PruBSN unveils new medical plan

PETALING JAYA (Dec 12, 2012): Prudential BSN Takaful Bhd (PruBSN), the country's largest takaful operator by new business, has launched a new medical plan to address the need for a comprehensive health and medical coverage for all Malaysians.

Dubbed "Takaful Health2", the plan is available with the company's investment-linked products under the PruBSN Link Series plan.

"Under the latest enhancement, customers may now choose the zero deductible option where all the eligible benefits under Takaful Health2 will be fully covered," said PruBSN CEO Azim Mithani in a statement yesterday.

With this option, customers no longer have to worry about any aspect of the hospital bills for the eligible benefits if they are hospitalised, as these will be fully covered without any co-takaful or deductible.

Certificate holders may also choose from a variety of plans available in Takaful Health2 to suit their financial needs, with minimum contributions from as low as RM100 per month.

PruBSN's new business production measures on an annual contribution equivalent basis, which grew by 23% year-on-year to RM129 million in the first half of 2012. This gives it a 28% market share, up from 26.7% a year ago.
