Counting on good nutrition


LAST month, the government announced the MySalam and Peka B40 schemes to assist cost of living (Bantuan Sara Hidup) recipients with their healthcare expenses. The MySalam insurance scheme aims to cover recipients aged 18 to 55 by providing a one-off payment of RM8,000 should the policy holder be diagnosed with one of the 36 critical illnesses identified under this plan. It also has provisions for daily allowances for up to 14 days of hospitalisation annually.

The Peka B40 scheme covers recipients aged 50 and above and provides free health screening, a lifetime coverage for medical devices and rehabilitation equipment up to RM20,000, incentives to complete cancer treatments and transportation allowance.
