Yes, it's possible to obtain critical illness cover without life insurance protection attached.
Statistically, you're more likely to fall critically ill during your working life than to pass away, highlighting the need for such cover.
Arranging critical illness cover without life insurance will only protect you against serious, life-changing illness but not if you were to pass away.
At Reassured, we don’t offer critical illness cover as a standalone policy, although we can arrange life insurance with critical illness cover for a similar price to standalone critical illness; offering extra protection at no extra cost.

Keep reading for everything you need to know about critical illness cover without life insurance…
Standalone critical illness cover is a policy that protects you if you were to become ill with a life-changing, yet not terminal illness.
If diagnosed with an illness covered in your policy you can make a claim and you'll receive a pay out.
This pay out could be used to cover lost income, pay for private medical treatment or to make necessary adaptations to your home.
Unlike a combined critical illness policy which includes life insurance, you'll not be covered if you pass away for any reason.
Therefore, this product won't be suitable if you're looking to protect yourself against terminal illness, accidental death or death from natural causes.
As mentioned, we are able to provide critical illness cover with life insurance for the same price as a standalone critical illness policy.
So why not get in touch to arrange additional cover for a similar price.
As discussed, a standalone critical illness policy will protect you from many serious illnesses but not terminal illness or death.
The serious illnesses you'll be protected by will vary significantly between providers, making it essential to compare quotes to ensure you get the most comprehensive cover for the best price.
Typically, all standalone critical illness policies will cover you against heart attack, stroke and some cancers.
Additional illnesses you'll be protected for may include:
The cost of critical illness cover will vary depending on your personal circumstances and cover you wish to arrange, whether this is combined with life insurance or not.
The insurer will use a number of factors to determine the level of risk you pose and therefore, the likelihood of a claim being made.
These factors include:
At Reassured, we can arrange critical illness cover with life insurance from as little as 20p-a-day.

The key difference between standalone and combined critical illness cover is whether or not a life insurance element is attached.
A standalone critical illness policy will only protect you if you become ill with a life-changing, yet not terminal illness.
Combined critical illness cover, on the other hand, encompasses life insurance, providing the added benefit of a pay out also being made if you were to pass away or become terminally ill.
Whilst only one pay out will be made, upon first instance, it does cover multiple aspects, meaning cover is more comprehensive.
For example, if you were to be diagnosed with cancer and given 12 months to live, you would be able to claim on the terminal illness benefit of a combined critical illness policy, but such benefit wouldn't be included within a standalone policy.
The good news is, it's not usually much more expensive to arrange combined cover, than it is stand alone.
Therefore, it's essential to compare quotes to ensure you receive the most comprehensive cover for the best price.
The most common reason for arranging standalone critical illness cover is to run alongside an existing life insurance policy.
Critical illness cover tends to be significantly more expensive than life insurance as a pay out is more likely to occur.
Therefore, when arranging protection, it's not uncommon to arrange life insurance only due to budget.
When budget increases, you may wish to arrange standalone critical illness cover for the additional layer of protection.
However, due to a minimal difference in cost, in this instance, it may be beneficial to take out a combined life insurance with critical illness cover policy.
Then, if you were to pass away, your loved ones will benefit from multiple life insurance pay outs, whilst you can also enjoy the protection of critical illness cover whilst you're alive.
As discussed, the cost and cover of critical illness can vary significantly between providers, making it essential to compare quotes for the best deal.
Our FCA regulated service can help you gain all the information you need to make an informed decision on the right solution for you.
We can arrange combined cover from as little as 20p-a-day and our broker service is free of charge.
So, get in touch today and start your journey to being comprehensively protected.
