I THOUGHT BEING AN OC MOM IS ENOUGH
Late last year, my son Zee was diagnosed with Dengue, outbreak nung time na yun.
After using mosquito repellants, putting citronella patches and making sure he’s taking enough vitamins. Sadly, nagka-dengue pa din noon si Zee. Kapag nanay ka, feeling mo kasalanan mo kapag nagkakasakit ang anak mo, di ba?
It was my son’s first hospital confinement, kaya imagine mga mommies ang pain ko as a parent, not to mention due to the outbreak, puno lahat ng hospital and clinics nearby, thankful to her ninang who happens to be his Pediatrician too. She referred us to a clinic where there was an available room. She told us that Dengue can be treated at home, but since Zee was still young, she highly recommends na i-confine for better monitoring to avoid dehydration and other possible complications.
I can relate to parents na nagsasabi na mahal magkasakit. True enough, we spent almost a week in the hospital so imagine also how much our bill was. But thankful that my son’s pedia-ninang didn’t charge us anything for her doctor’s fee, super God’s favor talaga and since it’s a small clinic mas cheaper din compared kung nasa big hospital kami.
But that’s not the case for everyone, I know people who spend almost P100,000 (if not more than) for dengue confinement. Magugulo talaga ang budget ng family. What if the family doesn’t have an emergency fund, Philhealth or HMO? For working parents who need to stop working to look after the child? Paano? It can really result in stress, even debt.
EXTRA PROTECTION IS THE KEY
Thankfully, we’ve learned our lesson last year and after that incident, we became intentional in looking for ways to help us when unforeseen situations like hospitalization costs happen.
This month, naka-schedule sa priority spending namin ang kumuha ng new Dengue Insurance dahil pa-expire na yung nakuha namin last year.
I checked baka may mga new offer online, and thankful that I saw Singlife’s Cash For Dengue Costs– it is a comprehensive yet very affordable protection product for mild-to-severe dengue cases, pasok sa budget ng bawat Pamilyang Pinoy for as low as P300 a year lang mga mommies.
May multi-level benefit din sya – test allowance, confinement and even reimbursement for severe cases which can really be a big help for medical costs.
Ang pinaka nagustuhan ko, may FREE Covid Coverage din sya ngayon for first 10,000 users, magagamit natin either for Dengue or Covid. Very timely this season, di ba? I also love that we can avail this in the comfort of our home and in less than 5 minutes using our smartphones.
HOW TO AVAIL THE SINGLIFE CASH FOR DENGUE/COVID INSURANCE?
- You can buy Cash for Dengue Costs with free COVID-19 cover under G-Insure (on your Gcash App) – Make sure lang that your account is fully verified, and you are between 18 years old to 54 years old, you are in good health (not a Covid or Dengue Positive) to avail this product.
- Choose your desired coverage or package. May three options – Bronze(starts at P300), Silver(starts at P550) and Gold(starts at P700).
You can check each package’s different coverage benefits in the app.
Kami, we chose the Gold “Family Plan” – P3150/year for me, my husband and for Zee. Kung 17-year old and above na ang kid ninyo P2,100 lang ang family of 3 plan. As young as 30-day old baby pwede nyo gawing dependent sa Family Plan.
- Fill up the needed information – your dependent’s details, your chosen plan, then confirm your payment.
Nagulat ako na nasend na ang ang copy ng policy namin sa registered email address ko agad. Super easy lang talaga, kayang kaya matapos in less than 5 minutes mommies.
Even filing a claim and payouts if ever na kailangan sya gamitin, all can be done using our smartphones so very convenient talaga.
And yung payment ng Singlife, it will be credited to your Gcash Account, kaya andali lang mga mommies, no need to go to their office etc to avail the benefits.
WHY SHOULD WE GET AN INSURANCE LIKE THIS? KAILAN DIN DAPAT KUMUHA?
For extra protection and peace of mind, mas ok na prepared at OA tayo kesa mag regret tayo na wala tayong mga ganito in the end. Also the best time to get one, is now, while we are healthy and strong. We can no longer apply for one if we are already sick.
Insurance like this is just an added protection especially for possible financial stress due to hospital costs, possible debt because of unforeseen medical expenses, but let us not forget to do our part, to stay healthy and active plus ofcourse, daily prayers for God’s protection against any sickness and illnesses.
I hope this new product helps mga mommies. It is always wise and practical to invest in health.
