Serious illness can mean serious costs. Access to voluntary critical illness insurance coverage, offered through Sandia Extras, provides a cash benefit for certain illnesses, such as cancer, heart attack, and stroke.
How It Works
Critical illness insurance can provide you with additional financial protection if you experience a serious health condition, including:
Major organ transplant
These types of illness can take a huge toll on you and your family members, so this is a cash benefit paid directly to you. You can use it in any way; for example, to help pay for your treatment or home healthcare, your mortgage or rent, or your transportation to visits with your healthcare providers.
This program is available to all regular employees, and you can cover your eligible dependents.
You pay for the cost of this coverage through payroll deductions.
Sandia works with Corestream to provide this benefit.
You can enroll as a new hire and during each year’s open enrollment period.
Go to the Corestream website to get more information about critical illness insurance and our additional Sandia Extras voluntary benefits programs. You will need to register to get all the details, so have your employee ID handy.
Critical illness is just one of Sandia’s voluntary benefits programs offered through Sandia Extras. Taking advantage of Sandia Extras can save you time – by shopping for a variety of insurance benefits in one spot – and save you money – because the programs are offered at discounted group rates to Sandia employees.
