In this article the author discusses the latest move of the Association of British Insurers (ABI) revising its critical-illness (CI) insurance policy in 2009. He states that it made sense that the protection committee of the ABI reevaluated the CI by applying it with good criteria for claims. He cites that CI was a successful product because of the simplicity of its proposition.
