Critical Illness Insurance

Secure peace of mind and financial stability with critical illness insurance, providing comprehensive coverage for unexpected health crises.

Critical Illness Insurance

Critical Illness insurance pays a lump sum benefit to the insured upon suffering an initial diagnosis of a list of medical conditions. These include heart attack, stroke, cancer, advanced Alzheimer’s Disease, an major organ failure. Partial benefits are paid for coronary bypass surgery and angioplasty.

  • Determine a lump sum benefit amount that suits your family’s income needs. Pick a smaller amount to offset your medical out of pocket expenses or a more significant amount if you need income replacement.

  • Use your benefits to hire domestic help or childcare, to pay for necessary home modifications or for whatever you see fit.

  • Benefits are paid directly to you not to your health insurance carrier or medical provider.

Cancer Insurance

A Cancer diagnosis is a devastating event for the individual and their family. Unfortunately, the financial ramifications of this diagnosis may eventually prove to be the most disastrous. A recent study suggested that, even with health insurance, on average an individual would have $712 of additional expenses each month during their battle with cancer.

  • Cancer Insurance plans include a lump sum initial diagnosis benefit providing you immediate income for lost wages.

  • Benefits are paid directly to you to offset your medical bills or as income replacement for the period of time you are out of work.

  • Benefits are paid for costs you incur that are not covered by your health insurance. Such as: Transportation, lodging and meal benefits for both the insured and the insured’s family, new or experimental treatment options and in-home or hospice care.

  • Premiums are not grouped by age and once the policy is issued, it is guaranteed renewable for life at your initial premium rate.

“Great service from a first class, expert health insurance specialist who really knows the small group and individual business.
David F.
Fullerton, CA
“Navigating small business insurance in WA State is difficult. I think finding a fabulous insurance broker is equally as difficult. Gordon came as a referral from a dear friend who has utilized his services for many years. Gordon didn't disappoint. He is knowledgeable, very responsive, and I always felt he had my best interest at heart as we navigated my unique situation. Even if you are in the individual market, he can help you there as well.

“My husband and I have a COBRA plan which is set to expire and no other health insurance benefits through work. Gordon expertly helped us find new health insurance at a lower price starting next year - and walked us through the pros and cons of each plan on the Health Plan Finder. It would have been impossible to navigate this on our own. It is a very scary time to be without health insurance and limited income - and we are deeply grateful for his guidance and expertise as we will now have coverage at a lower premium for 2021. Most importantly some peace of mind. Thank you Gordon.

“Working with Gordon has been an AMAZING experience. He is so knowledgable and easy to work with always looking out for my best interests. Just moving to WA from CA, I was totally lost when it came to finding a good plan and he gave me really great options and advice. He is easy to get ahold of and is always very responsive. I highly recommend him to everyone if you need help finding health insurance!!! I can't say enough good things about him and his business.

“I can't say enough about Gordon. He is professional, knowledgeable and was able to get me a great plan and save me money. He knows so much about all the providers and what he doesn't know he will research quickly. He's reliable, responsible, professional and knows his stuff. I'd be thrilled to recommend him to anyone.

Ed B.
South Beach, San Francisco, CA
“Gordon helped our small business through the process of obtaining health insurance for the first time. We couldn't be happier with the service we received. He was incredibly responsive and helped us get the application submitted and approved very quickly. He is a great communicator and goes beyond any similar broker I have worked with in terms of the depth of his explanations and his willingness to be available to our employees for any insurance related questions. We strongly recommend Essential Benefits!!
Elizabeth P.
Seattle, WA
“I started working with Gordon to get personal insurance because my employers insurance wouldn't cover a surgery that I needed. When we hit a road block in the individual market, Gordon offered to consult with my boss and explore other opportunities that were available. It was a win win for everyone I was able to get my surgery covered and my boss was so impressed that he hired Gordon as our new insurance broker! The level of service that Gordon has provided to me and my office has been utterly incredible.
Kristen O.
Seattle, WA
“HIGHLY recommend!! I was completely lost without Gordon and he was able to help me understand my options and held my hand (figuratively) as we signed me up for plans. His responses were always timely, professional, and clear. If you're a small business owner and looking for help with the insurance process, Gordon is the best.

“Gordon was a total life saver!! I gave him all the information that he needed(doctors that I wanted to stay with how often I go to the doctor etc.) He research it all and narrowed it down for me and helped me choose the best plan for myself. I can not say enough great things about him. Picking an insurance plan is so stressful but it absolutely does not have to be if you work with Gordon, I promise he will make your life so much easier!
