Any cost occurred for an emergency medical repatriation back to Malaysia and follow-up treatments back home are covered too!

2. Flight delays, cancellation or disruption
It may frustrate you when your dream vacation is interrupted with unforeseen circumstances. Not to worry, MHinsure covers you up to RM300 for every 5 hours of flight delays, cancellation or disruption.
