IHI Bupa has recently improved its International Health and Hospital Plan (IHHP) by expanding the benefit levels for maternity, endoscopic examinations, and the Medicines & Appliances module. The IHHP is already one of the most popular health insurance plans in Asia, specifically in Hong Kong, and Pacific Prime analysts predict that clients will appreciate the improvements to the plan. The changes took effect on September 1st.
For outpatient maternity treatment, the benefit amount for a normal delivery, including any complications, elective caesarean section delivery, and pre/post-natal treatment, has been increased from US $11,000 per delivery to $12,000 per delivery. If a client is medically prescribed a C-section, the plan will cover an extra US $3,300. For delivery/C-section treatment following fertility treatment (not including pre/post-natal treatment), the benefit amount has increased from US $8,000 to $8,800.
For inpatient maternity treatment, the benefit level of a normal delivery has increased from US $6,500 per delivery to $7,150 per delivery. For an emergency C-section, the benefit amount has increased from US $1,150 to $13,200 per delivery. The benefit amount with fertility treatment has increased by US $500.
Cover for endoscopic examinations has also been extended. Endoscopic examinations are now covered under the inpatients plan with the benefits seeing an increase from US $1,000 per exam to “full coverage up to US $2,000,000 per year” with the Hospital Plan. Previously, this benefit was only covered up to US $850 per exam under the outpatient module.
The Medicines and Appliances module on the IHHP has been improved with an increase in cover from US $ 2,500 per year to US $3,000 per year.
Pacific Prime analysts are eager to see how clients will react to the extended cover on the IHHP. By making this upgrade in addition to their usual yearly changes, IHI Bupa is continuing to display its strong commitment to the health and well-being of its clients.
