Three notable features of the
WiseProtect Pro are as follows:

Customers of the “Noble” benefit level will enjoy an annual benefit limit of up to MOP40 million. The coverage allows our customers to focus on addressing their health issues without worrying about exhausting the benefit limit.
2) “Noble” benefit level provides global2 medical coverage
Embracing the concept of global citizenship, the top-notch “Noble” benefit level provides worldwide2 non-emergency treatment coverage, so customers can receive quality medical protection even when they are abroad. Policyholders can also receive private nursing service provided by a qualified nurse for a maximum of 30 days per policy year during their hospitalisation. Insured persons under the age of 18 who are hospitalised for at least 5 consecutive days can receive extra financial support of up to MOP5,0003.

In addition, all “WiseProtect Pro” customers can enjoy worldwide emergency treatment coverage. Comprehensive protection will be available to an insured person who is unfortunately involved in an accident when travelling and in need of emergency treatment to prevent death, permanent damage or other severe consequences.
