Just when we thought we were winning the battle against dengue - with continued information campaigns on its prevention, and the release of a dengue vaccine - DOH reports that from the period of January to June 2016, dengue cases were up by 35.7% from the same period last year. As of June 25, 2016, reported cases of dengue reached 57,026, with 248 deaths.
Because dengue is a year-round scourge and no longer seasonal, the battle continues, as Filipinos are urged to keep their surroundings clean to prevent the proliferation of breeding grounds for mosquitoes. In the meantime, Pioneer offers support – in case dengue strikes, the financial burden of the disease can be eased with its unique product, MediCash Dengue.
"Sa halagang P350 na kinuha ko na Pioneer MediCash Dengue Insurance, in just 3 days natanggap ko ang P10,000 medical cash assistance," recounts one of the customers, who was able to make a claim when her 13-year-old daughter was diagnosed with Dengue.
MediCash Dengue is available at Pioneer branches nationwide, SM Bills Pay, and InsureShop (shop.pioneer.com.ph). You may also redeem MediCash Dengue for only 280 points using your Globe Rewards points, just text REDEEM<SPACE>MEDICASHDEN and send to 4438.
