An airman who cast his lot with GCash Insurance before he was sent off to Zamboanga City for duty never thought that his latest battle would be against a dreaded virus, not separatists or rebels in the hinterlands of Mindanao.

Roberto (not his real name) was exposed to a person who carried the COVID-19 virus while he was on duty and he and his colleagues had to be isolated at an Air Base Hospital in Zamboanga City.

He had to undergo the mandatory 14-day quarantine but he made good use of the long layoff to file the claims from GCash Insurance, a comprehensive insurance product of Life, Personal Accident, and Daily Hospital Income.

The entire transaction was concluded through phone calls and emails. Roberto easily received the benefit amount conveniently through his GCash wallet after complying with the requirements.

"We at GCash believe that there is a huge need to bring insurance products closer to Filipinos. By offering personal insurance products to GCash users, we are allowing them to reap the immense benefits of having insurance policies that are not only affordable, but also very convenient,” GCash Chief Technology and Operations Officer Pebbles Sy said.

GCash Insurance provides GCash users with valuable financial protection for medical emergencies, accidents and/or death for as low as P39 a month.

GCash partnered with MicroEnsure Philippines, a leading microinsurance brokerage in the world, to provide Filipinos access to insurance underwritten by top insurance provider AXA Philippines, for this innovative offering. #coronavirusimpact #COVID19PH
