Friends Provident has added mastectomy cover to critical illness and life with critical illness policies. In the event of a total mastectomy to treat a carcinoma in situ of the breast, it will pay out 20% of the sum assured or £15,000 whichever is less. This additional cover will not reduce original sum assured in the event of a further claim.
Five other conditions have been reworded to widen their cover:
- Heart attack
- Benign brain tumour
- Coronary artery by-pass grafts
- Heart valve replacement or repair
