How to get the RM300 Covid-19 Test Fund?

The Life Insurance Association of Malaysia (LIAM), Persatuan Insurans Am Malaysia (PIAM) and the Malaysian Takaful Association (MTA) have established the COVID-19 Test Fund (CTF) to support the Ministry of Health’s (MoH) efforts to conduct more COVID-19 testing for the benefit of medical insurance policyholders and takaful certificate holders. RM8 million has been pledged by the insurance and takaful industry to this fund.

Medical insurance policyholders and takaful certificate holders may apply for reimbursement up to a maximum of RM300 for COVID-19 testing (one reimbursement per individual) to maximize the number of tests that can be supported by the CTF.

Who is eligible to claim from the CTF?

The CTF is only applicable for insurance policyholders/takaful certificate holders with group/individual medical and health-related insurance policies and takaful certificates, who have been referred by registered doctors for the COVID-19 test at recognized private labs as listed on the MoH COVID-19 website.

Your insurance policy/takaful certificate must be in force as of 27 March 2020 and at the time the COVID-19 test is conducted.
