International private medical insurer InterGlobal has added UltraCare Elite, which has enhanced benefits for cancer care. The plan, top of the insurer's UltraCare range, includes payment for cancer treatment up to the member's annual benefit limit. The new plan also has increased limits for complementary medicine, cover for annual dental checkups and psychotherapy treatment.
Interlobular has rewritten all documentation to plain English, making plans clearer to customers. This includes a clear description of the cancer care benefits available to members of all of InterGlobal's plans.
Paul Weigall of InterGlobal says, "Many international private medical plans impose lifetime benefit limits for the treatment of chronic or terminal cancer conditions. These limits can sometimes be reached in the treatment of chronic cancer conditions, leaving members exposed to medical bills when they could least cope with them. The Elite plan now strips away all terminal and chronic benefit lifetime limits and provides cover for treatment in full up to the annual benefit limit."
