Digi has gone into the insurance business by offering Digi Insurance.
This comes as more Malaysians continue to combat Covid-19, Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd (Digi) is offering a free Covid Cover insurance plan to the first 200,000 customers.
It is said that the insurance is the company’s efforts to connect customers to what matters most, keeping customers protected with an affordable and simple to subscribe digital insurance plan.
The Covid Cover offers a comprehensive short-term coverage to customers who may require hospitalisation and treatment during this Covid-19 crisis. Customers can now safeguard themselves with a simple click of a button on MyDigi.
Underwritten by Gibraltar BSN, Covid Cover is a fully digital-enabled insurance plan opened to Malaysians between 18 to 60 years old. Interested customers can easily sign up for the coverage without undergoing any form of medical examinations.
The free Covid Cover plan provides customers with a 30-day coverage from the day it is approved. The coverage includes a Hospital Cash benefit of RM60 a day for hospitalisation due to Covid-19 and a Death benefit of RM20,000. This offer is opened until 30 April 2020 or until all the 200,000 free plans have been fully redeemed.
Customer will be informed via SMS or email that the insurance will soon lapse and be asked to re-subscribe to the plan at an affordable fee via MyDigi, if he or she is interested to continue.
Customers who may have missed the free offer can still subscribe to any of the affordable coverage packages, starting from as low as RM5 and up to RM20 for 30 days. All the plans offer full coverage including Hospital Cash benefits, Death and Total Permanent Disability (TPD) benefits including additional benefits in the event a patient suffers from Dengue or Zika.
