What is “communicable diseases requiring quarantine by law”?
Communicable diseases requiring quarantine by law refers to infectious diseases or transmissible diseases that are declared as required quarantine under the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988, such as COVID-19 mentioned under the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases (Amendment of First Schedule) Order 2020.
What is the impact to my premium and charges If I accept the revision to the exclusion clause?
There is no change to your current premium and charges when you accept the revision to the exclusion clause. However, as we continue to regularly review our premiums and charges against healthcare costs to ensure you are always adequately protected, future premiums and insurance charges review will take into account Pandemic Protection. This is to ensure fair treatment to all policyholders of the medical plan. You will be notified accordingly if there is a need for revisions in the future.
What is the difference between premium and insurance charges?
Premium is the amount that you pay to Prudential in return for the insurance coverage provided. For an investment-linked insurance policy, part or all of the premiums paid are used to purchase units in the investment-linked fund(s) while the remaining is used to pay upfront charges for insurance expenses and direct distribution costs. Insurance charges are deducted monthly from the value of your investment-linked funds to pay for your insurance coverage. Generally, insurance charges will increase as you grow older.
What happens if I do not respond before the end date mentioned in the letter? Will I be able to accept the revision in the future?
This is a limited period option. If you do not respond to us before the end date, your medical plan will remain as per current version and continue to exclude the coverage for “communicable diseases requiring quarantine by law”. Any submission after the end date will not be accepted.
Can I retract my acceptance at a later time after I respond with my acceptance?
No. The revision shall apply to the medical plan once we receive your acceptance response.
What are the medical plans that are available for the revision to the exclusion clause?
This revision to the exclusion clause is offered to existing policyholders with PRUHealth, PRUMedic Essential, PRUFlexi Med, PRUValue Med, PRUMedic Overseas or PRUMillion Med medical plan
