Plan Includes Covid-19 Protection Campaign, Mental Health Support and Allowance for Mosquito-borne Diseases
KUALA LUMPUR, 10 March 2021 – With growing awareness for medical protection, soaring healthcare costs and tightened wallets, Tune Protect Malaysia launched its first online cashless e-medical card, PRO-Health Medical. The cashless medical plan provides hospitalisation and surgical expenses benefits to suit consumers’ lifestyles and budget needs.
William Foo (“William”), Chief Executive Officer of Tune Protect Malaysia highlighted, “Today’s digitally savvy customers thrive on convenience and simplicity. They are health-conscious, sensible and realistic in managing their expenses. These insights spurred the features of PRO-Health Medical as a comprehensive, budget-friendly plan that is easy to understand. Sign-up takes less than 5 minutes and claims are hassle-free via our Tune Protect App which also hosts the e-Medical card for cashless admission.”
Unique to PRO-Health Medical is a year-long mental wellness programme with Naluri for the first 1,000 customers, lump-sum allowance for mosquito-borne diseases, Covid-19 additional medical expenses of up to RM20,000 per diagnosis until 31 December 2021* and a charitable pledge by Tune Protect to Yayasan Chow Kit to provide children from less privileged families with access to healthcare for every policy sold.
“The professional overall mental health and lifestyle coaching by Naluri is especially timely given the pressures of keeping up with the “new” norm. Millennials are health conscious and goal driven. If their goal is to lose that 3 kgs they gained while working from home, or to learn how to balance work-life pressures, our programme with Naluri will give them that added assurance and support,” added William.
* For customers who purchase PRO-Health Medical in the month of March 2021
Features of PRO-Health Medical
The e-Medical Card provides customers coverage for hospitalisation and surgical expenses including in-patient, daycare surgical procedures and outpatient treatments expenses due to illnesses and accidents. Other benefits include the zero deductible feature which means that the customer does not have to pay upfront before receiving treatment, an e-Medical Card for a cashless admission at more than 150 hospitals across
Malaysia and reimbursement for alternative and chiropractic treatments post hospitalisation.
PRO-Health Medical can be purchased by first time medical insurance customers or as a supplement to customers’ existing medical coverage. There are four plan types with Annual Limits ranging from RM30,000 to RM150,000 to choose from according to customer’s needs. A unique feature of this product is that it does not have a Lifetime Limit, which means that the Annual Limit is reinstated year-on-year.
PRO-Health Medical can be purchased by downloading the Tune Protect App from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. It can also be purchased from www.tuneprotect.com.
The online medical insurance is available for Malaysians and non-Malaysians who legally reside in Malaysia, aged 18 years old to 45 years old and can be renewed up to the age of 65 years.
Health Segment Aligned to Tune Protect’s Strategic Direction
“The Health segment is one the main business pillars for Tune Protect going forward. The impact of recent global events has increased the awareness and interest in medical insurance especially amongst millennials and Gen Z. We believe this market segment will grow rapidly,” said Ben Assanasen, Tune Protect Group Health Lead.
“PRO-Health Medical signals the start of engaging millennials through the digital space via education and raising awareness of health care at a young age. We want to bring Health to the masses, especially to the millennials segment as they are currently underserved and underinsured,” Ben added.
PRO-Health Medical and Yayasan Chow Kit
In conjunction with the PRO-Health Medical launch, Tune Protect is joining hands with Yayasan Chow Kit (“YCK”) for its children’s health fund, Madhya’s Gift. Tune Protect pledges to contribute RM6 to this fund for every policy sold until 31 December 2021. Madhya’s Gift was set up by YCK to provide healthcare to children from less privileged families who are in need of medical treatment.
The YCK and Naluri initiatives are part of Tune Protect’s sustainability commitment under the health pillar and PRO-Health Medical is the first product to introduce better access to healthcare to those who need it. This sustainability commitment will continue in future online launches.
