I found this video on YouTube, made a few years ago by Mutual of Omaha, a US-based insurance company. An older video, but still a powerful story. It is one family’s message of how Critical Illness Insurance made a big difference in their lives. Worth five minutes of your time to see what having this vital coverage can mean to you.
From the video description:
Critical Insurance was first developed by world famous heart surgeon, Dr. Marius Barnard, who, with his brother Christiaan, performed the worlds first successful human-to-human heart transplant in South Africa in 1967. Critical Insurance fills a need that no other insurance product does. It pays a lump sum of tax free cash upon diagnosis of one of a number of specified illnesses which can be used to replace lost income during a lengthy illness, to pay off your debt, or to pay for the treatment YOU chose, regardless of whether it is covered under your health insurance or not.
