BENEFIT PAYMENT Your Initial Benefit provides a lump-sum payment upon the first diagnosis of a Covered Condition. Your plan pays a Recurrence Benefit 4 for the following Covered Conditions: Heart Attack, Stroke, Coronary Artery Bypass Graft, Full Benefit Cancer and Partial Benefit Cancer. A Recurrence Benefit is only available if an Initial Benefit has been paid for the Covered Condition. There is a Benefit Suspension Period between Recurrences. The maximum amount that you can receive through your Critical Illness Insurance plan is called the Total Benefit and is 3 times the amount of your Initial Benefit. This means that you can receive multiple Initial Benefit and Recurrence Benefit payments until you reach the maximum of 300% or $30,000 or $60,000.

Please refer to the table below for the percentage benefit amount for each Covered Condition.
