Trustmark Offers a Full Range of Critical Illness Insurance Benefits for Spouse and Dependents

07/13/2010

LAKE FOREST, Ill. – Trustmark Voluntary Benefit Solutions, a leading provider of payroll-deducted voluntary benefits, announces a full range of worksite critical illness (CI) insurance benefits are now available to employees’ spouses as well as dependents through their employer. 

“As of July, we provide a more flexible critical illness insurance product that is offered to spouses and dependent family members,” said Dave Cirulis, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Not only do we offer a 100 percent CI benefit to other family members now, but we have extended our scope by adding scaled benefit amounts to choose from as well, which provides a range of very affordable premiums.” 

Trustmark’s critical illness insurance provides a lump-sum payment upon diagnosis of a covered critical illness. The lump-sum benefit can be used to fill in gaps left by major medical insurance, including follow-up care, travel to medical facilities, co-payments and other out-of-pocket medical and prescription costs. 

“After a critical illness such as a heart attack, stroke, or other specified disease, out-of-pocket costs can mount quickly, causing significant financial hardship or even bankruptcy,” said Alex Moral, Trustmark’s Senior Vice President. “The irony is as more people are surviving rather than dying from critical illnesses, they frequently do not have the financial resources to pay for the associated medical costs. With critical illness insurance, more families can concentrate on recovery instead of worrying about how to pay the bills,” added Moral.
 
Trustmark’s critical illness insurance offers high benefit amounts, a health screening benefit, a membership to Best Doctors® and the option to elect guaranteed coverage increases through EZValue. Trustmark’s Double Benefit covers a second critical illness and Occupational HIV is available to some industries as a covered illness, which is ideal for workers who face the hazard of contracting HIV daily. Additionally, Trustmark critical illness insurance has no benefit reduction due to age and policies are portable, meaning when employees leave their place of employment, they can take their policy with them.
