Accumulation Products – intended to provide supplemental

      retirement income.

      to exercise choice.

    Essentials25 l.jpg

    • Any life insurance product design can, in principle, be

      be duplicated in a corresponding C.I.I. product by

      exchanging the key probability of death (qx) for the key

      probability of a diagnosis of critical illness (ix)

      • time after the issue date of the policy.

    • Survival Period

      • Built on assumptions that the purpose of C.I.I.
