Overview Dread disease Hospital plan Personal accident

Dread disease insurance provides you with financial protection against the high cost of a serious illness. It is an ideal "top-up" policy to your medical aid.

With a Dread disease insurance plan you will receive a cash lump sum benefit should you be diagnosed as suffering from a serious condition, such as kidney failure or cancer. The cost of treatment for such conditions could result in serious financial problems but with this insurance plan, you will receive a tax-free cash benefit to help you to pay your medical bills. Even if you are covered by a medical aid plan, you are still entitled to benefits. These benefits are paid directly to you.
