The first ever Critical Illness policy was launched on the 6th August 1983 in South Africa. It was developed by Dr Marius Bernard a cardiac surgeon with no previous knowledge of insurance. He was motivated by the experiences of financial plight of many patients following the diagnosis and treatment of a critical illness.

Their resources were affected by their decreasing ability to earn money needed to fulfil their financial needs. This often bought sacrifices such as selling their family home and even bankruptcy. This financial worry impacted on their health and their recovery was delayed. Stress aggravated their poor health and even sometimes ended in suicide.

After searching for possible solutions, he looked at insurance. Life Insurance policies provided financial security following the death of a policy holder, the trouble was however, that due to the progress with medical science his patients no longer died. They survived or many years after treatment but financially they died. It became obvious to him that insurance was the necessary product and so Critical Illness Cover was born. Now Critical Illness Cover is widespread across the globe including the UK, Europe, Australia, the far east and North America.
