Critical Illness Insurance

Give Your Employees A Fighting Chance

People are living longer than ever before. This is partially due to the fact that once-fatal diseases are now very treatable. The problem is that treatment can be very expensive. But with benefits from Nationwide Insurance, you can provide your employees coverage for a lot of these major illnesses — and for a lot less than you think.

In fact, with this new benefits plan, you can provide the employees you count on every day with a lump-sum amount of up to $10,000 to help with expenses related to the covered critical illnesses: heart attack, stroke, invasive cancer, major organ transplant (including heart), or end-stage renal (kidney) disease.

They can use this lump-sum payment for any number of reasons associated with the treatment of the disease or expenses incurred due to the illness: transportation costs, baby-sitters, medical equipment to use during recovery, additional groceries for family caregivers who need to stay during recuperation, and even to pay their major medical deductible.
