Here’s all you need to know.

What is it?

RM5,000 will be paid in lump sum to patients diagnosed with Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) by any of the hospitals identified by the Ministry of Health Malaysia.

  1. RM1,000 payout to family upon death

Your coverage period starts from the day of successful enrollment confirmation by Boost until 30 April 2020. Death during this coverage period for any reason except suicide will receive a death benefit of RM1,000.

Eligibility requirements

Aside from being free of charge, what differentiates this life insurance from other insurance plans is that Malaysians with pre-existing medical conditions are eligible as well!

  • Malaysian
  • Aged 18 – 55 years old
