Grab drivers to pay as little as 10 cents for critical illness coverage under new micro-insurance plan

Grab drivers between the ages of 18 and 75 may now pay as little as 10 cents a trip to buy critical illness coverage under a new micro-insurance plan.

The Critical Illness: Pay Per Trip (CIPPT) plan, jointly launched by Grab’s insurance arm, GrabInsure, and insurer NTUC Income, offers drivers a choice among three micro premiums — 10, 30 or 50 cents a trip.

With each trip, drivers can accumulate up to S$200,000 in coverage over a 360-day period. The sum assured will depend on the drivers’ age and gender.

The list of critical illnesses which are covered under the plan include:
  • Major cancers
  • Stroke
  • Kidney failure
  • Coma
  • Deafness
  • Blindness
  • Paralysis

Tattoos can be removed three ways:
  • Laser removal, generally the preferred method.
  • Dermabrasion, or scraping away the skin's top layers.
  • Surgical removal, or cutting out top layers of skin.
