As a response to the recent dengue epidemic in the island, Fairfirst Insurance has developed a unique insurance product. The first of its kind in the industry, this policy will act as a safety net for people in the event of hospitalization due to dengue fever.
Fairfirst asserts that it is the market leader in medical insurance in Sri Lanka. This was manifested in the Fairfirst medical team being awarded the Excellence in Medical Insurance Award by Fintelekt at the recently held Insurance Industry Awards. Fairfirst won this award in 2016 as well. This was therefore, the second time Fairfirst Insurance bagged this accolade.
“This is a product we began working on as soon as the dengue outbreak took place. We felt that it was part of our responsibility as an insurance provider to cater to the need of the hour.” said Thushara Edirisooriya, Head of Surgical Insurance. “We are proud of what we have been able achieve and will continue to address the growing needs of people”.
The Fairfirst Dengue Policy covers all hospitalization expenses incurred due to dengue fever and also provides a per day cash allowance for treatment at governments hospitals. What makes this cover so relevant are features like the cashless facility, fixed premium regardless of the age group, lifelong renewal and the cover extension for the insured’s family members.
