Cambodia – Forte Insurance has launched the Personal Accident and International Emergency Medical Assistance policy designed to provide a safety net for individuals and families to protect their finances in the event of an accident in Cambodia or anywhere in the world.
Annual premiums are affordable, starting from 500KHR or 13 cents a day for up to USD50,000 coverage, and available to purchase for people aged 18 to 65 years old. Benefits include emergency medical evacuation and repatriation, local and overseas medical expenses, permanent disablement and death due to accidents, 24 hours, 7 days a week.
One of the key features of this insurance policy is the wide range of accidents covered, such as traffic accidents, burns, snake bites, insect bites, concussion, bodily injuries, emergency dental work, food poisoning and drowning.
Traffic accidents are unfortunately common in Cambodia, especially during the holiday season. According to a report by the National Road Safety Committee, there were almost 13,700 injuries and more than 2,000 deaths due to traffic accidents in 2019. This makes road traffic one of the leading causes of deaths and injuries in the Kingdom.
Mr. Youk Chamroeunrith, Group CEO of Forte Insurance, said: “Nowadays, many people are worried about traffic accidents. Some accidents can cause serious injuries and families had to spend a lot of money on healthcare costs for their loved ones. Some families even sold their homes just to afford healthcare.”
Mr. Chamroeunrith continued: “At Forte, we care about ensuring that people have financial protection in order to secure their future and that of their families. Therefore, the policies we offer are designed to give people peace of mind and support them through challenging situations.”
