Why You Need Critical Illness Insurance

Colonial Life Critical Illness Insurance helps supplement your major medical coverage by providing a lump-sum benefit that is tax free!  When a critical illness strikes, major expenses often follow.  Health insurance may cover some of your medical costs, but not everything.  In addition to your day-to day bills, you could incur costs for treatment and recovery, such as: 

  • Deductibles and co-pays
  • Expenses related to out-of-network treatment and additional medical procedures
  • Travel, lodging and meals during treatment
  • Lifestyle changes that may lead to better heath
  • Rehabilitation and home health services
  • Child care

Good Health


Thankful for Good Health
Being thankful for our health, however, means more than gratitude for being alive itself. On yet another level, it means appreciating the capacities allowed by our health – the cognitive ability to practice our profession and remember our children’s names, the physical ability to walk up six flights of stairs when the elevator is being serviced (or when we just feel like it). It’s the security of knowing we can travel to remote places and deal with whatever conditions we encounter. It’s the freedom to put on a pair of skates or skis and try something new without getting wrapped around fear of frailty. It’s about confidence that we have the strength to move most of our own stuff when need arises and take care of our children, tend to our property, and still have energy to enjoy something of everyday life.

Wellness Screenings
With Colonial life a number of plans can be offered with a wellness/doctor office visit benefit added. 
What does that mean?That means when employees who own these plans visit doctors or have certain tests done they will receive a check directly from Colonial.
