MANILA, Philippines - Sun Life Grepa Financial Inc. has teamed up with MyHealth Clinic to provide overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) with a unique package that addresses their needs.
The partnership between one of the top 10 life insurance companies in the Philippines and one of the fastest-growing networks of ambulatory medical clinics would offer the MyHealth OFW Kabisig Kit to Filipinos working abroad.
The special package includes two Kabisig cards for discounts on MyHealth’s services, a Smart Money card for convenient mobile money services, and a P50,000 personal accident coverage from Sun Life Grepa.
The MyHealth OFW Kabisig Kit is given for free to all OFWs who avail of MyHealth’s pre-employment medical package and are fit to work via a medical clearance from any of MyHealth’s Metro Manila and Cebu clinic branches.
Aside from addressing health concerns that arise from busy work lifestyles, the partnership seeks to heighten the awareness of people on preparing for life’s uncertainties through insurance.
Studies have shown that people tend to forego basic preventive care after they complete their pre-employment exams because they could not afford them.
Furthermore, these employees are pushed to perform in their workplace and the resulting stress could severely affect their physical well-being.
Any untoward effect on their health could also naturally bring about concerns regarding the financial well-being of their loved ones should anything happen to them - something that many Filipinos are, unfortunately, not prepared for.
The MyHealth OFW Kabisig Kit was conceptualized to provide OFWs with an affordable and effective way of looking after themselves through discounts on quality medical services.
