HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 17 September 2021 – Blue Cross (Asia Pacific) Insurance Co., Ltd. (“Blue Cross”) announced the launch of Blue Cross Dynasty VHIS Plan (the “Plan”), a comprehensive and highly flexible choice for customers who are looking for high-end medical protection. The Plan offers a lifetime benefit limit up to HK$48,000,000, full cover for 17 key benefit items and 8 deductible plan options, enabling customers to design their own plan based on their needs and budget. The Plan specially provides care for patients with chronic illnesses, with market-first coverage for Sleep Apnea Treatment amongst VHIS plans. If applying with family members, customers can enjoy triple offer with first-year premium discount as low as 50%1, approximately HK$12/ day2.
Blue Cross Dynasty VHIS Plan is a comprehensive and highly flexible choice for customers who are looking for high-end medical protection. At the same time, Blue Cross rolled out a promotion campaign with the theme “Just Right” in which artist Ava Liu shared how Blue Cross medical insurance can help and support, providing everyone a safety net in times of need.
Blue Cross Dynasty VHIS Plan is certified by the Food and Health Bureau as a voluntary health insurance scheme (VHIS) flexi plan, suitable for insured aged between 12 days and 80 years old. This Plan fully covers major medical expenses from diagnosis, surgery to recovery, including Room and Board, Surgeon’s, Anesthetist’s and Specialist’s Fees, Pre- and Post-confinement/ Day Case Procedure Outpatient Care, Post-confinement Home Nursing, Prescribed Non-surgical Cancer Treatments and Outpatient Kidney Dialysis, etc. The Plan also covers Rehabilitation Treatment, Stroke Rehabilitation Treatment and Sleep Apnea Treatment (a market-first cover among VHIS plans).
The Plan is highly flexible that offers two plan levels, Worldwide and Asia & Australia-New Zealand, and four annual deductible options (HK$0, HK$20,000, HK$40,000 or HK$80,000), making a total of 8 deductible plan options for selection. No matter a customer has been covered by company’s group medical insurance, Blue Cross Dynasty VHIS Plan is a smart choice for enhanced medical protection. Customers can select deductible based on their needs and budget, to save premium up to 68%3 while enjoying all-round cover. In the event of a claim, if the claimed amount payable by group medical insurance is unable to fully reimburse the medical expenses, Blue Cross Dynasty VHIS Plan can provide additional coverage and reduce the chance of customer paying the shortfall at his/her own expenses.
Mr. Patrick Wan, Managing Director of Blue Cross, said “Blue Cross is committed to providing customers with quality products and services that meet their needs. Since the launch of CareForYou VHIS Plans which have been well-received by our customers, we are pleased to launch Blue Cross Dynastic VHIS Plan to further enrich our product portfolio and reach a wider group of customers so as to address the market demand for high-end medical insurance products.
