Isn't it about time that there was an insurance product that identified the distinct needs of women?
Did you know that if you were diagnosed with cancer, as 1 in 6 females are between the ages of 30 and 64, a standard trauma insurance policy would more than likely only cover you when the cancer is fully invasive?
Fact and figures
- Women aged between 20 and 50 are almost 2.5 times more likely to be admitted to hospital than men. (Source: Selected Morbidity Data for Private Hospitals 1995.)
- In 1995, 69, 146 men in this age group were admitted to hospital compared with 167,898 women. (Source: Selected Morbidity Data for Private Hospitals 1995.)
- Women make up 51% of the population but account for 57% of all hospital discharges (Source: Statistics New Zealand.)
- There were 73,289 procedures performed on males and 83,020 performed on females in 1995. (Source: Selected Morbidity Data for Private Hospitals 1995.)
- The most common group of procedures performed on females was 'Procedures on the female genital organs', accounting for 20% and 19.4% of all female in-patient and day-patient procedures respectively. (Source: Selected Morbidity Data for Private Hospitals 1995.)
Women cannot be categorised. They are not simply a breadwinner, a homemaker or a caregiver. The environment we live in demands that they be all these things, and more. However, despite being the cornerstone of the family unit, women's protection needs have never been adequately addresses by insurers.
We can offer insurance at affordable rates that addresses the unique protection needs of women, covering:
- Various cancers - Invasive Cancer, Early invasive Cancer, Female (carcinoma in situ).
- Conditions effecting women - Osteoporosis fractures of the spine and hips, Chronic autoimmune hepatitis, Severe endometriosis, Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) with nephritis.
