You've been paying into critical illness insurance with the expectation that it would cushion you financially in the event of a severe medical diagnosis. This type of insurance is meant to cover substantial costs from treatments and help sustain your lifestyle during recovery periods. However, when the time comes to rely on this insurance, it is crucial to have strong legal backing to navigate any disputes and ensure your insurer upholds their part of the agreement.

Common reasons why critical illness insurance claims are denied

Pre-existing conditions
Incomplete diagnosis
Non-disclosure of medical history or lifestyle factors such as smoking or alcohol use
The illness is covered but has not progressed enough to satisfy the definition
The illness is covered but the policy definition has a narrow definition of the form or category of the covered illness
