Yes. Any such change would take effect on the Policy Anniversary Date. You should raise such a request well before the Policy Anniversary Date.

If you have signed up for a Standard Plan policy, the Company will offer the Standard Plan for renewal on the Policy Anniversary Date by default. You are also allowed to choose our Flexi Plan as an additional option for renewal. However, any upgrade of benefit to Flexi Plan requires your application to go through the underwriting process.

On the other hand, if you have signed up for a Flexi Plan policy, the Company will offer the same plan level of Flexi Plan for renewal on the Policy Anniversary Date by default. If you are not willing to accept the Flexi Plan offered for renewal you are allowed to choose our Standard Plan as the fall-back renewal option. You should raise any such request well before the renewal date.

Premiums paid by a Hong Kong citizen for himself/herself and his/her specified dependant(s) for TaxVantage Prestige Medical Plan, TaxVantage Plus Medical Plan and/or TaxVantage Medical Plan on or after April 1, 2019 are qualified for a tax deduction. Premiums paid can be claimed for tax deduction up to HK$8,000 per Insured Person per year. For details of the tax deduction arrangement and illustrative examples, please refer to the website of VHIS at and the website of the Inland Revenue Department.

No. You should claim tax deduction in respect of the premiums paid in that year of assessment.

Since you paid the qualifying premium on March 1, 2020 (i.e. in the 2019/2020 assessment year) instead of in the 2020/2021 assessment year, you may claim the tax deduction for the 2019/2020 assessment year. To be eligible for tax deduction claim under 2020/2021 tax assessment year, the premium must be paid on or after April 1, 2020.

The detailed interpretation of the VHIS qualifying premium can be found in the Inland Revenue Ordinance (Cap. 112). According to the Inland Revenue Ordinance, the net premium for VHIS in every year of tax assessment paid by the policyholder, i.e., excluding the premium for supplementary benefits, levy and premium discount, will be treated as qualifying premium. Proof of Premium Payment will then be issued for the purposes of tax deduction.

About Migration

YF Life already conducted a one-off migration arrangement for customers from Apr 1, 2019 to Nov 30, 2020.

Individual Indemnity Hospital Insurance Plan (“IHIP”) policies effective before the implementation of the VHIS (April 1, 2019) were eligible for migration.

The following FAQ are the details of that specific migration: 

Migration was subject to underwriting factors including insurable interest, health risk, occupational risk, residential risk and lifestyle. Material facts and information on consumers for underwriting purposes include client’s family history, physical history, physical findings, occupation details, place of residence and relationship between Insured and Policy Holder or/and Beneficiary.

Upon successful migration to the VHIS Certified Plan, the existing IHIP coverage was terminated.

Any benefit exclusions and/or extra premium rate(s), if applicable, under the existing IHIP policy, were applied to the VHIS Certified Plan after migration.

For Migration from a Hospital & Surgical Plus policy to a TaxVantage Plus Medical Plan (Flexi Plan) policy, the period for which all the requirements for entitlement of No Claim Bonus have been met under the existing Hospital & Surgical Plus policy will be brought forward to the TaxVantage Plus Medical Plan policy for the purpose of calculating no claim premium discount. Any outstanding No Claim Bonus due to the termination of the Hospital & Surgical Plus policy, if any, will be forfeited according to the terms and conditions of No Claim Bonus of the Hospital & Surgical Plus policy.

VHIS Certified plans cover unknown pre-existing condition, i.e. a health condition has existed but the Insured are unaware of its existence on the effective date. Eligible expenses will be paid in accordance with the terms and conditions as listed in the policy provisions.
