27 November 2019 - AXA
Insurance today announced the launch of AXA Super
CritiCare, a critical
illness plan designed to provide all-rounded protection including multiple
payouts for early, intermediate and advanced stage critical illnesses up to a
total of 600% of the coverage amount, as well as support for customers to take
control of their health and well-being with a diabetes management programme,
which is the only such offering provided by an insurer.
"We are privileged
to live in an age where thanks to medical advancements, it is possible to
recover from critical illnesses. But many of us are also aware that the
possibility of recurring critical illness or being diagnosed with more than one
critical illness is very real," said Sean Goh, Managing Director, Life, AXA
"With AXA Super
CritiCare, customers can make claims for more than one type of critical illness
regardless of the stage of the condition. We want our customers to be able to
focus on recovery, without having to worry about the financial impact of a
critical illness when it strikes."
AXA Super CritiCare
is the first plan in the market to offer coverage across all stages of
re-diagnosed cancer or recurrent heart attack or stroke. Customers will receive
up to 100% of the coverage amount for each claim, not only at the advanced
stage of a relapse which is typical of many critical illness plans, but also
upon the early and intermediate stage of a relapse.
On top of financial
protection, the plan also aims to help customers who are diagnosed with
diabetes with critical illness prevention through a complimentary Diabetes Care
Programme. Poor control of diabetes can lead to serious complications and the
disease is often associated with other conditions, like high blood pressure and
high cholesterol, that increase the likelihood of critical illnesses.
diabetes is a serious and growing health concern, with the number of diabetics
in Singapore expected to more than double from 440,000 in 2014
to one million by 2050,
we want to contribute to the collective fight against this disease by
advocating better diabetes management with our programme. With a well-controlled
diabetes condition, we can help our customers reduce their risk of developing
health complications that may lead to serious critical illnesses that can
endanger their lives. This is in line with our commitment to be a long-term
partner to our customers, by empowering them to take control of their health so
they can live a better life," added Goh.
The Diabetes Care
Programme, worth S$2,500 a year, provides support in controlling the condition
through a 12-month personalised wellness programme to manage diabetes
conditions upon diagnosis of diabetes, and can be renewed yearly if one's
condition persists. It comprises six components: personalised consultations,
dietary counselling with individualised nutritional plans, a fitness programme,
eye screening, foot screening and annual lab tests.
According to the AXA
Better Life 2019 study, three in five Singaporeans are not financially prepared
for critical illness in the family,
with one in two attributing it to a lack of disposable income to save. AXA seeks
to address this concern with AXA Super CritiCare, which is one of the most
affordable plans in the market. It can be purchased as a standalone plan or a
rider attached to selected plans with premiums starting from as low as S$3a
To eliminate possible
disruptions to their critical illness coverage, customers can also choose to
enhance their AXA Super CritiCare plan with optional riders to waive future
premiums if they or their loved ones face unfortunate events such as a
diagnosis of early to advanced stage critical illnesses, or involuntary loss of
Building on its partnership
