Premium is by far the cheapest in Singapore at only $12.10 per month.
Why bother with CI coverage when I already have my existing health insurance/life insurance?
The coverage provided for CI is different from health and life insurance. For a health insurance, it only covers your hospital expenses. While that may seem sufficient as you need not fork out for your treatment/surgery procedure, many of us tend to forget that with such illnesses, it could force us to stay home and recuperate. Resulting in losing a source of income. This is where CI coverage comes in as they offer a one-time lump-sum payout to cover upon diagnosis of the critical illness.
Life insurance, on the other hand, offers a lump-sum payout only when you pass on and this sum is for your dependant. In a nutshell, a life insurance is meant for your dependants while a CI plan is meant to cover the loss of your income and treatment fees.
Due to medical advances, the chances of recovering from a critical illness is much higher now than before. Therefore, it is wise to consider investing in an early critical plan to prepare yourself for any unfortunate event. With the Living Care Plus rider, it helps give you a peace of mind at an affordable price.
