Most of those who purchase critical illness insurance do so when they are not facing a critical illness and have no “plans” to have one. It’s only when someone is diagnosed and begins to move through a critical illness that they find out whether their insurance actually meets their needs. And many say they’d like to see their coverage provide more than what they’re getting.
