FWD Life Insurance covers COVID-19 and vaccine complications in affordable plans


FWD Life Insurance announced the inclusion of COVID-19-related coverage reward through affordable and digitally accessible insurance plans that provide life, accident, and critical illness protection. In partnership with Pacific Cross Insurance, the reward covers in-patient treatment of diagnosed COVID-19 illness or complications from COVID-19 vaccinations.

The reward comes with every new purchase of FWD Life Insurance’s KanMend, KanLive, KanGuard, or a combination of all three in one protection plan. Customers can claim their cash rewards amounting from PhP30k to PhP90k regardless of their hospital bills from confinement for COVID-19 or vaccination complications. The benefit is on top of their Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) and other health plans.

“We constantly look to innovate our products and services with the goal to meet current needs and conditions with our vision of changing the way people feel about insurance. We’re here to help them prepare for any eventuality that the pandemic may cause so they can continue to celebrate living with their loved ones,” said Li Hao Zhuang, President, and CEO of FWD Life Insurance.
