WHAT IS SEVERE ILLNESS COVER?



A severe illness can impact you and your family both emotionally and financially, which is why it pays to plan for the future with severe illness cover.

More and more people are suffering severe illnesses like heart attacks, strokes or cancer. This need not signal a death sentence. There are countless survivors who were able to beat their illness and go on to live a healthy, fulfilling life. This road to recovery is not an easy one both emotionally and financially. GREENLIGHT Severe Illness cover has been designed to make the recovery process far more manageable by paying out a lump sum which can be used to cover the unexpected expenses such as rehabilitation expenses and alternative therapies.
