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.

Etiqa Philippines has lined up similar efforts to support the frontliners as the times remain uncertain.

"We are honored to extend this benefit to our selfless heroes who fight for our freedom from this pandemic and render assistance when many of our countrymen are locked up inside their homes.  We will support—and lead programs that strive to help Filipinos to be protected and covered, especially those who work hard to protect us. This is our way of humanizing insurance,” Bautista added.
