Take care of yourself

A serious illness diagnosis isn’t the end. It’s the beginning of your new normal. Our Metropolitan Critical Illness plans are designed to help you adapt to the life changes that a serious illness brings. Get a single payment to cover the cost of therapy, healthcare and whatever else comes your way. Here’s how this standalone plan works:

If you are 14 to 64 years old, you can get cover from R150 000 up to R1 500 000.

As you’re willing to do medical tests, we can offer you the best possible payment to start with if you’re healthy.

A Flexi-Premiums benefit lets you lower your payment and cover when times are tough.

Add-on benefits help protect your plan payment and payout.

Choose a Critical Illness Core plan to cover the 4 major critical illnesses - strokes, cancer, heart attacks and coronary artery bypass surgery.

Choose a Critical Illness Comprehensive plan, which covers the 4 major illnesses and 12 others.

Critical Illness is also available as an add-on benefit on your Life Cover plan and depends on your life cover amount.
