A team member must elect coverage for dependents to elect coverage as well.

Below is an example of how the Critical Illness Plan works.

Donna’s life is turned upside down when she suffered a heart attack which was followed by a stroke only a month later. Not only did she miss work, but so did her husband to help her during her recovery. Their income took a hit and bills piled up. Donna had enrolled in Voya’s Critical Illness plan with a $30,000 Benefit Amount per diagnosis. She received a total benefit payment of $60,000 in her family’s greatest time of need.

Team members can use the benefit shown to the right, to meet any out-of-pocket expenses and extra bills that can occur. Benefits are paid directly to you, regardless of the actual cost of treatment. ECU Health team members will receive a 50% additional benefit if treatment is sought at a ECU Health Facility.
