ANNOUNCEMENT – Expansion of the Eligibility Criteria for COVID-19 Test Fund (CTF)28 Dec 2020
We would like to inform that the coverage under the COVID-19 Test Fund (CTF) has been expanded to include asymptomatic patients and hospital admission. Asymptomatic patients refer to individuals who may have been infected by the virus but do not have any symptoms of cough, sore throat, flu, etc.
All policyholders who are asymptomatic are now eligible to claim from the CTF for the COVID-19 test performed at any authorised labs or medical facilities registered with the Ministry of Health Malaysia.
The CTF reimbursement is limited to one test per policy/certificate holder only and the reimbursement period is valid until 30 June 2021 or earlier, if the fund is fully utilised.
The CTF is an RM8 million special relief fund set up by the insurance industry to support the Ministry of Health’s efforts to conduct more COVID-19 tests for Malaysians. The CTF provides a fixed cash reimbursement up to RM300 (one time per individual) for the cost of COVID-19 testing under individual or group Medical and Health Insurance policies/takaful certificates.
If you have further inquiries, do drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep calm and stay safe!
