Scottish Provident has extended its critical illness cover.

Three new conditions have been added to the list of critical illnesses covered: primary pulmonary hypertension – of specified severity; pulmonary artery graft surgery – with surgery to divide the breastbone; and structural heart surgery – with surgery to divide the breastbone.

The definitions apply across both Self Assurance term and Pegasus whole of life policies.

In addition the life and pensions provider has extended its definition for HIV to include countries outside the EU.

The firm has also removed a number of exclusions from its Pegasus contracts to bring the brand in line with its Self Assurance range.

The exclusions removed are for claims arising from: criminal acts; drug abuse; flying/aviation; or hazardous sports and pastimes.

Finally Scottish Provident has streamlined its application process, speeding it up and significantly reducing the size of Plan Documents packs handed out to customers.
