( COVID-19 pushed our healthcare system to the limits with hospitals declaring critical capacity especially at the onset of the disease in 2020 (and then again during the surge in the first quarter of 2021). Likewise, Filipino patients infected with the virus are burning their pockets to stay alive—that's on top of making ends meet in the middle of an economic recession. In an effort to provide some financial support, mobile wallet apps GCash and PayMaya are offering free COVID-19 health insurance to their users.

GCash, through their GInsure feature, is offering two health insurance plans through their partner Singlife: GInsure Cash for Dengue & COVID-19 Costs and GInsure Cash for Income Loss (Accidents). Both policies cover up to three months and can be availed through Globe and TM promos. Coverage for COVID-19 and dengue includes test allowance of up to P500 for dengue, confinement allowance of up P40,000, and medical cost reimbursement of up to P100,000. Coverage for income loss due to disability, on the other hand, includes a monthly cash benefit of P100,000 to be paid out in 12 monthly installments.
