AXA Insurance has launched AXA Super CritiCare, a critical illness plan designed to provide all-rounded protection including multiple payouts for early, intermediate and advanced stage critical illnesses up to a total of 600% of the coverage amount, as well as support for customers to take control of their health and well-being with a diabetes management programme, "which is the only such offering provided by an insurer", said the company.
According to the company statement, AXA Super CritiCare is the first plan in the market to offer coverage across all stages of re-diagnosed cancer or recurrent heart attack or stroke. Customers will receive up to 100% of the coverage amount for each claim, not only at the advanced stage of a relapse which is typical of many critical illness plans, but also upon the early and intermediate stage of a relapse.
On top of financial protection, the plan also aims to help customers who are diagnosed with diabetes with critical illness prevention through a complimentary Diabetes Care Programme. Poor control of diabetes can lead to serious complications and the disease is often associated with other conditions, like high blood pressure and high cholesterol, that increase the likelihood of critical illnesses.
Sean Goh, Managing Director, Life, AXA Insurance Singapore, said: ““Recognising that diabetes is a serious and growing health concern, with the number of diabetics in Singapore expected to more than double from 440,000 in 2014 to one million by 2050, we want to contribute to the collective fight against this disease by advocating better diabetes management with our programme. With a well-controlled diabetes condition, we can help our customers reduce their risk of developing health complications that may lead to serious critical illnesses that can endanger their lives. This is in line with our commitment to be a long-term partner to our customers, by empowering them to take control of their health so they can live a better life.”
The Diabetes Care Programme, worth S$2,500 a year, provides support in controlling the condition through a 12-month personalised wellness programme to manage diabetes conditions upon diagnosis of diabetes, and can be renewed yearly if one’s condition persists. It comprises six components: personalised consultations, dietary counselling with individualised nutritional plans, a fitness programme, eye screening, foot screening and annual lab tests.
Building on its partnership with the Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) and commitment to support critical illness awareness and prevention, AXA will be donating $10 to SCS for every AXA Super CritiCare policy sold. This is an extension of its on-going donation of $10 for every AXA CritiCare for Her and Him policy sold.
