Cancer, Heart Attack or Stroke
Insurance with benefits paid directly to you.

 

 

Cancer, Heart Attack or Stroke plans by Standard Life provide an important safety net.

The sudden and unexpected financial demands can be devastating. Over and above the expenses covered by major medical insurance, these costs come in the form of lost wages, insurance deductibles, non-covered services, special treatment diets and travel lodging and child care arrangements during stays at treatment centers. A financial strain can make this health battle even harder.
