Healthcare in terms of both cost and quality are major concerns for an overwhelming majority of the people in a country like Bangladesh. In many cases, people don’t have easy access to quality medical advice, especially in cases of emergency. Besides, for many, picking up the cost for special medical attention in a hospital can cause severe financial hardship. Thankfully, all the concerns have to a large extent been addressed through an innovative mobile based health insurance scheme, MyHealth.
A leading digital service provider of the country, Robi, and the leading mobile based health and insurance services provider, MILVIK, together is providing a mobile based health and hospital cash-back service, MyHealth.
Just to give an example, last year, MyHealth has settled more than 4,000 claims across Bangladesh as well as provided more than 200 thousand tele-doctor consultations to their customers. Besides, over the last one year, MILVIK and Robi have organised free health camps in Dhaka, Chattogram, Cumilla and Feni benefitting more than 10,000 people in local communities. Organising a week-long celebration of MyHealth claims settlement throughout the country has also helped to gain confidence of the people on this innovative health insurance scheme.
Bangladesh has one of the lowest rates of insurance penetration in South Asia. Naturally, lack of this safety net puts a large section of people in jeopardy when they suffer from some illness or are met with accidents. In this context, the simple and easily accessible mobile health insurance scheme with reliable insurance settlement track-record — MyHealth, is considered to be an effective measure against the rainy days of our lives.
