    Critical illness insurance provides a tax-free ‘lump sum’ payment if you’re diagnosed with a illness covered by your insurance policy. It can pay your mortgage, debts, or home retrofit to accommodate your medical condition. You should be able to go online to a brokerage firm that offers several critical illness policies to select the one that is right for you.

    To buy critical illness insurance in California, visit a health insurance website to see if they offer it. Some life insurance agencies also carry critical illness insurance. Be sure to read carefully the conditions covered, what is excluded, and how much is paid in the event you are diagnosed with that illness, and compare features with a couple of policies to get your best one.

    If purchasing critical illness insurance in California, I would recommend Assurity or Mutual of Omaha.  Both carriers offer great plans that cover a wide range of illnesses.  You could also check out Lloyds of London, but that's probably only your best option if you have significant health history.
