AIA Malaysia steps up to show its appreciation for all the doctors, nurses and hospital staff who have been making sacrifices and contributions in their line of duty under tremendous challenge.
AIA will provide financial support to all doctors, nurses and hospital staff working in Ministry of Health (MOH) designated hospitals involved in screening and admitting COVID-19 patients in Malaysia.
These national heroes are the country’s first line of defence in the fight against Covid-19, said Ben Ng, Chief Executive Officer of AIA Berhad, and they hope that with this contribution can help give the frontliners and their families peace of mind as they battle on the frontlines against this virus.
“We sincerely thank all doctors, nurses and hospital staff for the sacrifices they are making in these extraordinarily challenging times.”
He expressed that as Malaysians, we have to battle together and must remain hopeful to ride out this storm as one.
The financial support comes with benefits such as the inconvenience allowance which allows a doctor, nurse or hospital staff diagnosed with COVID-19 when carrying out their duties to receive a one-time inconvenience allowance of RM 1,000.
And, in the unfortunate event that the doctor, nurse or hospital staff passes away due to COVID-19, an additional lump sum of RM10,000 will be paid to his/her beneficiary as compassionate relief.
The financial support provided to doctors, nurses and hospital staff is effective from 1 March until 30 June 2020 or when the total fund of RM2 million is fully disbursed (whichever is earlier), with no waiting period.
This comes on the back of AIA’s earlier announcement to provide free additional insurance and takaful coverage to its customers, employees and Life Planners.
The coverage also provides hospitalisation and death benefits as part of AIA’s commitment to continue to look after its customers and people, ensuring that they are always well-protected.
