We will only make one partial payment per person under any specified illness cover plan. The partial payment on these illnesses is totally separate from your main specified illness cover benefit. That means it does not generally affect the amount you could receive if you need to make a specified illness claim for one of the 44 conditions we cover on a full payment basis at a later date.
