Full cover for medical expenses
Expenses such as surgeon fees, intensive care, prescribed diagnostic imaging tests and prescribed non-surgical cancer treatments are covered in full up to your annual benefit limit (HK$25 million for Advance Plan and HK$30 million for Deluxe Plan) for treatments in Asia, Australia and New Zealand (see Remarks 1, 2).
Generous Protection for Cancer Treatment
With full cover for prescribed non-surgical cancer treatments, you don’t need to worry about medical bills adding up if you’re diagnosed with cancer. Treatments such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy (including but not limited to proton therapy), targeted therapy, immunotherapy and more are fully covered up to your annual benefit limit so you can focus on recovery.
Mental health support
This plan is the first VHIS plan in Hong Kong to prioritise mental health, including full cover for inpatient psychiatric treatments across Asia, Australia and New Zealand, as well as a free 24-hour Mental Health Service Hotline which offers personalised emotional support and face-to-face counselling services (see Remarks 1, 3).
More affordable healthcare with deductible options
Choose from four deductible options to lower your premium: HK$0, HK$12,000, HK$40,000, HK$80,000. A deductible is the amount of eligible expenses that you must pay each year. Bupa will cover the remaining amount up to the benefit limit.

You can choose to lower or remove your deductible within 30 days before the renewal date without re-underwriting once at age 50, 55, 60, 65, 70, 75, 80 or 85. This provides more flexibility for budget planning after retirement.
