Precision Medicine

Cancer insurance coverage for leading-edge cancer treatment tailored to your recovery needs.



Discover the Best Road to Recovery for You

Fantastic news. Besides chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery, Precision Medicine is now available on our list of covered cancer treatments!

While Precision Treatment is new, it shows promising signs of improved outcomes thanks to cancer Genomic Testing and targeted therapy. Having this additional option in your arsenal will give you more control and confidence to take that first step on your road to recovery.

How Does Precision Medicine Work?

A cancer patient’s tumour is first tested for how it responds to various treatments. Since people’s bodies react differently, doctors then select the best-matched treatment to target the genes that cause cancer cells to survive and grow.

What is precision medicine?

Also known as personalised or genomic medicine, precision medicine considers individual patients’ genetic, environmental, and lifestyle variations. As a result, it enables specific treatment and choices to be made, thereby being more effective.

Is precision medicine effective?

Precision medicine is promising, with certain approved medications showing a response rate of up to 95%. However, some newer medications are still in research stages. Nonetheless, it is still a viable treatment option for oncology patients.
