Sickness Insurance

Anyone can be diagnosedunderline with an illness. No matter how healthy your lifestyle is, there is always the risk that your health will falter and you will be given the important task of restoring it. Sickness Insurance provides you with benefits if you are diagnosed with a disease that leads to permanent medical disability or temporary loss of work capacity.

More About Sickness Insurance

Sickness Insurance is made up of two types of protection: disability benefits and a daily allowance. You can choose to purchase just one type of coverage or both.

Disability benefits

  • If you get an illness that leads to disability, you will receive benefits if your Health Insurance includes disability coverage.
  • If the illness results in a permanent medical disability assessed at 25% or more, your benefits will be paid out in a lump sum.
  • If the illness results in a permanent medical disability that is assessed at 100%, you will be paid the entire amount of the benefits, while a proportional percentage of the benefits will be paid if the disability is less than 100%.

Daily allowance

  • If you get an illness that results in you not being able to do your job, you will receive a daily allowance if your Sickness Insurance includes the provision of a daily allowance.
  • If you temporarily lose 50% or more of your work capacity, you will receive a daily allowance from the end of the waiting period if you are unable to work according to the assessment of a doctor or until a disability assessment has taken place.
  • The waiting period is the amount of time you need to wait before you will receive benefits.
