FWD launches ‘Cancer Fighter’
FWD Life Insurance has launched “Cancer Fighter”, a new insurance product that covers all stages of cancer from first diagnosis onwards.
The package provides benefits at early diagnosis to cover medical treatments, including ongoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy recovery benefits, said chief marketing officer Aman Kapoor.
The “Cancer Fighter” gives a significant lump sum (50 per cent of sum assured) when the cancer is detected early to help pay for the best medical treatments at the early stage to beat the disease.
In cases where cancer is detected at a later stage, full benefit (100 per cent of sum assured) will be given to the customer. Moreover, an additional 40 per cent of sum assured will be provided for ongoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments to help with full recovery.
The “Cancer Fighter” plan can be bought with a main life-insurance policy from FWD, is available for customers aged 16-65 years, and can be renewed up to age 84 years.
