Hospitalisation Insurance (H&S)

AXA Shield

Hi anon, The key function of the shield plan is to cover your hospital bills and associated pre and post outpatient costs. With that in mind, all shield plans are largely the same. But once you get into the finer details, they can differ by quite a bit. Now, it won't make a lot of sense to detail everything here, but you can speak with your advisor who should be able to take you through the unique selling points of each plan, and I'd recommend you to do just that.

Hi Anon, I think for shield plans, the insurer that issued the plan has the right to change the terms and conditions. Also just to highlight, the shield plan is one of the highest loss making product for insurers so I am not surprised that they are making changes to the policy terms. There might even be changes to the premiums as well due to this loss. Of course, you might also want to look at whether you do need to have the highest possible coverage as some of us might just go to a restructed (government) hospital when we seek medical treatment.

AXA Shield

Hi Anon, Yes, this has been happening for premiums on shield plans due to claims and also almost every insurer has only experience losses due to claims done by the insured. Of course we will feel the pinch, because it would feel like we are paying more for something that we did not use or claim from. However if we are under the old policy and the old rider where we are entitled to 100% claims, I do honestly think we should keep that policy, as insurance is actually more protective, and in regards to medical bills, we definitely want to have more than sufficient protection for ourselves individually

Yes, there may be exclusions on a new application. You can get your advisor to apply for a preliminary underwriting, but it would almost always be best to keep to what you currently have. Insurers take a lot less risk on medical policy and would more often than not, be trigger happy with exclusions.

Hi, I can help you out, maybe can let me know what shield plan you are on at the moment and the rider? To answer your question: AXA Shield’s boasts one of the cheapest premiums compared to other insurers, even when you compare premiums for older age groups (more on this later). In terms of other benefits, AXA’s letter of guarantee is one of the best across the board, the amounts are generous and efficient. The non-panel co-payment is pretty much similar to other insurers. The basis of Co-payment is paying for what you need when you need it, rather than pre-paying for it. This is evident when other insurers have high priced premiums for older age groups and by then it’ll be very hard to switch out. If you are at a crossroads, do speak to an independent financial adviser like myself, who can compare plans from multiple insurers.
