No. If you submit a large claim as an individual, you will not suffer any large rating increase as a result of your claim.  The plans are portfolio rated.

You may renew your policy for life.  New applicants should be aged 65 or under.

How are my premiums calculated?

Mega International Health Care offers published premiums based on gender and age.  The plan also offers several cover modules, each with their own unique features, meaning you can choose the cover you have based on the budget you need.  Choose your options to create your own plan and then look up the rate according to your gender and age.

Will the plan cover me when I am outside of my usual country of residence?

Yes. Mega International Health Care offers out of area cover either on a fully worldwide basis or worldwide excluding U.S.A.. You will be covered up to the limits of your policy in your area of cover.  Also, all policies come with full evacuation and repatriation cover, meaning that you will be evacuated and have transport costs covered if you fall ill or have an accident in a place where medical services are not acceptable.

Are pre-existing conditions covered?

Yes, some pre-existing conditions may by covered and may require a premium loading or a cap on benefits.  We believe this is a more straightforward and honest approach than offering a pre-existing "waiting period / moratorium" for which the majority of policyholders never qualify.
