Double Major Medical Benefit for common urban diseases

Double Major Medical Benefit for common urban diseases

FTLife has responded to the fact that people succumbing to urban killer diseases are getting younger – so if the insured is diagnosed with cancer, a heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, or needs a major organ/bone marrow transplant or surgery related to diabetes-complications, the Major Medical Benefit will double the maximum benefit normally payable and the reimbursement percentage will be raised from 80% to 100%.


Moreover, benefit will extend to cover the specific out-patient treatments, include chemotherapy, radiotherapy, target therapy, hormonal therapy, immunotherapy, proton therapy, haemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis and the expense of consultancy, as well as any diagnostic imaging or drugs relating to specific outpatient treatment will also be covered under the plan, so the insured can receive treatment that maximizes likelihood of recovery.

Upfront no-claim discount for successful applications

Upfront no-claim discount for successful applications

No-claim discount rewards policyowners for leading healthy lifestyles. Unlike similar plans on the market, “MediCare” provides an annual 16% premium discount immediately following successful application until such time as the first claim is made. Then an 8% discount is provided in the policy year following a claim, while a 0% discount applies to ensuing years. If no claim is made for three consecutive policy years, the rate of no-claim discount will revert to 16%.

The following items will NOT affect no-claim discount:

  • Outpatient surgery (Surgery performed on an outpatient basis entitles the policyowner to outpatient surgery cash3)
  • Admission to public wards in HKSAR Government hospitals
  • Emergency Out-patient Treatment (Accident) benefit

Benefit4 to facilitate care of home issues during hospitalization

Benefit4 to facilitate care of home issues during hospitalization

For each hospitalisation and period of pre/post-confinement, a Hospitalization Home Care Benefit will be provided to give the insured peace of mind while undergoing medical treatment. Such issues could include home help by a temporary domestic helper and pet care to address the insured’s everyday domestic needs.
