Arpico Insurance has introduced Diabcare, an unique policy cover dedicated exclusively for patients diagnosed with diabetes.
According to the National Diabetes Center of Diabetes Association of Sri Lanka (DASL), over two million Sri Lankans are diabetic. Diabetes is one of the four major types of noncommunicable diseases prevailing in the world today. In the past, opting in for a health insurance could have been difficult for people with diabetes however, recent reforms have improved access to coverage.
Inspired by the parent company’s Group Chairman Dr Sena Yaddehige’s vision to serve all Sri Lankans in their hour of need, Arpico Insurance now offers this unique product to persons who are currently being treated for Diabetes.
“Diabetes is undoubtedly a life-threatening disease if one doesn’t manage it well, and the number of those diagnosed with it is skyrocketing in Sri Lanka just like abroad. As a leading insurance provider we make it our obligation to stand by our people and society. We thrive to seek ways in providing the best possible solution to issues we face today,” stated Harsha De Alwis, CEO, Arpico Insurance.
“Diabcare is a unique plan specifically designed to provide customers with the financial protection and support in fighting this self-managed disease,” he further said.
What makes this product stand out is that the sum assured will be paid in the event of the demise of the insured or if the insured is diagnosed with one of the critical illnesses covered namely cancer, stroke, blindness/total loss of sight, end stage renal failure (ESRF), and amputation of a limb.
In addition, upon the completion of three years of the policy, the insured is able to receive reimbursements of medical expenses for diabetic related tests prescribed by a doctor, up to the value of 5,000 rupees annually, until the end of the policy-term.
