Critical Illness Coverage

An Employee’s Critical Illness Calls for Critical Measures

Did you know, every year about 785,000 Americans have a heart attack, while another 800,000 suffer from a stroke?1 In addition, more than 485,000 Americans are being treated for kidney failure or end-stage renal disease,2 and more than 1,500 people die each day from cancer.3

The good news is that people are living longer than ever before – partially due to the fact that once-fatal diseases are now treatable. Treatments however, can be very expensive. When one of your employees has a critical illness, it calls for critical measures. 

With critical illness insurance from Nationwide, you can provide employees a lump-sum payment of up to $20,000 to help with expenses if they suffer from a major illness. Covered employees can use this payment to help with the cost of treatment or expenses incurred due to the illness, such as baby-sitters, medical equipment, additional groceries for family members helping during recuperation, or to help pay their major medical deductibles.
