Starting a family is an exciting experience for couples, but while dealing with the trepidation and preparing for the upcoming financial obligations, some may overlook the importance of medical insurance coverage.
Allianz Life Insurance Malaysia Berhad Chief Product Officer Ooi Haw Yun believes it is essential for couples to add insurance protection into the equation right from the start.
“Starting a family is a long-term commitment. And as with any significant life event, it requires thoughtful consideration, especially in planning how you will spend your money. While prenatal check-ups and preparing for the baby’s arrival will take precedence, having adequate protection for your new family should be non-negotiable,” said Haw Yun.
“Always look for medical protection that not only provides you with adequate cover but is also affordable, flexible, and has your future needs in mind. Re-examine your coverage from time to time as well to ensure that you have the best cover to match your changing needs and the needs of your family,” added Haw Yun.
