If I switch from a higher coverage Integrated Shield Plan (IP) to the Standard (IP) with the same insurer, will I need to go through additional underwriting and will my previous exclusions remain?
If you are intending to switch to a plan with lower coverage within the same insurer, you will not need to go through additional underwriting*.
However, any exclusions on medical conditions you had on your original Integrated Shield Plan (IP) will be retained when you switch to a new plan.
You may wish to speak to your financial advisor who will be able to advise on your options.
*However, if you are on a higher coverage IP and had gone through moratorium underwriting, you will need to go through underwriting to switch to the Standard IP.
