Frequently asked questions

For Critical Illness insurance amounts issued without evidence of insurability, no benefit will be paid for any critical illness that occurs within 24 months of your start date of coverage, and that resulted from any injury, sickness or medical condition (whether they were diagnosed) for which you had signs, symptoms, consulted a physician or other health-care practitioner or was provided any health-related care, advice or treatment, or that a reasonably prudent person with such injury, sickness or medical condition would have consulted a physician or any other health-care practitioner, during the 24 months prior to the start date of your coverage.

A separate pre-existing condition limitation period will apply to each amount issued without evidence of insurability.
