More than a buzzy health insurance plan, those catered for women offer female-specific coverage for conditions and procedures that women are more inclined to have.

According to the Singapore Cancer Society, over 1,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. If those figures aren’t sobering enough, it’s estimated that over 400 women would die from the disease.

As women, we’re more susceptible to not just breast cancer, but a whole host of diseases, critical illnesses (not to mention childbirth complications) and procedures that perhaps your other insurance plans may not cover. 

Enter women or female-specific insurance plans — designed to (surprise, surprise) specifically address a woman’s health essentials. If you have a family history of cancer, this might be a good plan to purchase for extra protection (you’ll even get free health screenings to boot). Don’t forget, early detection is key!

To get you properly acquainted with this realm of health insurance plans (in case you were wondering, men have those too), here are four female-specific health policies and what they offer.

If you’re looking for a safe place to grow your cash, consider Great Eastern’s GREAT SP Series 10 endowment plan.

The single premium plan offers guaranteed returns of 4% per annum upon maturity, with a short-term commitment of 1 year. By far the highest interest rate it has posted, this means a $100,000 investment will return you S$4,000 in interest when the plan matures, giving you S$104,000. Don’t miss out!

NTUC Income Lady 360 

Type: Term life plan

In terms of coverage, NTUC Income Lady 360 is as extensive as they come, covering specific female illnesses, surgeries and post-diagnosis support benefits. The premium waiver loses out slightly at two years upon a female-related illness diagnosis.

There’s also the female surgeries benefit limit that is only claimable up to 50% of the sum assured to consider. On the plus side, the plan offers complimentary health screenings every two years and a sizeable death benefit ($10,000).

Having the option to claim multiple times and still enjoy continued coverage from the plan is also a nice touch. However, do note that you can only claim up to 100% of the sum assured for female illnesses and support benefit, after which the benefits will not be claimable again.

Prudential's PRULady

Type: Health insurance

Planning on freezing your eggs one day? If you are, you’ll be stoked to know that PRULady covers Oocyte Cryopreservation (aka egg freezing) at 100% of the sum assured but only due to covered female cancers.

However, there’s plenty to appreciate even if that’s not on your to-do list. The plan pretty much does the job of covering the illnesses and conditions that plague us women — we’re talking even more niche procedures such as hormone replacement therapy and outpatient psychiatric.

The premium waivers are also competitive, pegged at a three-year duration if you are found to have a female-related illness.

If you’re at a certain life stage where extra protection is necessary (like carrying a child), you can add on benefits to cover things like hospital care, congenital illnesses and/or pregnancy complications.

AIA Glow of Life

Type: Critical illness plan

For a critical illness plan, AIA Glow of Life adequately covers the absolutely necessary — 100% sum assured coverage of female dreaded illnesses (think cancer, lupus, arthritis) and a range of female health procedures ranging from surgical repair of the urinary incontinence to reconstructive surgery reimbursement caused by burns or accidents (up to 100% of the sum assured claimable!). 

Plus, enjoy complimentary health screenings every two years, a recurring feature across all the women-centric plans on this list. As cancer is not to be taken lightly, you’re also entitled to seek a second opinion if need be.

Perhaps another standout feature is its renewal bonus of an additional 5% of the principal sum assured each time you renew the policy. However, this honeymoon period lasts only for the first five years.
