Rewarding you for staying healthy
We know the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. Your efforts in healthy living will be rewarded, not just with good health, but also with savings on your premiums through a claims-based pricing approach.
What is claims-based pricing?
Claims based pricing is a fairer pricing approach for our policyholders to save on premiums without compromising on medical care.
It is applicable for PRUExtra Premier CoPay, PRUExtra Preferred CoPay, PRUExtra Premier#, and PRUExtra Plus# customers only.
How does it work?
With claims-based pricing, you will start off at the Standard Level Premium, the lowest premium level of your age band. You also enjoy the PRUWell Reward, a percentage discount on your Standard Level Premium when your policy is incepted with no exclusions. Each year, your premium level will be determined by any previous claims you made during the review period. As long as you stay healthy, with no claims made on your supplementary plan, you will continue to enjoy the PRUWell Reward on your Standard Level Premium at your next policy renewal.
Claims-Based Pricing for our private supplementary plans - PRUExtra Premier CoPay, PRUExtra Preferred CoPay, and PRUExtra Premier#
Our unique claims-based pricing mechanism rewards our customers for staying healthy and modest usage of healthcare services
When you’re in a pink of health and did not make any claims on your PRUExtra plan, you’ll enjoy 20% off your Standard Level premiums at your next renewal premium.
And your premiums will either remain at Standard Level Premiums, or move down 1 level if you are at a level higher than the Standard Level Premiums
If you prefer to seek treatment at a Private Hospital, your claims-based premium multiplier will move up at least 2 levels. Look for Private Hospital under our PRUPanel Connect, and you can limit your premium increase to 1 level (instead of 2 or 4 levels).
After your PRUShield claim is paid, if you manage to recover a min of $1,000 by claiming for the medical treatment from other policies, such as your corporate insurance plan, your premiums will either remain at Standard Level Premiums or move down 1 level if you are at a level higher than the Standard Level Premiums. This is an alternative to keep your personal insurance premiums affordable.

Panel Providers include:
Note: PRUPanel Connect value-added services are applicable for all under (1) and a selected number of Restructured Hospitals and Medical Practitioners/Specialists under (2), all of which are listed on the PRUPanel Connect website.
Non-panel Providers are Private Hospitals and private medical institutions listed under Non-panel on our website. They also include non-participating private specialists operating in Private Hospitals listed under Panel Providers. We reserve the right to change this Panel or Non-panel list from time to time.
Should there be occurrences of Private Hospitals and Restructured Hospital claims within the same review period, only the claims under Private Hospitals will be added together to calculate the premium level. If there is a claim from a Private Hospital or private medical institution that is not under our Panel Providers, and it is made within the same review period as a Panel Provider, the premium level will be based on the Private Hospital or private medical institution that is not under our Panel Providers’ premium level to determine the movement on premium level at policy renewal.
