Product Features

Lower premiums thanks to technology & reduced operational costs

Bowtie Cancer Fighter premium rates are lower than other major insurance providers' cancer insurance plans (4) because we leverage technology to greatly reduce operational costs and pass on savings to our customers.

And every 3 years thereafter, the $1 million benefit is replenished to provide protection against cancer recurrence or diagnosis of other cancers until the benefit reaches policy's lifetime coverage limit.

Three benefit limit options for different levels of protection

Choose from $1/$2/$3 million lifetime benefit options for protection for the entire cancer treatment journey until 5 years after final treatment, recurrence and diagnosis of other cancers.

Why you need cancer protection

No. 1 killer in Hong Kong

Over 30% of deaths in Hong Kong are caused by cancer (5). The top five fatal cancers are lung cancer, colon cancer, liver cancer, breast cancer and pancreatic cancer (5).

1 in 5 give up treatment due to medical costs

Nearly 20% of cancer patients give up treatment because they could no longer afford it. For instance, targeted therapy for lung cancer amounts to as high as $50,000 monthly (7) while full treatment for colon cancer at private hospitals costs $1.3 million (6).

Waitlist for treatment at public hospitals could take up to 2 years

Prolonged waiting time for treatments could lead to poorer health outcomes. The waiting time for treatment at public hospitals ranges from several weeks to over 2 years (8).
