Robi has partnered with MILVIK Bangladesh to offer healthcare service for the subscribers. In this regard, the Robi’s digital healthcare package, MyHealth, has hosted a community healthcare awareness event for the local residents of Mirpur today. Robi had handed over a cheque to 30 beneficiaries of the MyHealth healthcare plan as per the package scheme.

Robi’s Head of Enterprise Business, Md. Adil Hossain, Cluster Market Director, Central Southern Cluster, Nazir Ahmed, Vice President, Business Operations, Md. Mahbubul Alam Bhuiyan, General Manager, Voice and VAS, Rizwana Rashid Auni and MILVIK Bangladesh’s Country Manager, Akira Morita were present on the occasion.

In total, 45 doctors and nutritionists had taken part in the day-long health awareness event. The local residents present at the event could consult with this contingent of medical professionals spread across 10 healthcare booths at the event venue. Along with the health awareness camp, the local residents were also made aware of the benefits of subscribing to Robi’s “My Health Family Pack”.

They were informed about how this unique package combines unlimited access to tele-doctor consultations with hospitalization cash-back benefit. The package was intended to provide customers with protection from financial risks emanating out of poor health conditions. Thanks to MILVIK’s mobile-based digital solution, Robi & Airtel customers can sign up for the product using their mobile phones.

For just BDT 60 per month, customers can enjoy a hospitalization cash-back facility of up to 30,000 taka along with unlimited access to quality medical advice from qualified doctors for themselves and their family by calling 21216. The hospitalization cash-back facility is underwritten by Protective Islami Life Insurance Limited.

Speaking about the event, Akira Morita, Country Manager of MILVIK Bangladesh, said: “We’re pleased that the event has been so well received and we greatly appreciate the opportunity to bring financial and healthcare education to people of Bangladesh. Accessing quality healthcare can often prove challenging for many, and if people are forced to spend nights at hospitals due to worsening health conditions, they may have to deal with the financial stress of unexpected medical costs in addition to coping with ill health. Today’s event has allowed us to promote the value of insurance as a financial buffer as well as to raise awareness of affordable health and insurance services that can really help people safeguard their health as well as their financial future.”

Robi’s Vice President, Business Operations, Md. Mahbubul Alam Bhuiyan said: “Insurance uptake in Bangladesh has traditionally been the lowest in South Asia, leaving people at risk of significant financial challenges in the event of illness or accidents. Through this community engagement, Robi and its partner, MILVIKL Bangladesh, attempted to highlight the importance of having financial safety net and presented to them the Robi MyHealth package which offers them low-cost and easy-to-use digital healthcare service facility. We plan to continue this community engagement initiative in the future.”
