Claims specialists talking about the Voluntary Health Insurance Scheme (“VHIS”)
It is well-known that VHIS covers a wide issue age range and allows for tax deduction. However, from the claims perspective, how would claims specialists see this new plan and what are the exclusive advantages?
Our experienced claims specialists are always trying their best to aid our clients whenever our clients have unexpected needs. “It has been discouraging to be unable to help individuals when they are undergoing non-surgical cancer treatments (chemotherapy and targeted therapy) or psychiatric inpatient treatments that might not get covered due to the restrictions under traditional medical plans across the market,” said our specialist. However, these treatments are now generally under coverage when it comes to VHIS. We are glad to roll out our new VHIS Flexi Plan, WeHealth Plus, offering a no claim discount to healthy clients and cardiac rehabilitation treatment benefits to those in need. We have been receiving enquiries and many were from younger people who want to buy insurance for their parents - learn more about the WeHealth Plus now.

We want you to get the protection you deserve
Putting clients at the centre of what we do, our claims specialists work hard on handling every single claims case efficiently and understand that human touch is extremely important when it comes to special circumstances. We look to offload the administrative burden in the claims process from our clients and their family and let them focus on things that matter.
There was once an aged client, insured for years with us who passed away due to an accident. Taking a wide range of factors and the urgency of the situation into account, we decided to exercise discretion for financial support and settled the payment much earlier than it should have been. Another client of ours had to submit a large number of documents to support her claim due to her special situation while both the insured and the beneficiary of the policy had passed away. We know that it was an extremely difficult time for her, and it was hard to obtain all the required documents on her own – so our specialists acted immediately to allay her concerns about the uncommon circumstance and kept track of the status with her financial advisor while collecting necessary reports from the hospitals directly. Being able to help our clients and settle the case could not have been more rewarding.
