DIGI Telecommunications Sdn Bhd in partnership with Gibraltar BSN Life Bhd on March 22 today launched Dengue Cover+, an affordable digital dengue and zika cover with Life Insurance.
Underwritten by Gibraltar BSN, Dengue Cover+ is a fully digital enabled protection plan distributed by Digi and is offered exclusively to all its existing Malaysian Postpaid and Prepaid subscribers between the ages of 18-45 via an easy online sign up.
Leveraging on the Ministry of Health’s insights and current data, Digi subscribers in high alert dengue areas will receive push notifications from Digi to inform them that their residential area is a dengue hotspot and to offer them an opportunity to protect themselves and their families with Dengue Cover+.
The digital insurance plan is available from as low as RM0.15 cents per day and offers Hospital Cash benefits, and Death and Total Permanent Disability (TPD) benefits including additional benefits in case the subscriber suffers from a dengue or zika virus attack. Premiums will be directly debited to their Digi account and applicants are also not required to undergo any form of medical examinations.
Digi chief marketing officer Loh Keh Jiat, said, “Dengue is a rising concern in Malaysia but we recognise that many Malaysians still lack access to affordable healthcare. Our new partnership with Gibraltar BSN enables us to connect our customers who matters most, by offering hassle-free digital insurance solutions and keeping them protected with up-to-date health alerts.”
Gibraltar BSN president and chief executive officer Rangam Bir, said, “Our commitment to protect the dreams of our customers while meeting the evolving protection needs of Malaysians has driven us to innovate, and Dengue Cover+ is the result.
“By applying through their phones, Digi subscribers can easily supplement their existing life insurance coverage with Dengue Cover+ at affordable premium rates. We are pleased that our collaboration with Digi will allow us to protect wider demographic groups and narrow the protection gap as we continue to launch simple, affordable and relevant products to Digi’s subscribers.”
