Called Complete Cancer Care, the new product is designed to offer continuous care and financial support to those diagnosed with cancer.
Swiss Re said that the product will offer a “guaranteed” post-cancer coverage alternative for customers without requiring a prerequisite health assessment, even after a cancer diagnosis.
In addition to standard options, which mostly centre around lump sum payments after diagnosis, the solution focuses on providing support for cancer patients who are receiving treatment with monthly payouts and a premium waiver benefit.
Furthermore, Complete Cancer Care provides a hospice care benefit to assist patients receiving palliative care.
The product supports an entry age of up to 74 years old, with coverage to a maximum age of 84 years old to cater to Singapore’s ageing population.
