As the number of COVID-19 cases continue to increase every day, the Government has called on a private and public partnership to manage the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the country.
Together with Life Insurance Association of Malaysia (LIAM), General Insurance Association of Malaysia (PIAM) and Malaysian Takaful Association (MTA), Hong Leong Assurance (HLA) will be working closely with Bank Negara Malaysia and the Ministry of Health to explore avenues to ease the expenses of patients requiring treatment in private hospitals under the current circumstances.
Since the start of the pandemic, HLA has been continuously offering our customers the following benefits to ease their financial worries in the event of a COVID-19 diagnosis:
Complimentary Dual Special Benefit Programme
HLA and Hong Leong MSIG Takaful (HLMT) have jointly pledged RM 1 Million to the Complimentary Dual Special Benefit Programme for COVID-19.
Our individual medical policyholders are able to benefit from this Programme if they are diagnosed with COVID-19, as it offers Hospitalisation Benefit of RM200 per day up to 30 days of hospitalisation at any government hospital or government quarantine centre.
HLA is also pleased to extend this Programme to our individual medical policyholders who are admitted to private hospitals but are not eligible to claim medical and hospital expenses, as their individual medical plan does not cover communicable diseases requiring quarantine by law.
On top of that, we also offer RM10,000 as Compassion Benefit to policyholder’s family members in the event of death due to COVID-19, regardless of whether the policyholder was hospitalised prior to death.
This benefit will be given out at no extra cost on a first come, first served basis until 30 June 2021, or exhaustion of the RM 1 million fund, whichever earlier.
