If you have child insurance, you do not have to queue
You learn something new with your child everyday, and you never know what’s going to happen next. When your child is hurt or falls ill, you do not feel like queueing to see the doctor or have an examination. A child insurance, that is, a child’s health and living allowance insurance, enables your child to have the best possible treatment without having to wait for it, also privately and without having to worry about the expenses.
If you want to insure your unborn child, read about the insurance policy. By insuring your child as early as possible you can ensure that illnesses emerging before the policy’s entry into force will not affect coverage.
Suitable child insurance for you and your family
You can choose whether you want the child insurance to cover only accidents or both accidents and illnesses, including examinations and surgery. Child insurance also covers medication and will help in recovery, because it compensates for a variety of therapies, such as physiotherapy and occupational therapy.
We recommend the most extensive child’s health and living allowance insurance, especially for young children. As the child grows, you can adjust the coverage as necessary, and the comprehensive insurance will continue to provide coverage until the age of 100.
My children had plenty of ear infections when they were under 3 years, and having ventilation tubes put in for both cost about 3,000 euros. Good job we had child insurance! It’s also handy that you can go straight to a specialist.
Child insurance includes coverage at home and in outdoor exercise
You can also choose to have the policy to cover a range a help needed at home. How would you like to have a policy that paid for a nanny when a doctor orders a child in daycare age to be treated at home? When your child is ill, it is also a relief that you can ask a doctor or nurse to make a home call.
Child insurance covers a child’s outdoor games and non-competitive exercise. If your child goes in for sports in a sports club and participates in competitions and matches organised by a sports club or federation, you can extend coverage to include competitive sports. This can be done by adding athletes’ cover to your health insurance, or through Sports Cover.
A child’s health and living allowance insurance is granted on the basis of the child’s own health declaration. An child’s guarding fills in the health declaration online, and it is used to determine whether the policy can be granted.
A policy may nevertheless be granted even if the child is not entirely healthy. This means that any of the child’s diseases that have already emerged may affect the extent of coverage offered.
It is important that you do not terminate any existing policy until you have received a decision that a new policy has been granted.
