Many Singaporeans remain under-protected against CI, with an average CI protection gap of 74%. Coupled with rising medical costs, there is a growing need for accessible and robust insurance solutions to safeguard individuals from the financial burden associated with CI. The product’s first-in-market feature, Continuous Care Benefit, aims to address this gap by providing monthly cash payouts of up to 200%1 of the original sum insured2 in addition to a 100% lump sum payout upon a severe stage CI claim to help Singaporeans amid challenging times.

“Etiqa Insurance Singapore’s Essential critical secure plan reinforces our commitment to support Singaporeans through life’s challenges while addressing evolving healthcare and protection needs,” said Raymond Ong, CEO of Etiqa Insurance Singapore. “The addition of Continuous Care Benefit aims to alleviate the financial strain of customers during challenging times by providing continuous financial support, going beyond the conventional lump sum payout upon diagnosis.”

In line with Singapore’s focus to make mental health and well-being a key priority, Essential critical secure also encompasses financial support for mental health. Coverage is provided for psychiatrist consultations (up to 8 claims) upon the diagnosis of Mild Depression or Generalised Anxiety Disorder after the first policy year, and an accelerated lump sum benefit of 20% of the sum insured3 will be paid out upon the diagnosis of any 1 of the 5 covered severe mental health conditions.
