Child CI claims among most common

Providers highlight importance of specialist children’s cover

Claims for children’s critical illness cover are among the top five most common, according to Sam Barrett in this month’s protection spotlight.

Scottish Provident, for example, paid out £11m for 569 children’s critical illness claims between 1996 and 2012. Although it only accounted for 1 per cent of all claims, this expense made it the fifth most common payout.

Although it is the last thing a parent wants to think about, critical illness in childhood is a reality for some families. It is not just a crushing blow, but also puts enormous strain on finances. Ms Barrett said because of the combination of parental fears and the relative rarity of claims, it is an area recognised as profitable by insurers.

According to Defaqto, of the 37 critical illness plans it has listed, just six do not include children’s cover — half of which are plans from friendly societies. Although insurers have considered reducing the number of conditions to trigger a child’s claim, it is standard practice to cover children for the same illnesses that their parents are covered for.

This protection plan goes beyond the cost of treatment alone. For example, Macmillan Cancer Support has put the average cost of hospital car parking at £6.13

Bonnie Burns, product and technical director of individual protection at Legal & General said, “It is enough of a strain if a child is ill but a critical illness payout can take care of some of the financial worries. There can be additional travel and accommodation expenses and a parent may wish to take unpaid leave to look after their son or daughter.” By Bethany Rutter | Published Aug 01, 2013


PruProtect improves serious illness cover for cancer, heart attack and stroke
Tuesday, 17 September 2013 12:40

Provider also offering new financial incentives for healthy members

PruProtect is making a number of major improvements to its serious illness cover, as well as introducing new financial incentives for customers who engage with its healthy living programme.

At a launch event in London last night, Herschel Mayers (pictured), CEO of PruProtect, said the provider is now able to offer “a new generation of protection insurance” which assesses a person’s risk on an ongoing basis and therefore results in fairer and more accurate pricing.

PruProtect's severity-based serious illness cover now covers all heart attacks and strokes on diagnosis on both its Primary and Comprehensive versions. Comparatively, most traditional policies require a heart attack to be of a certain severity to qualify for a pay out, and require permanent symptoms to be evident before paying out for a stroke. PruProtect’s pay outs for these conditions range from between 25% and 100% of a customer’s cover amount, depending on severity.

Ulcerative Colitis Warning!
Thursday, 15 December 2011 15:13

Manchester United Premiership footballer Darren Fletcher has just been diagnosed at the age of 27 with Ulcerative Colitis which has led to him taking an extended break from his footballing career. This demonstrates that no matter how fit you are or how young you are illness can strike at anytime to anyone.

Do you have the right cover?

Ulcerative Colitis, a disease of the colon, is most common in people between the ages of 15 and 30 but can strike anyone at any time. The disease in many cases can be totally debilitating yet is not covered on the majority of critical illness contracts. Check your policy to see whether you are covered. Recently taken out policies with Friends Life, Bupa or PruProtect offer cover for this condition and Steve Allen Insurance has access to these polices.
