Hospitalia Continuity waiting policy protects your whole family

Most employer-sponsored group insurance policies  protect your whole family. Hospitalia Continuous Cover waiting policy does that too: for your child, your partner and you. This waiting policy ensures that all of you remain insured if your employer-sponsored hospitalisation insurance ends. That way, you have total peace of mind.

Practical questions and answers

Hospitalia Continuity is a waiting policy. This policy allows you to continue to be insured under the same conditions as your employer's hospitalisation insurance after your pension, redundancy or if you change jobs. Specifically, what it means is that you do not have to make a new application when you switch to a Hospitalia insurance policy. For example, you cannot be excluded for reimbursements related to a pre-existing condition if you received the diagnosis during the term of your group insurance.

This can be done quickly, easily and digitally via the My Helan app (mobile) or via My Helan (desktop). Complete the reimbursement application and attach proof of your group insurance reimbursements. We do the rest.

Is your retirement looming on the horizon, or are you changing jobs? Let us know that your employer's group insurance will be discontinued, and which insurance you want to switch to: Hospitalia, Hospitalia Medium or Hospitalia Plus. Contact us and we will arrange a seamless transition.

You can join Hospitalia Continuity up to and including your 64th birthday. However, it is advisable to join the waiting policy as early as possible. After all, the younger you are at the time of joining, the less you pay.

What are the terms and conditions?

Wondering what exactly Hospitalia Continuous insurance entails?

  • View the general conditions and info sheets for each of VMOB MLOZ Insurance's insurance products on our overview page.
Every insurance policy has a waiting period. That is the period from the time of your affiliation that you have to bridge before you can start to actually receive reimbursements. All Hospitalia insurance policies have a waiting period that is limited to six months. The same applies to Hospitalia Continuity. This means that you are effectively insured from the sixth month after you become a member.

You can stop your insurance at any time with a cancellation period of at least one month. The cancellation period starts on the first day of the month following the date you discontinued your insurance. You can find the standard cancellation form in My Helan. It  can be sent by registered post to: Boomsesteenweg 5, 2610 Wilrijk.  You can also drop off your letter at your nearest Helan office or upload it via our contact form.

Think carefully before you decide to stop your insurance. Hospitalisation is becoming increasingly expensive; pre-admission and aftercare costs also run high. With our hospitalisation insurance, you will be able to sleep soundly if you are admitted and avoid financial worries after an (unexpected) hospitalisation. Make an appointment with an adviser if you have any questions about your insurance or premium contributions.

You will need to complete a medical questionnaire when you join Hospitalia Continuity. On this basis, the medical adviser may decide to accept your registration with a restriction or exclusion with regard to reimbursements related to the disease. If you are admitted for a reason other than the condition mentioned in the medical questionnaire, you will be reimbursed (in full). 

“Someone told me about the Hospitalia Continuity waiting policy when I changed jobs. I will be able to quickly and affordably join Hospitalia Medium through the waiting policy if I change employers again. It was mainly the price of the waiting policy that won me over. It's so cheap, and I will get so much in return later.”
