First Ukrainian International Bank (FUIB) will provide 1,500 medical workers with health insurance against the COVID-19 (coronavirus) disease at its own expense. Nine reference hospitals, which take COVID-19 patients and where appropriate healthcare providers are at rhigh risk of infection, and Mariupol emergency care hospital medical workers will receive the insurance.
Starting on April 17, the StopCoronavirus insurance program from ASKA-Life insurance company is available for medical workers of Dnipropetrovsk Regional II Mechnikov Clinical Hospital, Pershotravenske Central City Hospital, Kramatorsk City Hospital No. 3, Mariupol I.K. Matsiuk City Hospital No. 4, Mariupol City Hospital No. 9, Mariupol emergency care hospital, Podilsk City Hospital (Odesa Region), "Specialized Medical Unit" of Enerhodar City Council of Zaporizhzhia Region, Transcarpathian Regional A. Novak Clinical Hospital and Berdiansk territorial medical association for three months.
"Some of the doctors who go to work every day to stop the pandemic and save the lives of Ukrainians are clients of our bank. During the recent weeks, we have been looking for ways in which we could be useful to them. That is how the idea with insurance came up. FUIB paid for insurance of 1,500 doctors at its own expense. They all are our customers, whom we were able to insure remotely. The insurance has no temporary deductibles and is valid from the day after the conclusion of the contract," commented Vyacheslav Melikhov, Head of FUIB's retail insurance business.
The maximum amount of coverage under the insurance is 10,000 UAH. The insurance covers the first COVID-19 disease that led to inpatient or outpatient treatment. The amount of the insurance payment is 3% from the insurance coverage for each day of treatment. In the case of a fatal outcome, the insurance company pays an additional payment of 10,000 UAH.
"There is still no state program for medical personnel insurance against coronavirus in Ukraine. Therefore, most doctors do not have corresponding health insurance, and if they are infected with the virus, they will have to be treated at their own expense. In partnership with FUIB, ASKA-Life initiated the StopCoronavirus program, which is designed primarily for doctors who, as a rule, are not covered by ordinary health insurance because of the risks of the profession. Such insurance projects for doctors are now very much needed. And they can only be done in partnership with a responsible business," commented Olena Pantova, Director general of ASKA-Life.
In the near future, the StopCoronavirus insurance program from FUIB and IC ASKA-Life will be available for other medical professionals.
