Ho Chi Minh City, 05th February 2020 – Prudential Assurance Vietnam (Prudential Vietnam) is providing extra protection for customers affected by the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) with coverage of up to VND20,000,000 per case.

The novel coronavirus has spread rapidly within China while cases have been reported in many other countries, including Vietnam. On 30th February, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the virus outbreak a “global health emergency”[1].

With a commitment to support customers against unexpected risks of life, Prudential Vietnam has launched the Special Healthcare Program for customers infected with the virus in Vietnam from the period of 06th February to 30th April 2020. The program offers an additional cash benefit for customers based on the duration of isolated treatment in the hospital. If the duration of the treatment is from 3 to 9 days, Prudential Vietnam will offer financial support equivalent to VND 10 million. If the duration of the treatment is above 10 days, Prudential Vietnam will provide financial support equivalent to VND 20 million. The program is applicable to individual customers who are policyholders and the life insured for both basic products and attached rider(s) issued by Prudential Vietnam.

This program is specifically designed to offer extra financial protection and coverage for customers against the coronavirus. Customers infected by the virus will still be entitled to the existing benefits of their policies, including total and permanent disability benefit, critical illness benefit, hospital care benefit and death benefit, in accordance with the policy terms and conditions.

This program is underscores Prudential Vietnam’s focus to address the healthcare needs of Vietnamese people, as well as reinforces its “we DO for a wealthier and healthier Vietnam” commitment. Mr. Clive Baker, Chief Executive Officer of Prudential Vietnam said: “We believe this timely and comprehensive initiative will bring our customers peace of mind when facing health challenges in face of the novel coronavirus outbreak. This is also aligned with Prudential Vietnam’s efforts to support Vietnamese in their fight against disease as well as their desire to lead a healthier life”.
