Health issues are one of the financial concerns of Filipinos nowadays. Let’s face it, hospitalization costs a lot. From bills to medicines, it’s really serious. So why not prevent it. Just as the saying goes “prevention is better that cure.”
With this, Sun Life of Canada (Philippines), Inc. wants to focus on preparation and prevention as keys to living a robust life. Just like what Ms. Mylene Lopa, Sun Life’s Chief Marketing Officer emphasized that “Now more than ever, we are very conscious of our physical health and well-being. It is an encouraging space for Sun Life to be in, where we highlight financial security and overall wellness as complimentary to each other.”
They offer three health initiatives that are empowering as they are financially rewarding. SUN Fit and Well is a comprehensive health protection while Go Well is a free and informative wellness community and lastly, the SUNPIOLOGY RUN: Sugar Wars, one of the most awaited, star-studded charity fun race which will benefit the Hebreo Foundation.
Last October 11, 2016, at Sofitel, Sun Life held its press conference for this initiatives. Here are some of the information related to health empowerment.
SUN Fit and Well provides coverage for 114 critical illnesses and can help replace funds used for diagnostic procedures and check-ups. But more than a usual health insurance, it provides benefits to help and keep customers healthy and well. It is available in limited pay and advantage variants, which includes hospitalization and follow-up care with a specialist as explained by Ms. Mylene Lopa.
With the SUN Fit and Well, the whole journey from prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation is covered. This is an all-embracing philosophy that makes it the most comprehensive product solution of its kind, with a life insurance policy for added protection and peace of mind.
