- Medical costs not covered by Government programs or private health insurance
- Cost of personal or dependent care
- Mortgage payments while away from work
- Transportation to and from treatment.
Some covered conditions include cancer, heart attack, stroke, MS and paralysis. Coverage is typically guaranteed medically up to a certain threshold and additional protection is often available.
