What is MSIG CancerCare Plus?
MSIG CancerCare Plus is a straightforward policy that provides a lump-sum payment if the insured is diagnosed with a major or early-stage cancer.
What is considered a major or early-stage cancer?
You’ll either be entitled to the basic or accelerated benefit depending on your condition:
Major cancer. A malignant tumour that’s positively diagnosed with histological confirmation and characterised by the uncontrolled growth of malignant cells with invasion and destruction of normal tissue. This includes, but is not limited to, leukemia, lymphoma and sarcoma.
Early-stage cancer. Refers to cancer growth that’s still in its early stages and has not spread to other parts of the body.
