Each eligible treatment is covered 100%, with maximum amounts and the overall annual maximum for module 1 is USD 35,000.
Module 2: Medicine and Appliances covers all prescribed medicines and rent of appliances, such as wheelchairs or crutches. Hearing aids are also covered 50% with specific maximum limits. Other appliances and medicine are covered 100% up to the overall maximum limit of 2,500 USD.
Module 3: Medical Evacuation and Repatriation covers transportation to the nearest suitable place of treatment if you have a serious illness or injury. For instance, expenses for transportation by aeroplane or helicopter are covered. Expenses for an accompanying person are also covered.
Module 4A and 4B: Dental and Optical gives you the right to reimbursement for dental treatment, glasses and contact lenses. Routine dental treatment is covered 80% with maximum amounts. Special dental treatment is covered 50% up to an annual maximum. Glasses and contact lenses are covered 80% with specific maximum limits. The overall annual maximum for module 4A is USD 5,000 and for module 4B USD 7,500.
Also, you have the option of adding a Deductible to you policy. A Deductible is the contribution you make towards the cost of your treatment each policy year before receiving reimbursement. You can choose to take out your plan with or without a deductible. Taking out a deductible lowers your premium. The deductible does not apply to Medical Evacuation and Repatriation and/or Dental and Optical modules.
