Serious illness insurance
Serious illness insurance is also known as trauma cover. If you have a serious illness, this cover can provide a lump sum payment to help with unexpected expenses such as medical bills, your living expenses and mortgage repayments.

The illnesses covered vary from company to company, though most cover some of the most  common serious illnesses people are affected by; malignant cancer, stroke, heart attack and coronary bypass surgery.

If you suffer from one of the illnesses in the circumstances covered by your policy, you will receive a cash benefit. Of the products Choosi can directly arrange, the cover offered varies between $50,000 and $750,000.
