When employers offer our Critical Illness Insurance, they’re giving employees access to added protection that they can only gain through the workplace. And with value-added services from TELUS® Health Care Centres and PinnacleCare, employees get best-in-class medical concierge assistance for locating the right doctors and facilities for their care.
Here’s How It Works: Employees choose benefits to protect themselves and any family members. Then, if diagnosed with a covered critical illness, they will receive a cash benefit based on the percentage payable for the condition. If they have a question regarding a diagnosed or suspected critical illness, or need help filing a claim, a Nurse Navigator can help address their concerns. Covered critical illnesses include: heart attack, stroke, major organ failure, kidney failure, carcinoma in situ, invasive cancer, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and more – depending on which coverage is selected.
