About critical illness cover
Why do you need critical illness insurance cover?

Why do you need critical illness insurance cover?

Although critical illness cover might feel very similar to life insurance, it’s actually quite different. Critical illness cover pays you a lump sum of money if you have a designated disease or condition that’s covered in your policy. Essentially, it helps you worry less about your finances while you recuperate and get the treatment you need.
For example, the 5-year relative survival rates of stage 1 colorectal cancer is 95.7% *.
The money we pay out can be used for the treatment you need – and do remember that ongoing medical advancements has seen increment in survival rates.

What is MyCover term critical illness insurance plan?

What is MyCover term critical illness insurance plan?

We designed this particular plan as we wanted to offer the best possible coverage. We refer to cancer, heart attack and stroke as ‘the big 3 diseases’ as these three alone made up 90%2 of our critical illness claims in 2020.
These three alone made up 90%2 of our critical illness claims in 2020.
So we created a plan that pays a cash lump sum equivalent to 100% of the current sum insured in the event you’re diagnosed with big 3 diseases.
Cover carcinoma-in-situ
While some term critical illness plans on the market may not cover carcinoma-in-situ, FWD’s MyCover does. The plan covers several cases of carcinoma-in-situ including breast, lung, and cervix uteri. Plus it covers early-stage malignancy of specific organs – including prostate, thyroid and non-melanoma skin cancer. In case any of these happen, we’ll pay 35% of the initial sum insured (up to HK$400,000).
