Emerald plan has a one-time emergency inpatient care due to accidents while the Diamond plan has a one-time emergency inpatient care coverage due to accidents, viral and, or bacterial illnesses.

Emerald and Diamond plans also include maternity assistance of up to P7,000 and up to P10,000, respectively.

Emerald and Diamond plans further add P50,000 coverage for accidental death and dismemberment.
