How much would a serious illness cost you?

Financial support when it's needed most.

In Canada, government healthcare typically covers most medical costs. But a serious illness could still end up costing you. During recovery, you’ll often see a loss or reduction of income which can make it difficult to manage your ongoing financial obligations.

Critical Illness Insurance from Pacific Blue Cross provides financial support, should a critical illness strike, so you can focus on what matters most – your health.

It can help pay:

  • Rent or mortgage
  • Child care costs
  • Property taxes/condo fees
  • Groceries
  • Loans and credit card payments
  • Home maintenance
  • Utilities
  • Replacement of spousal salary
  • Home adaptation
  • In-home support

What's the risk?

Pacific Blue Cross Critical Illness Insurance

When diagnosed with an eligible condition, you’ll receive a one-time, lump sum payment once the survival period has been met. The money can be used any way you choose – child care costs, mortgage payments, groceries, or even a family vacation. You’ll have financial support so the focus can be put on your recovery.
