Etiqa Philippines bags Insurance Asia Awards for COVID management initiative
At the height of the pandemic, the company delivered 5,700 complete sets of personal protective equipment (PPEs) worth P5 million to more than 14 major partner hospitals. Etiqa Philippines also gave 28,000 men and women of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) free 6-month insurance coverage for pneumonia-related hospitalization expenses, including those caused by COVD-19. "It is with great privilege that we at Etiqa Philippines receive this recognition. We dedicate this award in honor of the brave and heroic frontliners who defend our country through these times. We are proud and happy to be of service to the Filipino nation especially during those troubling times when we were just beginning to understand how to deal with the virus. We will continue to serve our fellow countrymen, especially those who stand in the frontlines, exposing themselves to risk,” said Etiqa President and CEO Rico Bautista. The donation to the NCRPO, in particular, helped allay concerns among policemen about their medical security as they venture out into the streets, exposed to the virus while protecting the public. The medical coverage amounted to P2.8 million worth of insurance costs – and included P50,000 worth of room/board and general hospital services and up to P10,000 accidental death and dismemberment benefits.
Formerly known as AsianLife & General Assurance Corporation, Etiqa Philippines serves the nation with a wide range of insurance portfolio, including health plans that stand on a medical network composed of 30,000 doctors and 1,600 accredited clinics.
