GREAT Eastern has pledged RM1mil for its Covid-19 vaccine fund to assist customers following the roll-out of the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme.
The fund is extended to customers of Great Eastern Life Assurance (M) Bhd, Great Eastern General Insurance (M) Bhd and Great Eastern Takaful Bhd.
Customers of Great Eastern Life Assurance (Malaysia) must be a registered e-connect user, whose policies are in force during the fund’s coverage period, which is from Feb 25 to Dec 31 this year, or when the fund has reached its RM1mil limit.
The fund aims to support customers with daily hospital cash benefit of RM200 per day, up to a maximum of seven days for hospitalisation due to adverse effects following immunisation (AEFI), within 14 days of receiving an approved Covid-19 vaccination.
Additionally, a lump sum of RM10,000 is provided for AEFI-related deaths occurring within 30 days of receiving a Covid-19 vaccine or from the date of admission to hospital due to AEFI.
“Safeguarding the physical and financial well-being of our customers has always been at the core of everything we do, ” said Great Eastern Life Assurance (M) Bhd chief executive officer Datuk Koh Yaw Hui.
“Since the onset of Covid-19, we have been introducing initiatives to support our customers on every journey during these unprecedented times.
“The Covid-19 vaccine fund is another such initiative, as they prepare for their vaccination, ” he said.
The Covid-19 vaccine fund is in addition to its RM2mil financial assistance programme announced in February 2020, to help customers mitigate the effects of the pandemic, which was fully utilised.
