“We are a proud partner of Ufone in design, delivery and servicing of insurance products and have reached out to scores of customers over the past three years of working together. Increased health awareness in members of mass-market is one of the outcomes of COVID-19 and over time we have been getting feedback from a large number of customers asking for a product covering their family members. We thank for the support and patronage of Ufone for making this new package available to their customers and hope it will play a significant role in deepening health insurance penetration in Pakistan.”Mr. Rehan Butt, CEO MicroEnsure Pakistan and Vice President Micro Insurance Company Group said
Insurance coverage is quickly becoming a common necessity vis-à-vis the lack of medical facilities and infrastructure in the public sector leading to enhanced reliance on private health services.
