ArchipelagoInsurance Limited (AIL) recently launched another innovative hospitalisation and surgical (H&S) insurance product by introducing the first-ever Shari’ah compliant H&S plan – MediSavers Takaful

This breakthrough product caters to the growing demand for H&S plan that provides comprehensive coverage for costs of medical treatment incurred by the person covered for hospitalisation, day surgery costs and various outpatient treatments and also to secure the financial security of customers in their golden years. MediSavers Takaful H&S is a tailor­made product to suit medical needs. The cover duration is one year and it may be renewed (the Takaful Certificate) with an annual or monthly payment basis before the certificate anniversary date.


Commenting on this ground breaking product, Ian Lim, Principal Officer of Archipelago Insurance Limited stated, “This is the first H&S Takaful product that is available for the South­East Asia market and treatments are available in both Malaysia and Singapore. It is designed to meet the needs of customers who require affordable, flexible and family-oriented medical and hospitalisation coverage.”

Under the partnership, MediSavers Takaful H&S is promoted and marketed through licensed professional financial advisors and brokers within the SEA region and this provides the opportunity for AIL to leverage on its distribution network. In Malaysia, this product is distributed via Standard Financial Adviser Sdn Bhd, a licensed Financial Adviser under Bank Negara Malaysia.

Ian Lim further commented that he targets to achieve Takaful window’s throughput premium of USD5 million by end of this year.

The annual premium can be as low as SGD200/year for the most basic plan and some of unique features of MediSavers Takaful would be that it is valid till 30 June 2115 unless it is cancelled or withdrawn in accordance with the terms and conditions stipulated in the certificate. MediSavers Takaful, which comes with per disability limit for a deductible plan and annual limit for a basic non-deductible plan, is designed to cover hospitalisation and surgical expenses due to sickness and accidental causes up to year 2115.
