Insurer’s pandemic coverage pays over P57 million
Patients can incur large expenses for getting hospitalized when availability of a treatment for a disease is uncertain. Epidemics and pandemics are normally excluded from medical insurance coverage for this reason. “We have always thought of Pacific Cross as an instrument in aiding our clients especially in these trying times. We want to be a reliable and trusted ally for our customers. We will continue to be here for our clients by providing support to them when and where we can,” said Pacific Cross president and chief executive Daniel Daly on why they decided to provide coverage for COVID-19. As of January 2021, Pacific Cross Philippines assisted over 400 clients affected by COVID-19 and has paid over P57 million in medical claims. The Department of Trade and Industry reported a 41-percent increase in business registrations in 2020. Because a healthy team keeps operations running smoothly, it is necessary for businesses, regardless of size, to provide medical protection to their workforce.
