You take a lot after your family, whether it’s your curly hair, dimple on the right cheek, or athletic ability. But that’s not all – diseases also run in families. If you know you’re prone to a specific medical condition, we’ve developed a special plan that makes sure you get the right care the moment you need it. We’ll be at your side with:

  • Lump sum payment: Up to US $500,000 paid immediately upon diagnosis of any covered 32 critical illnesses
  • Worldwide coverage: Giving you the assistance you need even if you move to another country
  • Telemedicine and e-consultancy through World Care International: Access to free expert care from world-renowned medical centers in the US specializing in your condition
  • Four plans to choose from: Cancer only, Coronary only, Cancer and Coronary, and Full Coverage
