FRANK.NET offers Serious Illness Cover to ensure that if you suffer from a stroke, heart attack or cancer, or undergo open heart surgery, you'll receive a cash lump sum of between R100 000 and R2 million depending on the level of cover you choose and your personal details (your risk profile).
This money can be used in any way that you see fit, including taking your family on holiday while you recuperate and paying for additional medical bills that aren't covered by your medical aid.
Sickness is an unavoidable part of life, but some illnesses are serious and can leave you unable to work for weeks or even months. During this time, bills and expenses don't stop. Car insurance, rent, water, electricity, food and other sundry expenses still need to be paid, even though you may not be earning your usual income.
Furthermore, there are also many other expenses relating to your serious illness that you may need to pay. These may include travelling to see a specialist or employing a nurse for 24-hour care.
It's wise to invest in Serious Illness Cover from FRANK.NET to protect yourself – and by extension, your loved ones – financially should you fall seriously ill.
Even if you're able to pay your usual bills during your recovery period, your Serious Illness Cover payout can be used to make you more comfortable during this time by removing the stress caused by financial obligations.

FRANK.NET will pay you a predetermined lump sum if you're diagnosed with any of the following serious illnesses by a registered doctor:
Heart attack – This entails the death of a portion of the heart muscle as a result of inadequate blood supply.
