Critical Illness Insurance

The Alberta Medical Association's Critical Illness Insurance provides a one-time lump-sum benefit payment if you are diagnosed with one of 25 covered conditions (subject to a survival period — usually 30 days).

You or your spouse can use the benefit to cover costs such as:

  • Expensive medicines and treatments
  • Child care
  • Home maintenance and renovation
  • Health care required outside Canada
  • The loss of income of a spouse who is caring for you
  • Personal or business loans
