The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the vital importance of maintaining our physical and mental wellness, as well as prompted many Thais to seek better health insurance coverage. The pandemic has had a social and economic impact on a large proportion of the 3 million SMEs nationwide registered with the Office of SMEs Promotion (OSMEP). Now more than ever, SME employers need to strike a balance between cost containment and providing comprehensive health benefits for their staff to sustain population health and ensure smooth business operations. The EWC group insurance plan was developed to better serve this segment of the market during these challenging times.
"The EWC plan is unique due to its single premium rate for all genders and age groups. Despite its low premiums, it delivers high coverage and is not tied to any life insurance policy," said Mr. Damian Delaney, Managing Director of Aetna Health Insurance (Thailand) PCL. He added that, "The EWC plan provides members access to a direct billing network of 490 healthcare facilities. This enables them to receive medical treatment without the hassle of making a claim thereafter. The EWC plan also offers daily cash compensation to members who are hospitalized and opt to receive health coverage from social welfare or another insurer, instead of making a claim with Aetna."
