Health Insurance / Takaful Coverage for Novel Coronavirus (2019-NCOV)

The Life Insurance Association of Malaysia (LIAM) and Malaysian Takaful Association (MTA) wish to inform that all life insurance companies and takaful operators will provide hospitalisation coverage/treatment due to Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) to their policyholders/certificate holders.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has just declared the outbreak of the coronavirus as a global health emergency.

“Even though a majority of the medical policies/certificates carry an exclusion on communicable diseases requiring quarantine by law, the Malaysian life insurers and takaful operators are responding to an immediate need of the nation by waiving the exclusion on quarantine by law in light of the increasing number of people who have been affected,” announced by Mr Mark O’Dell, Chief Executive Officer of LIAM. 

“Policyholders/certificate holders are advised to check with their respective insurance companies/takaful operators for the benefits and terms and conditions of their health insurance policy/takaful certificate,” added Mark.

To our fellow Malaysians, we wish to advise you to take precautionary measures as advised by the Ministry of Health Malaysia such as practising the highest standard of hygiene by often washing hands with soap or hand sanitizers, using a face mask, avoid visiting crowded places, etc.  More details on the coronavirus is available at www.moh.gov.my

Kindly contact the respective life insurance companies/takaful operators directly if you wish to find out more about your insurance/takaful coverage.
