Digi has today announced that they are offering Covid Cover, a short-term insurance plan that protects subscribers stricken by the virus. This is a joint effort with Gibraltar BSN aimed at keeping customers protected with an affordable insurance plan.
The 30-day plan is free for the first 200,000 applicants, and is valid for all Digi customers who’re Malaysians and are aged 18-60 years. Successful applicants need not pay for the monthly premium for the one month they’re covered. Subscribers will receive benefits such as Hospital Cash where patients get RM60/day if hospitalized, or RM20,000 in the unfortunate case of death due to COVID-19.
The offer is open until April 30 and can be accessible via the MyDigi app. Regardless of when you subscribe, you will get 30-days of coverage from the date of approval; so if you are approved on 30 April, your plan will expire on 30 May.
If you miss out on the free plan, customers and non-customers can still opt for Digi’s other plans including not just COVID-19 coverage but dengue fever and zika as well. The plan starts at RM5/month for the Silver package, RM10/month for the Gold package, and RM20/month for the Platinum package. These offerings also pay out for hospitalization as well as death coverage too.
