Critical illness insurance that offers a lifetime of benefits
While medical insurance pays your doctor for treatment, Critical HealthEvents pays you cash directly to help with your other needs. It takes care of your budget in difficult times, so that you can fully focus on your health.
Benefits for early diagnosis and no lifetime maximum
Critical HealthEvents was designed, with advice from people like you, to do more. Instead of a single payment, you can get paid a part of your chosen coverage amount for conditions diagnosed at earlier or less serious stages. Not only that, your benefit restores to its full amount every calendar year. And it’s affordable because we focused on the three conditions that cause over 90% of our critical illness claims1 – cancer, heart attack, and stroke.
Even if your medical insurance covers any or all of your bills – you still get the same amount. We pay the money directly to you, and it’s yours to use however you want.
You can use these services at any time, and because membership is included with your policy there is no additional cost to use them. Not only that, but eligible members of your immediate family can use the services, too!

Frequently Asked Questions
It works in addition to your medical insurance! Trustmark doesn’t coordinate with any other insurance you have, and we pay you directly, so you will get your full benefit even if your medical insurance pays the entire cost of your care.
What is a “critical illness;” what types of conditions are covered?
Many Critical HealthEvents policies cover cancer, heart attack and stroke. Unlike most critical illness policies, Critical HealthEvents offers partial payments for certain early or less serious forms of these events.
Some employers offer plans that only cover cancer and some employers offer plans that cover heart attack and stroke but not cancer. Ask your benefits representative or an enroller to find out the coverage you’re being offered.
What does it mean that Critical HealthEvents has a “replenishing benefit?”
At the start of every calendar year, 100% of your annual maximum benefit is available again, no matter how many benefits you have received previously.
How long will it take Trustmark to handle my claim?
We process Critical HealthEvents claims within five business days, which includes communication with you to confirm our payment or ask you for more information.
What can I spend my benefits on?
Anything! We pay you directly, so you can use the money for anything you want.
