Serious illness vs. Critical illness

See how our cover compares to other providers

How does our cover compare?

Our award-winning Serious Illness Cover has been designed to reflect the modern trends in illness by providing more comprehensive cover than traditional plans. Our cover better reflects the impact has on your client’s lifestyle and is more likely to stay in place following a claim. In fact, because our cover is so different, comparing against other providers isn’t always easy which is why we’ve created the tool.

Don’t just take our word for it, Defaqto have verified the information to make sure that it is fair, transparent and representative.

Please note: This tool works better on a larger screen.
