XcelHR introduces critical insurance covering 22 critical illnesses.

Rockville, MD – September 17, 2018 – Critical illness can decimate people’s finances and cause a devastating amount of life stress and strain. According to MetLife, in order to cover the costs of critical illnesses, 40% or people borrowed money, 47% had higher credit card balances, 44% couldn’t pay their bills, and 64% withdrew funds from their savings. With employee needs in mind, XcelHR is now offering critical illness insurance to clients, provided by MetLife.

Critical illness insurance has your back

MetLife’s critical illness insurance provides coverage for 22 listed critical illnesses, including cancer, heart attack, stroke and more. It helps offset expenses not reimbursed by other types of insurance; however, it is not a replacement for traditional medical or disability income insurance. Critical insurance covers employees, their spouses or domestic partners, and children. They can receive payment within 10 business days after a short, three-step claims process.
