Britam Insurance has introduced a COVID-19 care package for Little Cab commuters. The passengers will get to enjoy the care package if they test positive for COVID-19 within 10 days after their last trip.
Britam will provide home-based care to the commuters by availing them with medical kits and essential drugs, teleconsultations with a doctor, nurse and nutritionist. The commuters will also have access to a mental health specialist.
"Now as the economy reopens, we want to build on our digital experience and expand health care support to these customers by providing them with access to home care treatment in case of COVID-19 infection," Britam's Group Managing Director Benson Wairegi told Nation.
The care package will be open to those Little Cab passengers who have tapped into the digital accidental trip insurance. Commuters pay Sh10 for every trip to enjoy the personal accident cover of up to Sh150,000.
With the current surge in COVID-19 cases in Kenya, the government has been urging asymptomatic patients to seek home-based care.
As of December 1, 2020, 1,275 patients had been admitted to different health facilities countrywide. 8,070 were on home-based isolation and care.
