Critical Illness.

Cover for unexpected costs that come with a serious illness.

Take care of those costs. Take care of yourself.

We don’t joke about how life-changing getting a critical illness can be. That’s why you need serious insurance that covers any lifestyle changes you need to make, as well as any extra costs your medical aid won’t pay for.

Living through a serious illness isn’t only hard on you – it’s also hard on your loved ones. Get critical illness cover that pays out a lump sum that you can use any way you choose: whether it’s employing a nurse so your family can take a break, or covering extra treatment your medical aid won’t pay for. 

We also offer Comprehensive Cancer Cover that covers a range of cancers, from stage 0 to stage 4. If cancer is in your future,  with Hollard the only thing you need to worry about is your return to health. Get the finances taken care of, so you and your family can take care of each other.
