Parents of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder often encounter difficulty obtaining insurance coverage for these children. SpecialCare (Autism) is an insurance plan specially designed to give financial protection to this specific group. Besides having the common features of a personal accident insurance plan, this plan also offers customised benefits such as paying for medical expenses to treat specific infectious diseases (eg. hand, foot and mouth disease and dengue fever), paying for physiotherapy and psychiatric treatment when the child suffers trauma after an accident; and waiving the premium for 5 years if the parent or legal guardian of the child/ward meets with an accident and dies.
