What is Gibraltar BSN GoXtra Care?
The GoXtra Care by Gibraltar BSN is a regular premium non-participating term medical plan that offers comprehensive coverage for over 150 critical illness conditions upon diagnosis. From Early, Intermediate and Advanced Stages, get as much financial support as needed with GoXtra Care as you take your time to recover.
GoXtra Care comes with a minimum sum assured of RM40,000 up to a maximum of RM2 million and the coverage term is up to 80 years old—which is quite the bargain considering this is a comprehensive critical care plan.
However, while it is always better to opt for the highest sum assured amount, it is usually not the case if you ended up wasting a lot of money on the premium payable for coverage that you don’t actually need. Therefore, you should think through how much sum assured you need by taking into account your overall health condition, lifestyle, budget as well as needs and preferences.
