Sun Life Grepa Financial, Inc. (Sun Life Grepa), one of the top 10 life insurance companies in the Philippines, recently partnered with MyHealth Clinic, one of the fastest-growing network of ambulatory medical clinics, to provide Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) with a unique package that addresses their needs.
Called the MyHealth OFW Kabisig Kit, the special package includes two (2) Kabisig cards for discounts on MyHealth's services, a SMART Money card for convenient mobile money services, and a Php 50K 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 cannot afford them. Furthermore, these employees are pushed to perform in their workplace and the resulting stress can severely affect their physical well-being. Any untoward effect on their health can 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 thus conceptualized in order to provide OFWs with an affordable and effective way of looking after themselves through discounts on quality medical services. The addition of a personal accident coverage greatly enhances the card offer because it gives cardholders an income replacement tool that can help address the financial needs of their loved ones should the cardholder become involved in an accident resulting in permanent disability or even death.
"MyHealth Clinic is always looking for ways to ensure that more Filipinos enjoy compassionate, convenient and cost-effective care that will help them stay in peak form and enable them to perform well. We also recognize our OFWs' sacrifices and great contribution to the country, so as a tribute to them, we came up with the idea of the MyHealth Kabisig Kit, which we are giving to them for FREE," says Dr. Frederick Tan, President of MyHealth. "We partnered with Sun Life Grepa because they share our vision of improving more lives and we believe that their life protection product can truly make a difference in the lives of our patients."
Richard Lim, President of Sun Life Grepa, is likewise heartened by the initiative of MyHealth to expand its care beyond medicine. "This is one of the ways by which we can give people a brighter future by helping them be prepared for life's unexpected moments. We are glad that MyHealth has given us the opportunity to make this available to more Filipinos through their network. We support MyHealth in their continuing quest for ways to promote better health and wellness in the workplace."
OFWs can avail of this free package by availing of pre-employment medical services at MyHealth Clinic - SM North EDSA in Quezon City, and at MyHealth Clinic - Robinsons Cybergate in Cebu City. For more inquiries, visit sunlifegrepa.com or www.myhealth.ph.
