Unify 25% savings plan in 2020

This product has a medical savings account for day-to-day medical expenses that earns interest on unused funds which are carried over to the next year. A special GP consultation benefit for children provides cover when your savings are depleted, while a basket of insured preventive care benefits keeps your health in check. Add to that generous hospital benefits and Unify is a smart choice to make.
