Great Eastern MediCare 100: Protected up to hundred years old

Great Eastern Life Malaysia launched a new product early this year – MediCare 100. Most health plans in the market only cover the life assured up to age 70. Medicare 100 is designed to meet your changing health needs and protects you up to age 100. What’s more, your coverage will increase by 10% each year until a maximum of 200%*. This will help cushion the effects of inflation on the value of the plan.

      Hi Sia,

      It depends on what is the purpose of the insurance. The basic need is medical and savings for education.
      Investment-linked plan can suit most of the needs.

    i want to purchase medical insurance (hospitalization and surgical) and an agent recommended Great Medicare 2. There are how many types of medical insurance by Great Eastern ? What are the major differences between them?

    For Great Medicare 2, the Room and Board are rm150, 200, 300 & 400. If currently, rm150 is the cheapest R & B available at private hospitals, what happen if in 10 years time, the same R & B has become rm250 due to inflation and etc. The insurance company still pay only rm150 for R & B as per policy ?

    How the 20% co-insurance if upgrade R & B works? How to determine if there is an upgrade if in time to come, the cost of R & B will definitely be much higher than the current plan that i purchased.

    Is it true that the premium for Great Medicare 2 is fixed throughout the years if ILP ? OR the insurance company has the rights to request policy holders to pay higher premium in later years due to higher medical cost. IS the insurance company relying on the investment returns to off-set the higher medical cost? Meaning to say that if investment returns are lower than projected, one will need to top-up the premium?
    The premiums in the early years are usually higher compared to non-ILP medical insurance (stand alone medical insurance) to ‘smooth’ out the premium over the whole policy period ? (for stand alone medical insurance, premium will increase over the years).

    I am male, aged 31. my budget is about rm3K per year. I want to purchase medical insurance + life + CI + PA. What is your recommendation? Your comments are highly appreciated.
