Lifetime Cancer Limit refers to the maximum total amount per Insured that FWD will pay under Cancer Benefits of CANsurance Cancer Protection Plan - Schedule of Benefits for all Covered Cancers from CANsurance Cancer Protection Plan. If the Insured is insured under multiple CANsurance Cancer Protection Plan policies, the Lifetime Cancer Limit will apply across all of these policies, even those policies that have terminated. Once the total amount paid or payable under Cancer Benefits of CANsurance Cancer Protection Plan - Schedule of Benefits reaches the Lifetime Cancer Limit, the policy will terminate.
You may apply to convert the CANsurance Cancer Protection Plan policy to a designated full medical reimbursement plan if the policy has been in effect for at least 9 consecutive years from the policy date or the date of last reinstatement, whichever is later. This option is only available if FWD offers a designated full medical reimbursement plan at the time of conversion and subject to FWD’s rules at that time. You may apply when the Insured is aged between 38 and 64 years old (both actual ages inclusive) and within 31 days immediately before or after the respective policy anniversary without providing further health evidence from the Insured. Once approved, conversion will take effect on next policy anniversary and you cannot withdraw the application. CANsurance Cancer Protection Plan will be terminated once the policy is converted. Any claims for any Covered Cancer made under CANsurance Cancer Protection Plan or the converted policy of designated full medical reimbursement plan are subject to the Lifetime Cancer Limit. FWD will not cover any illness or injury (including pre-existing conditions) under the designated full medical reimbursement plan if it occurred before the policy date or the date of last reinstatement (whichever is later) of the CANsurance Cancer Protection Plan. Premium payable under the designated full medical reimbursement plan is not guaranteed and will be determined on conversion. You cannot exercise this benefit in conjunction with Job Changer Benefit, Special Event Benefit or Extended Grace Period Benefit. CANsurance Full Medical Plan is currently the designated full medical reimbursement plan of CANsurance Cancer Protection Plan and FWD can revise from time to time without prior notice.
After exercising the Convertibility Option, CANsurance Cancer Protection Plan is converted to the designated full medical plan (CANsurance Full Medical Plan for now), and the coverage will be changed as below.

You will bear the default risk in the event that FWD is unable to satisfy its financial obligations under this insurance contract.
Exchange rate and currency risk
The application of this insurance product with the policy currency denominated in a foreign currency is subject to that foreign currency’s exchange rate and currency risk. The foreign currency may be subject to the relevant regulatory bodies’ control (for example, exchange restrictions). If your home currency is different from the policy currency, please note that any exchange rate fluctuation between your home currency and the policy currency of this insurance product will have a direct impact on the amount of premium required and the value of benefit(s) to be received. For instance, if the policy currency of the insurance product depreciates substantially against your home currency, the potential loss arising from such exchange rate movement may have a negative impact on the benefits you received from the product and your burden of the premium payment.
The cost of living in the future may be higher than now due to the effects of inflation. Therefore, the benefits under CANsurance may not be sufficient for the increasing protection needs in the future even if the Company fulfils all of its contractual obligations.
Except Compassionate Death Benefit, CANsurance Cancer Protection Plan does not cover any Covered Cancer 7 resulting directly or indirectly from or in respect of any of the following:
The premium is non-guaranteed and will be determined annually based on the age of the Insured on his or her next birthday at the time of renewal. The premium may increase significantly due to factors including but not limited to age, claims experience and policy persistency.
The premium payment term of the policy ends on the policy anniversary immediately preceding the Insured’s 100th birthday.
FWD allows a Grace Period of 30 days (or Extended Grace Period in CANsurance Cancer Protection Plan) after the premium due date for payment of each premium. If a premium is still unpaid at the expiration of the Grace Period, the policy will be terminated from the date the first unpaid premium was due. Please note that once the policy is terminated on this basis, you will lose all of your benefits.
