If the claim is admitted, the payment of claims will be made to the policyholder.
The Doctor’s Statement is a form provided by Great Eastern Life, to be completed by the doctor who attended to the insured person for his illness. The policyholder has to request the attending doctor to complete the Doctor’s Statement and the fee for the completion of the Doctor’s Statement will be borne by the policyholder. Should the Claims Department require additional medical reports, the medical report fee will be borne by the Company. In addition, all relevant laboratory and test results need to be submitted.
The Living Assurance benefits provide a worldwide cover. However, the insured person’s condition must be certified by a qualified physician practising Western medicine. The Company reserves the right to ask the insured person to be reviewed by an appointed physician.
If a special endorsement (Endorsement No. 100) is included in the insured person's policy, eg. for foreigners and PRs, the insured person is required to be diagnosed in Singapore, Malaysia or Brunei. However, the Company will still consider the medical evidence if the illness is diagnosed in other countries. If the medical evidence is sufficient, the Company may choose to pay the claim on goodwill basis without admitting liability. Otherwise, the Company reserves the right to ask the insured person to be reviewed by an appointed physician.
If the policyholder does not know the exact diagnosis of his condition or does not know which Major Illness it falls under, the policyholder may show the policy with the Major Illnesses’ definitions to his attending doctor and seek the doctor’s opinion whether the condition fulfils any of the Major Illnesses. If it does, the policyholder should request the attending doctor to complete the Doctor’s Statement of that particular Major Illness.
