I assume that you had bought your ISP Rider after the news was announced.
As for your question, this is highly dependent on which Insurer your ISP is with. For some Insurers, the rider actually increases the duration of the pre and post hospitalisation.
On top of which, if you are referring to private hospitals, a serious illness such as Stroke can easily bring up the bill to 100k or 200k for just 3 - 4 weeks stay in the hospital. In such scenarios, riders typically have an annual cap of S$3k, meaning your maximum outlay is S$3k per year instead of paying S$10k for a $200k bill.
For specific advice regarding the rider, I would suggest that you have a discussion with your financial planner. Alternatively, you may always reach out to me via my website: https://brandanchen.manulife.sg/
