For everyday medical expenses. The Day-to-day Benefit covers routine medical costs like doctors' visits and prescribed medication.
What does it cover?
This benefit pays for day-to-day medical expenses, such as out-of-hospital doctors' visits, eye care, dentistry, and prescribed medication.
For example, when you get the flu and go to your General Practitioner (GP), the doctor is paid using your Day-to-day Benefits. The same applies when you go to your dentist and optician. This benefit also pays for prescribed medication and over-the-counter medication, x-rays, and so much more.
Why do I need it?
Even if you and your family are relatively healthy, consider what your out-of-pocket medical expenses might be in a year in which each member of the family gets secondary infections after the flu, one of you develops complications such as a lung infection and requires x-rays and visits to a specialist. Paying for these medical expenses out of your own pocket can be quite expensive.
