upholding its credo of ‘We Care. Always’, Mobitel has partnered with Janashakthi Life to offer its subscribers an affordable, secure and hassle-free Critical Illness Insurance cover that protects them against up to 25 critical illnesses including Heart Attack, Cancer, Kidney Failure and Coronary Artery By-Pass Surgery.

Understanding the health implications of its vast customer base, Mobitel together with Janashkthi Life exclusively devised this package to bring peace of mind to its subscribers and their families. Committed to demonstrate how much it values its customers, Mobitel brings benefits of technology to daily life by evolving the traditional scope of Life Insurance – empowering customers to purchase Life Insurance via their smartphones in order to accommodate changing lifestyle requirements.

The CEO of Mobitel, Mr. Nalin Perera said, “As the National Mobile Service Provider, we feel it is our duty to ensure that all customers enjoy a happy and healthy life. As the pioneer in offering digitalized lifestyle services, we are determined to infuse an element of caring and convenience with this Critical Illness Insurance cover that fulfills all the health care requirements of our subscribers. We are grateful to Janashakthi Life for devising this valuable Critical Illness Insurance plan exclusively for Mobitel subscribers. We are proud to offer our subscribers this timely Critical Illness plan to tide over any health crisis they may face without worrying about hospitalization and treatment costs, trusting in our caring protection.”

Commenting further, Mr. Jude Fernando, Director / Chief Executive Officer of Janashakthi Insurance PLC said, “We are pleased to collaborate with Mobitel to launch this new cover for Mobitel subscribers, which is the first time a Critical Illness cover has been offered in partnership with a telecommunications provider. At Janashakthi Life, we believe in creating innovative and accessible Insurance solutions which are designed to provide our customers with the protection and the convenience they need in today’s world. With the rise of non-communicable diseases in the country, we want to enable customers to safeguard themselves against this growing risk by offering them protection against any of the numerous critical illnesses that are covered through this policy. This initiative also allows us to pass on the benefit of protection to a wide cross-section of customers across the island.”
