Get protection from a range of serious medical conditions with AMP Trauma Elevate Insurance
If you or someone in your family were to suffer a major illness or injury, the last thing you want to be concerning yourself is money. Unfortunately, when the unexpected does happen and a family member falls ill, many people's first thought is about how much it is going to cost.
That is where AMP Elevate Trauma Insurance can cover you in case of a range of specified trauma events. AMP Trauma Elevate will provide you with a lump sum payment between $50,000 to $2 million if you suffer any of the trauma events listed. Keep reading to find out what conditions are covered and how you can benefit from this policy.
AMP Insurance will pay you a lump sum benefit amount if you suffer one of the trauma events eligible under your policy. The benefit can be used to pay gaps in your medical cover, to pay for those ongoing household bills or to cover those incidental costs like extra childcare. The benefit amount will be determined by the amount specified in your insurance schedule, or will be a portion of the benefit in the event of partial or early payment.
You can take out trauma insurance with AMP in a number of ways:
- Trauma insurance or trauma insurance plus. You can take out standard trauma insurance cover with AMP, to ensure you are protected in case of a trauma event, while keeping your cover affordable if you are budget conscious. Or you can opt for Trauma Insurance Plus, which includes additional features and coverage to meet your changing needs.
- Trauma insurance as a plan. You can apply for a trauma insurance plan, which is independent cover, not linked to any other AMP insurance.
- Trauma insurance as an option. For a lower premium cost you can add trauma insurance as an option onto your AMP life insurance plan, as either Trauma Insurance or Trauma Insurance Plus.
- FlexiLink trauma insurance. Similarly, FlexiLink trauma insurance can save you on your premiums by being attached to your life insurance. However, in this case, some parameters of your FlexiLink trauma insurance must match your life insurance plan, for example if you opt for Consumer Price Index increases on one plan, they must be accepted on the linked plan too.
