Of course, if there is anything you would still like to ask us, please feel free to contact your Scottish Provident sales consultant. You can find details at the back of this pack.

5 Going beyond the ABI standards Claims paid history - a company you can trust Scottish Provident was at the forefront of the protection industry in developing critical illness definitions which exceeded the cover provided under the ABI s standard definitions. You and your clients will have the peace of mind knowing that we have gone above and beyond industry set standards, thereby increasing the probability that they will be covered if they ever need to claim. The seven definitions that go beyond the ABI standard are shown on the right: Our ABI+ definitions Aorta graft surgery Benign brain tumour Coma Coronary artery bypass grafts Heart attack Heart valve replacement or repair How do we go beyond the standard? We cover surgery for traumatic injury to the aorta. We have removed the requirement for permanent neurological deficit with persisting clinical symptoms if the tumour is surgically removed. Our definition does not require the claimant to be on a life support system. We have maintained our position of allowing keyhole surgery for this definition. We do not require evidence of typical clinical symptoms (for example chest pain) to admit a heart attack claim. We have maintained our position of allowing keyhole surgery for this definition. We deliver on our promises. We pay out! In 2009 we paid out almost 94 million in critical illness (CI) claims. Here are some other useful statistics: 91.3% of claims in 2009 were successful Of the unpaid claims, 7% were not paid due to the illness not meeting our critical illness definition 1.7% of all claims not paid related to non-disclosure 62% of all claims were related to cancer claims. Source: Scottish Provident critical illness claims paid report (1 January to 31 December 2009). 62 % Cancer HIV infection We have extended our definition to include other countries, so that the claimant is not restricted to becoming infected within the UK. 12 % Heart Attack Please refer to either the Self Assurance product guide or the Pegasus critical illness definitions guide for a full list of our critical illness definitions. 12 % Other 3 % Children s Critical Illness 5 % 6 % Stroke Multiple Sclerosis 93,854,664 paid out in critical illness claims in 2009.
