"MetLife Hong Kong
has always kept a close eye on health trends and customer needs. In view of the
increasing risk of critical illnesses striking at a younger age, we have designed
MetLife Health Selection Critical Care Plan as an innovative, value-for-money
solution tailored to the needs of the younger generation and the mass market,"
said Mr. Vincent Chan, Head of Product of MetLife Hong Kong.
"Traditional critical illness insurance products
typically support medical treatment by providing a lump sum payment in a set
amount for one-off financial support. But as new treatments and medications
emerge, the average coverage that most people currently have under existing
critical illness policies may well be inadequate. That's why we have gone
beyond the typical critical illness insurance in developing this specific critical
illness reimbursement product. We have crafted this product to provide a high
level of coverage at a very affordable premium, creating greater value for
customers. The plan offers comprehensive reimbursement for both traditional and
new critical illness treatment methods (including non-Hong Kong registered
medication for cancer treatment), and covers recurrence, metastasis and
persistence of cancer. In this manner, we are fully supporting customers along
the pathway of life."
