Clinikk Healthcare, the company behind India’s one-click/phone-call-away health companion has announced the launch of Coronavirus Support Plan- India’s first comprehensive protection plan against the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19). This new-age product will serve as a comprehensive healthcare safety net for individuals infected with the coronavirus, and ensure ongoing treatment for customers and their families in a hassle-free environment.
Clinikk’s Coronavirus Support Plan provides customers with a 360-degree coverage of their health needs while infected with the coronavirus. Combining primary care and financial protection, customers are assured of end-to-end treatment services, including consultations with qualified doctors, 24*7 doctor assistance, and INR 1 lac insurance cover against any hospitalisation costs related to coronavirus.
The company also offers an all-in-one insurance solution custom-designed to aid businesses and corporate concerns in ensuring the wellbeing of their staff in the face of the disease.
Through this offering, Clinikk will support and enhance an organisation’s existing health services through awareness building, doctor consultations, and insurance products.
Dr Suraj Baliga, Co-Founder of Clinikk Healthcare said, “COVID-19, the coronavirus disease, is a serious illness that poses a grave threat to public health. The ease with which it transfers between individuals has seen it rapidly spread across the world, and infect approximately 150,000 people in over 150 countries at present. As such, Clinikk Healthcare has chosen a course of proactive action in the face of this global health crisis. Through our newly launched plan, we offer both individuals and organisations a comprehensive package designed to handle every aspect of treatment in the event of infection. Additionally, we’ve also opened our teleconsultation lines to the public for free. This step will allow individuals to have their questions on the disease be answered by qualified professionals, allaying the stress placed on India’s public health system and reducing the spread of misinformation.”
In addition to these efforts, Clinikk has also taken steps to enhance its existing services by opening its teleconsultation channels to the general public for free. This move will allow concerned individuals to interface directly with qualified doctors for any questions they may have on coronavirus, including its symptoms, precautionary measures to take, and screening procedures.
