General information regarding Trauma Insurance

  • Trauma insurance is typically purchased as a standalone policy, but it can also be purchased as a rider to a life insurance policy.
  • The cost of trauma insurance depends on your age, health, and the amount of cover you need.
  • Not all trauma insurance policies cover the same illnesses. Make sure to read the policy carefully to understand what is covered.
  • The amount of cover you need will depend on your individual circumstances. Consider your medical expenses, lost income, and other expenses that you may need to cover if you are diagnosed with a serious illness.
  • Some trauma insurance policies have a waiting period, which is the time period that must elapse before you can make a claim. Make sure to choose a policy with a short waiting period.

1. Trauma insurance vs life insurance – is there a difference?

Trauma insurance is different from life insurance. Trauma insurance pays you a lump sum payment if you’re seriously ill or injured to help you potentially recover and return to work. Life insurance, conversely, is a policy that pays a lump sum to a designated beneficiary, e.g., your family, in the event of your death.

2. What is considered a trauma accident?

A trauma accident is generally considered one that results in a serious injury, such as head trauma, a lost limb, loss of sight or hearing, severe burns, etc. Additionally, you can claim trauma insurance for an illness, such as cancer, heart conditions, and neurological conditions like dementia.
