Critical Illness Insurance Claims in Ontario

Critical illness (CI) insurance is designed as a financial safety net for individuals diagnosed with severe health conditions. Unlike standard health insurance, this coverage provides a one-time lump-sum payment upon diagnosis of a specified illness. The policy typically covers serious illnesses such as: 

  • Cancer
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Alzheimer’s 
  • Parkinson’s
  • Major organ failure
  • Paralysis
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • and more

After a diagnosis of a critical illness, the policyholder must undergo a specified ‘survival period,’ usually around 30 days, before the claim can be processed. This period is intended to confirm the persistence and severity of the illness. 

If the claim is approved once the survival period is complete, the lump sum payout is made. These funds can be used to cover medical treatments, income loss, or caregiving expenses. Unfortunately, legitimate claims are at times denied by insurers. This is when the support of a critical illness insurance lawyer is needed.
