Here is a follow-up post about insurance for dengue since I got quite a number of inquiries after writing about my personal experience about Dengue Fever.
Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post and I am not in any way connected with Pioneer Life.
To give you a background, Pioneer MediCash, from Pioneer Life is a brand of health insurance products that provide medical cash assistance in the event the insured is diagnosed with the specifically covered disease –Dengue even if the insured is not hospitalized.
Once the insured is diagnosed with the covered disease – Dengue even without hospital confinement, the insured can claim medical cash assistance of P10,000 lump sum.
Frequently Asked Questions
1.Who can be insured?
Anyone between 1 – 70 years old
2. What is the coverage period and effective date?
Coverage is one year from the Effective Date or from Effective Date up to Claim. Once a claim is paid coverage terminates. This means that you can only use this once, As there are no medical tests required, a 15 day waiting period from Effective Date is in effect. This means that no signs or symptoms of the disease should be observed and that the initial doctor's consultation should not have occurred during the waiting period.
3, How to file a claim?
Claims can be processed online via email or Viber. I submitted 3 easy requirements:
- Valid ID
- A claim form to be signed by your attending physician
- My dengue NS1 lab result.
I believe that if you did not take the Dengue NS1 test.You may opt to submit your CBC lab results.
4. How long does it take to process a claim? Processing of claims is at 3-5 working days but based on my experience, it was deposited to my bank account after 6 days.
5. What is the mode of payment of the claim?
Claims will be deposited on your preferred bank account (BPI, BDO, Metrobank, etc) for faster processing. It can also be in a form of a check by request.
6. Is it transferable?
No, it is not transferable. The registered name on the card is the only person who files a claim. The price is Php 350 good for 1-year coverage.
