For Individuals

Life & Health

Are you covered for hospitalisation and all other medical needs? The thing about being hospitalised is that in addition to rest and recovery and hospital stay expenses, there is a barrage of other medical needs that you may not have a say over.

With the high cost of healthcare, what’s your plan to protect yourself, if ever the unforeseen were to strike you down?

 

What kind of insurance really helps when you’re hospitalised?

The first thing you need is a comprehensive insurance plan that picks up the expenses for your hospital stay and provides extra coverage for a barrage of pre and post hospitalisation medical needs such as tests, scans, therapy sessions, specialist visits, mobility aids and more.

Illnesses don’t have to be serious to require hospitalisation. Neither do they happen only to adults. Children as young as newborns whose parents have not yet had the time to purchase health insurance for them have also required hospitalisation (especially for respiratory conditions and infections).

Complicating matters further, medical costs are mounting. Having the right coverage amount makes a huge difference. Here are examples^ of three large claims paid by Aviva between 2013 and 2015, to show just how much hospitalisation and medical treatment bills can rack up…

Illness Age Place of Treatment Length of Hospital Stay Amount Incurred Amount Paid by Aviva
Hypertension, Heart failure & Breast Cancer 38 Private 41 days S$487,130.53 S$471,527.30
Pneumonia 46 Private 47 days S$342,787.78 S$333,257.78
Leukemia 53 Private 25 days S$296,811.98 S$296,811.98

 

* Source: Based on Aviva’s medical claims history processed in 2013 to 2015.

^ Amount incurred refers to the total bills which Life Assured may have incurred beyond one policy year. It includes payouts from MediShield, MyShield and MyShield Plus (if applicable), but exclude pre or post hospital treatment claims.
