Feature 1

High-end medical insurance
from just $257/month#

We use technology to cut costs and lower your premium.

# The premium comparison above is based on similar medical insurance plans with the semi-private room level (data source on 31, January 2021), HK$50,000 to HK$100,000 deductibles, for a 30-year-old non-smoker. The plan premiums of other insurance companies are calculated on a yearly basis. Different medical insurance plans have different coverage and benefit limits. For details, please refer to the relevant insurance policy and its terms and conditions. For example, with Bowtie Pink (semi-private room) and the deductible option HK$80,000, the monthly premium for a 30-year-old non-smoker is HK$257.

Feature 2

L

Full coverage for any surgery in any hospital

Annual benefit limit: HK$10,000,000/year
Lifetime benefit limit: HK$50,000,000

Full coverage1without sub-limits for eligible medical expenses such as diagnosis, hospitalisation, surgery, and prescribed non-surgical cancer treatments.
Prescribed non-surgical cancer treatments
 consist of radiotherapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, and hormonal therapy. So, if you have Bowtie Pink, it is not recommended to apply for Bowtie Cancer Fighter for additional coverage.
In other words, no worries!

What’s a deductible? How does it work?

A deductible is the amount you need to pay by yourself in the event of a claim before the insurance company pays for your eligible medical expenses. The insurance company would cover any remaining medical expenses according to the benefit limits in the policy. The deductible of Bowtie Pink is counted per policy year.

Freelancers are different from full-time workers. I have no company welfare and group health insurance. My income is unstable so I have to take care of myself. I bought medical insurance after graduation, but the protection is minimal. As the Bowtie Pink’s premium is reasonable, I buy it for more coverage

FAQ

Can the premium of VHIS be used as a tax deduction?

Since 1 April, 2019, taxpayers (must be Hong Kong residents) who paid the premiums of certified VHIS products for themselves or their specified family members are eligible to claim a tax deduction on qualifying premiums up to a limit of HK$8,000 per insured person each year. If you need any tax advice, please consult your tax advisor or visit the website of the Inland Revenue Department.

What is the difference between the VHIS Flexi and VHIS Standard Plans?

The VHIS Flexi Plan is based on the benefit items of the Standard Plan but offers higher protection with higher limits and additional benefits. The Flexi Plan is also under the regulation of the Food and Health Bureau. You can click here to learn more about the differences between Standard and Flexi Plans.

Bowtie Pink VHIS Plan is a type of Flexi Plan that includes deductible options. It allows applicants to enjoy a higher coverage at a lower premium through choosing a suitable deductible.

Do Flexi Plans offer lifetime guaranteed renewal?

All Bowtie VHIS Flexi Plans offer guaranteed lifetime renewal. As long as you pay your premiums on time, you will not lose your protection.

What is day case procedure cash benefit?

If you undergo day case surgery and the expense is covered by the surgeon’s fee benefit, you will also get day case procedure cash benefit. This is applied based on each surgery and the cash benefit is HK$500 for Flexi Regular, HK$800 for Flexi Plus, and HK$800 for Bowtie Pink.

Is there an age limit for a hospital companion bed?

There is no age limit for a hospital companion bed. Only one hospital companion bed is covered.

What are the differences between deductible and co-insurance?

Both deductible and co-insurance are the amounts you need to pay by yourself in the event of a claim. The main difference is the calculation method.

Co-insurance is calculated by a percentage of the medical expense amount of each claim and applied to the corresponding benefit item(s). For example, in the Bowtie VHIS Standard Plan and Flexi Plan, the insured person is required to pay 30% of the medical expenses for the benefit item of prescribed diagnostic imaging tests (i.e. CT Scan), while the insurance company will pay the rest according to the benefit limits in the policy.

A deductible (or excess) is usually calculated per policy year. It’s the amount you need to pay by yourself in the event of claims before the insurance company pays for your eligible medical expenses. The insurance company would cover any remaining medical expenses according to the benefit limits in the policy.

For example, when you claim your medical expenses with the Bowtie Pink VHIS Plan (Semi-Private Room) Deductible HK$20,000, you need to pay the medical expenses of HK$20,000 first before you can get any reimbursement.Your deductible of HK$20,000 will be deducted from the claim(s) you make; you can only get reimbursed once the HK$20,000 has all been deducted (meaning that you have already fully paid for the deductible amount).

Is the deductible of Bowtie Pink counted per surgery/illness, per claim or year?

The deductible of Bowtie Pink is counted per policy year. For example, your policy year starts from 1 December 2021 (policy effective date) to 30 November 2022. The deductible will be reset on the renewal date (1 December of every year).

If I don't have any medical plan, which deductible of Bowtie Pink is a good fit?

For a first-time buyer of medical plans, it’s suggested choosing a medical plan without deductibles such as Bowtie Pink VHIS Plan - Deductible HK$0. Because this minimises the chance of any out-of-pocket payments. If you’re on a tight budget, Bowtie VHIS Standard or Bowtie VHIS Flexi is a better option.

How do I make use of the deductible of Bowtie Pink and my existing medical plan at claim times?

The suggested practice:

  1. Submit the initial claim with your existing medical plan that has no deductibles (i.e. your company’s group medical plan/personal medical plan)
  2. Submit a claim for the remaining expenses with Bowtie Pink

The benefit is that you can use the reimbursement from the existing medical plan to offset Bowtie Pink’s deductible to reduce any out-of-pocket payments.

Example: 

Let’s say you have bought the Bowtie Pink - Deductible HK$20,000 and you are hospitalised.

Total eligible medical expenses: HK$40,000
Group medical plan’s benefit limit: HK$30,000

First, you submit a claim with your group medical plan and get a reimbursement of HK$30,000, which will offset Bowtie Pink's deductible of HK$20,000 . Second, your medical expenses balance of HK$10,000 (HK$40,000 − HK$30,000) gets fully covered with Bowtie Pink. After these claims, you pay nothing for your medical expenses.

The above suggestion is for reference only and does not guarantee that there will be no out-of-pocket medical expenses. It’s better to consider the suggestion according to your actual situation and the coverage of your existing medical plans.

Can I change the deductible option after applying for the Bowtie Pink VHIS Plan?

The policyholder of the Bowtie Pink VHIS Plan can choose a lower deductible option at a certain age without re-underwriting and without providing further evidence of the insurability of the insured. The certain age depends on the age of the insured person when the policy is issued—if the insured person is 0-55 years old when the policy is issued, the age of re-selecting the deductible option is 65; if the insured person is 56-80 years old when the policy is issued, the age of re-selecting the deductible option is the 10th year of the policy’s effective date or 85 (whichever is earlier).

If you want to lower the deductible of Bowtie Pink anytime, you can make this request to Bowtie on any renewal date. But you are required to go through the underwriting again (re-underwriting). Also, this is subject to Bowtie's discretion to approve or reject any such requests according to Bowtie’s prevailing underwriting practices.

What should I do if I mistakenly gave an inaccurate answer for an underwriting question?

If you mistakenly gave an inaccurate answer for an underwriting question in your application, please contact us as soon as possible through the following channels to make the correction.

Please note inaccurate information may impact claims results in the future.

How come I did not get an instant quote?

If you are unable to get an instant quote, it doesn’t mean your application is declined. It may be due to one of the following:

  • We’re unable to accept your application due to your current health condition
  • You expressed that you have reservations about the answers you provided to our underwriting and need further assistance
  • We’re now enhancing our underwriting system to re-process your application
  • You selected ‘Other illnesses’ and we need more information from you
  • You’re 65 or more and we’ll need to arrange a body check for you to complete the underwriting

If you provided us with your email address during your application, our customer service team will be in touch to assist with your application.

What should I do if I don’t understand an underwriting question and I’m not sure how to answer it?

You can contact us through the following channels if you have questions about our underwriting or unsure how to answer.

Please note inaccurate information may impact future claims results.

How does the underwriting process work?

Bowtie leverages Hong Kong’s first-of-its-kind fully online medical underwriting system to evaluate applicants’ health conditions instantly. No medical examinations or paper forms are required, and as a result, the application process is shortened from at least three days to as quick as 10 minutes.

Based on the health information you provide, we analyse the severity of your previous illnesses and instantly provide the fairest and most accurate premium rates. Typically, if the applicant is in good health, premiums would be low. 95% of the questions in our underwriting system are multiple choice.

The insured person whose age is between 66 and 80 must go to designated clinics to complete the following health assessments for underwriting, after applying for Bowtie Pink.

  • Health questionnaire 
  • Resting electrocardiogram
  • Urinalysis
  • Blood tests include: i) liver function test, ii) kidney function test, iii) complete blood count, iv) lipid (cholesterol), v) fasting blood glucose, vi) glycosylated hemoglobin and vii) hepatitis B surface antigen
Change of ownership of the policy

Bowtie shall not reject any application by the policyholder for the transfer of ownership to 

  1. the insured person who has reached the age of 18;
  2. the parent or the guardian of the insured person if the insured person is a minor; or 
  3. any person whose familial relationship with the insured person is accepted by Bowtie according to its prevailing underwriting practices.
What should I do if during the claims process, I discover that the insured person forgot to declare pre-existing illnesses?

In this case, you need to redo the underwriting process. If the declared health condition impacts the risk assessment outcome, new exclusions may be added to your policy, your premiums may be adjusted or your policy may be cancelled.

Inquiries and complaint channels
  • VHIS Office,  set up under the Food and Health Bureau, handles VHIS-related matters, including product offerings, approved product features and the code of practice for insurance companies under the ambit of the VHIS

  • Inland Revenue Department—manages matters related to tax deductions
  • Bowtie—policyholders can submit their complaints by email at cs@bowtie.com.hk or call the customer service hotline on 3008 8123.
Will my renewal premiums increase because I made claims? Will my renewal be denied due to the claims?

Annual renewal premiums are adjusted according to age. We do not increase premiums for individual policyholders because of the number of claims they made, their claim amounts or their health conditions.

In addition, the VHIS Standard Plan guarantees renewal up to age 100 and the VHIS Flexi Plan (including Bowtie Pink VHIS Plan) guarantees lifetime renewal. We will not reject your renewal request due to your claim history or health condition.

How do I make a claim?

After you have submitted a claim, Bowtie will assign a claims specialist to assist you throughout the claims process and follow up with you. If you have any questions about your claims, you can also call our customer service hotline at 3008 8123 or email us at cs@bowtie.com.hk

If I have questions about Bowtie services, what can I do?

Just like traditional insurance companies, you can contact us through our customer service centre, hotline, email, WhatsApp, or Live Chat for assistance with applications, claims estimates or claims submissions.

If necessary, you can book an appointment to visit the customer service centre where our dedicated service team will serve you.

I have medical insurance policies from two different insurance companies, which one should I submit a claim to first?

It’s completely up to you which insurer you wish to submit a claim to first. If you need to submit a claim to more than one insurer, you will need to include the claims details provided by the first insurance company along with the required documents in your claims submission to the second insurer, as well as the true copy or certified copy of the medical bills.

Before applying, do I need to complete a body check?

If the insured person is 66 years old or more, a body check is needed.

The insured person whose age is between 66 and 80 must go to designated clinics to complete the following health assessments for underwriting, after applying for Bowtie Pink. You’ll be charged only if you want to get a medical report.

  • Health questionnaire 
  • Resting electrocardiogram
  • Urinalysis
  • Blood tests include: i) liver function test, ii) kidney function test, iii) complete blood count, iv) lipid (cholesterol), v) fasting blood glucose, vi) glycosylated haemoglobin and vii) hepatitis B surface antigen
Is there any medical network for Bowtie Pink?

No, there is no medical network for the Bowtie Pink VHIS Plan, which means you can go to any hospital for treatments and claim eligible medical expenses with Bowtie Pink. Adjustments on the benefit payable may apply to hospitals in the US or hospitals that are not in the List of Designated Hospitals in Mainland China.

Can I apply for more than 1 VHIS series policy?

Yes, Bowtie currently allows each insured person to have:

  • two Bowtie VHIS Standard policies or
  • a Bowtie VHIS (VHIS Standard / Flexi Regular / Flexi Plus) policy and a Bowtie Pink VHIS policy (except for $0 deductible plans)
Does Bowtie VHIS provide coverage overseas?

This Plan aims to provide coverage to Insured Persons who reside in Hong Kong, therefore the coverage shall remain effective if the Insured Persons go out of town for business or travel temporarily.

If the Insured Persons plan to permanently reside overseas, we started accepting change of residency requests without policy termination to all Bowtie individual insurance plans (including VHIS, Term Life, Term Critical illness, Touchwood Protector  and Cancer Fighter) in any countries/ regions (except for those subject to sanction restrictions). Generally speaking, depending on where you relocate to, an extra loading might be applied to reflect the higher risks of the relocated countries as fairness to other policyholders in the insurance pool. We encourage customers to contact us if they want to understand how this works.

  • Designated countries/regions include: China (except for Tibet and Xinjiang), US, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, Malaysia, South Korea, Singapore, Canada and South Africa (including Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban only) (appropriate adjustment and revision will be made from time to time)

For any enquiries, please contact our customer service team at 3008-8123.

If I’m insured with the Bowtie Pink VHIS Plan (Semi-Private Room) but I’m arranged to stay in a private room or higher, would Bowtie make adjustments on such payable benefits?

If there is an unavailability of accommodation at the designated ward class due to ward or room shortage for Emergency Treatment, isolation reasons requiring Confinement in a higher ward class, or for any other reasons not involving the Policyholder’s and/or the Insured Person’s personal preference, Bowtie would not make adjustments on such payable benefits.

If I have already claimed from other personal medical insurance or group medical insurance, how would the deductible of the Bowtie Pink VHIS Plan be calculated? Start from the remaining unclaimed amount, or start from the original medical bill amount?

Whether you have claimed from other insurance policies or not, the deductible of the Bowtie Pink VHIS Plan will be calculated from the original medical bill amount. In other words, you can use the reimbursed amount from other insurance policies to pay for the deductible of the Bowtie Pink VHIS Plan.

Can I apply for the same Bowtie Pink VHIS Plan with my family and friends?

No, each VHIS Standard, Flexi, or Pink Plan can only have one policyholder and one insured person. However, policyholders can apply for their eligible family members.

Eligible family members refer to the policyholder's spouse, children, parents, siblings, grandparents, or spouse's siblings, parents and grandparents.

The worldwide coverage of the Bowtie Pink VHIS Plan does not include the US and Mainland China hospitals that are not on the List of Designated Hospitals in Mainland China. If I am hospitalised and receive treatment in the US or a Chinese hospital, which is not on the List of Designated Hospitals in Mainland China, does that mean I am unable to claim the medical expenses from Bowtie?

No. Although the coverage of the Bowtie Pink VHIS Plan does not include the US and Mainland China hospitals not on the List of Designated Hospitals in Mainland China, in this case, we will provide a claim amount not lower than that of the VHIS standard plan for eligible medical expenses because this product is a certified plan under VHIS.

Is there any ward class restriction for the Bowtie Pink VHIS series?

If the insured person is confined in a room of class higher than the designated ward class specified in the Benefit Schedule for any medical services, payable benefits in relation to such days of confinement would be subject to adjustment factors, depending on the ward class in which the insured person is hospitalised in.

Bowtie Pink VHIS Plan (Semi-Private Room):

  • Standard Private Room: 50% adjustment factor
  • Above Standard Private Room: 25% adjustment factor
