Last Updated on by Tree of Wealth

One thing unique about this Critical Illness plan is that it is gender specific, very suitable for those who wants specific coverage for a whole rounded protection. Both plans are similar, the only differences in coverage are the Male/Female Illness Benefit, Surgery Benefit as well as Reconstructive Surgery, Skin Grafting Benefit and Support Benefit.

Early stages are covered as well, albeit more gender specific. Prior to this, AXA;s standalone critical illness plan, the AXA Early Stage CritiCare has since been taken out of the market.

AXA currently also has a multiple payout CI plan, read about our review here: AXA Super CritiCare Review

Who Is More Suited To This Gender Specific Plan?

  • Gender Specific for comprehensive cover for Critical Illness, as well as surgical and reconstructive and support benefits.
  • Standalone Critical Illness plans that cover for a specific period of time, increasing the coverage protecting your prime working age when you need it the most

It would however be less suitable if:

  • You are looking for a high death protection cover
  • You are looking for limited pay premium term and coverage for life
  • ALL Critical Illness Coverage
