Why do I need AXA eCritical Early Care?
The medical costs in treating critical illnesses can outstrip our finances especially when we’re not expecting and prepared for it. And even when you already have medical insurance in your hands, more often than not, the policy does not offer coverage for any type of critical illness.
This is where a critical illness insurance policy such as AXA eCritical Early Care comes in handy. Not only is this policy readily available online, you also don’t need to undergo a medical check-up before applying.
How does this critical illness policy work?
AXA eCritical Early Care is a non-participating yearly renewable standalone critical illness plan that provides financial coverage should you be diagnosed with any of the 50 conditions of Early and Advanced stages critical illnesses, up to the age of 80.
With the basic sum insured between RM50,000 to RM250,000, AXA AFFIN Life Insurance will pay you 50% of the basic sum insured in the case where you’ve been diagnosed with an Early Stage critical illness.
Whereas upon Advanced Stage critical illness diagnosis, you’ll get a lump sum 100% of the basic sum insured, less any approved claims under Early Stage. And you’re also only allowed to make one (1) claim for each critical illness stage.
This plan will be terminated once 100% of the basic sum insured is fully paid.
The maximum aggregate amount payable on critical illness benefit under this plan is subject to RM2,000,000 per life.
