Digital Health (DH), a Grameen social business previously known as Telenor Health, is launching a new insurance product to cover Covid-19 related expenses. 

The product, named “Corona Insurance,” is being offered free of cost to 100,000 subscribers online on a first come, first served basis, according to a press release.

Corona Insurance will provide Tk2,000 to a person if their Covid-19 test is positive and they have to go into home isolation, Tk5,000 upon hospitalization due to Covid-19, and Tk20,000 as life insurance. The coverage will last for 60 days from the date of enrollment, and is effective immediately after enrollment.  

The free offer is valid until June 11, 2020, or until 100,000 people have availed it.

All individuals who enroll in the program will receive a series of health videos and other content on dealing with coronavirus. Those who wish to enroll can do so at the following website: https://care.dh.health/insurance.

Earlier on March 28, DH launched a free online “Coronavirus Symptom Checker” at https://coronachecker.dh.health/. The questionnaire took an average of 3 minutes and 41 seconds to complete, and recommended people to contact the government Covid-19 helplines 333 and 16263 if they were identified as high risk.

Both the DH Symptom Checker and Corona Insurance are designed to help reduce public anxiety at this critical time, and reduce the financial impact of the crisis on families and wage earners.

DH has been offering digital healthcare services for the last four years and has a client base of over five million.

In the press release, DH CEO Sajid Rahman said: “It is comforting to know that the vast majority of patients may not be infected by coronavirus – they can take normal measures to recover from their fevers and sore throats. It is important that people prepare themselves and their families for coronavirus. We expect that our efforts to minimize anxiety with the Symptom Checker and the Corona Insurance will also help reduce pressure on the healthcare system.

“At a time of great anxiety, providing 100,000 people with free health and life financial protection against coronavirus can make a difference to the preparedness and resilience of the people. With your support, Digital Health will continue to find new innovations to help people more and more to tackle this public health and economic threat,” the DH CEO added.
