    Hi bought the pru shield for more than 8 yrs ... & had more than 4 agents. The claims process is fast ... but no repeated follow up from Agent unless you contact them .. then u realized either they left or another new agent took over. [Agent Responsiveness]

    [Insurance Coverage] Pretty much everything except only can choose public / government hospitals. I also pay rider to max to avoid paying full fee with extra cash . Better have it just for emergency.
