You may have heard of critical illness insurance. It’s an interesting product that has been gaining popularity, partly because it was not designed by an insurance company but by a doctor. Dr. Marius Barnard is a surgeon who was part of a team that performed the world’s first heart transplant in 1967. Barnard saw first-hand the financial hardship his patients suffered when going through a critical illness. He lobbied the insurance industry to introduce a new type of “living benefit” to cover the financial impact of a critical illness. He argued that, as a medical doctor, he can repair a person physically but only insurers can repair a patient and their family’s finances. He felt families needed access to a financial product that could help when hit with random and sudden major health issues such as cancer, heart attack or stroke. In 1983 the first critical illness policy was launched in the U.K. and in the 1990s the concept came to Canada.
