What is trauma insurance?
When you take out trauma insurance, your insurer will pay out a lump sum if you are diagnosed with a specified illness or injury that will have a significant impact on your life, such as a stroke or cancer.
If you are unexpectedly diagnosed with a serious illness or are injured, it can affect your ability to work and provide for yourself and family. The lump sum payment you receive if you need to make a claim on your trauma insurance can provide significant peace of mind during a difficult time.
The set amount that you receive can be used to pay for medical bills outside of your health insurance, debt repayments, transport costs and any additional care that you might need - as well as everyday expenses.
Always carefully read your Product Disclosure Statement before taking out trauma insurance, to ensure that you understand which illnesses and injuries are covered by your policy as it will vary between insurers.
How much trauma insurance cover do I need?
Every person is different, so there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to how much trauma insurance you need. However, having the right amount of cover for your personal circumstances is important. Having too little can mean you are not adequately covered if you need to claim, while too much can mean you’re paying more than you need to in monthly premiums.
When deciding how much trauma insurance cover to take out, you need to consider what your future looks like — for yourself and your family. If you were to become seriously ill or injured and unable to work, would you have enough savings to cover your debts, school fees and mortgage repayments for 3 months, 6 months or more?
You may also have unexpected costs like medical expenses outside of your health insurance, transport costs and specialist treatments.
