Prudential Life Assurance (Thailand) Public Company Limited (“Prudential Thailand”) is partnering with AIS, a leading telecom operator in Thailand, to offer one million AIS customers free 60-day COVID-19 coverage of up to THB550,000. The programme is in tandem with the recent launch of Prudential Thailand’s latest innovation “Pulse by Prudential” (“Pulse”), an artificial intelligence (AI)-powered mobile app that gives Thai users access to healthcare services and real-time health information to help them manage their health better.
Downloadable for free from Apple and Google Play stores, Pulse offers users 24/7 access to a comprehensive set of mobile tools and real-time health and wellness information. The key features currently available on Pulse include: Healthcheck, which creates a health report and offers insights into potential long-term disease risks represented through the Digital Twin, a graphic representation of the human body broken down by organ, based on the user’s inputs to a digital questionnaire; Symptom Checker, which gives users a better understanding of worrying symptoms and direct them when best to seek further advice from healthcare professionals; Hospital Finder, an interactive map that allows users to easily see which accredited clinics and hospitals are in close proximity to them; and Body Mass Index (BMI) and Wrinkle Index, AI-powered features that help users understand their body fat and ageing speeds respectively, as well as other health and lifestyle metrics by uploading a simple selfie photo.
From now until 6 August 2020, Prudential Thailand will be providing free, 60-day COVID-19 insurance coverage to AIS Customers who download and register their profiles on Pulse. This insurance coverage includes a lump sum cash benefit of THB5,000 if the insured is diagnosed with COVID-19; a cash benefit of THB500,000 if diagnosed with a coma; and a death benefit of THB50,000. The coverage will be effective for a period of 60 days once the eligible customers have received a confirmation SMS from Prudential Thailand. The special offer is limited to one million AIS customers across Thailand.
Mr. Robin Spencer, Chief Executive Officer of Prudential Thailand said, "Prudential Thailand is very pleased to work with AIS to promote Pulse app and offer a special COVID-19 coverage to its customers with no extra charges. By leveraging the strong expertise of both partners, we are committed to developing healthcare services and product innovation to respond to the evolving needs of our customers and Thai people nationwide."
Mr. Somchai Lertsutiwong, Chief Executive Officer of AIS, said, "The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted Thai people to take better care of their health, and at the same time, leverage digital technology to do this. As a leader of digital innovation, AIS has joined forces with Prudential Thailand to introduce Pulse, the AI-powered health app to provide Thai people access to healthcare services and health advice, which match well with their present-day "New Normal" lifestyle. The app will evolve to cover other value-added services in the near future. Therefore, AIS wants to make it more convenient for AIS customers to use Pulse app by connecting it to our myAIS application."
