SingSaver Partners FWD for dedicated COVID-19 Coverage

SingSaver has partnered FWD earlier this month to launch the FWD Personal Accident and Infectious Disease Coverage insurance policy. This covers you for infectious diseases including COVID-19, dengue, Zika virus and others and is bundled with a personal accident policy. Purchase this exclusively on SingSaver at S$98 per annum with discounts for couples and families. The Couples Cover is priced at S$185.20 and the Family Cover for up to 2 adults and 2 children is priced at S$252.

FWD Personal Accident and Infectious Disease Coverage offers standard enhanced benefits that cover worldwide medical expenses in hospitals and clinics, hospital income and medical evacuation in the event that the policyholder contracts an infectious disease without the need to purchase expensive add-ons. It also offers a limit of S$50,000 payout each for COVID-19 and infectious diseases related death, disability or guardian angel benefit, and the reimbursement of holistic care necessities such as physiotherapy expenses, traditional Chinese medicine and home modifications. The guardian angel benefit pays your surviving child or children 100% of the accidental death benefit when both parents die or get permanently disabled from the same accident.
