Friends Provident has enhanced its critical illness cover with the addition of mastectomy cover and five ABI+ conditions.
The five ABI+ conditions are for heart attack, benign brain tumour, coronary artery by-pass grafts, heart valve replacement or repair, and coma.
These improvements have also been extended to Friends’ children’s critical illness product.
Friends will also pay out 20 per cent of the client’s sum assured or £15,000, whichever is less, if a mastectomy is required to treat a carcinoma in situ of the breast, a cell abnormality which can lead to breast cancer.
The additional mastectomy cover will not reduce the original sum assured if the client needs to make a further claim.
