Allianz Life Insurance Malaysia Bhd paid out more than RM10 million in critical illness claims last year, its Chief Operating Officer Stefan Ritz said.
In a statement yesterday, he said 50 per cent of these claims were contributed by cancer followed by heart disease and stroke.
"For cancer, breast cancer is on the rise, being the most claimed cancer followed by colon cancer and bronchus and lung cancer with more women being affected.
"We also find that people between the ages of 30 and 39 make more claims for critical illness, which identifies that an illness doesn't come with age, so taking precautions and detecting early is important for everyone," Ritz said.
The company receives more than 600 claims requests a day. -
