RED CROSS INSURANCE BENEFITS
Aside from the other Red Cross services, the membership provides financial assistance in times of accident.
“The concept here is that while you share a minimum amount for the Red Cross beneficiaries, you are also protecting yourself,” Gordon said.
For individual members, they could choose to avail of any of the five types of membership. The Classic Membership, for those aged six to 25 years old for only P35, covers P5,000 accidental medical reimbursement and a daily hospital allowance of P150 a day for a maximum of 60 days in a year. The membership also offers a P12,000 disablement, dismemberment or accidental death benefit and a P5,000 burial benefit or unprovoked murder or assault benefit of P12,000.
With a P100 membership fee, the Premier Bronze type of membership aged six to 65 years old covers accidental death, disablement and dismemberment, unprovoked murder and assault benefit of P35,000, P5,000 burial benefit, P5,000 accidental medical reimbursement benefit and P150 daily hospital allowance if hospitalized.
For the Premier Silver and with a P300 membership fee, members could avail of P100,000 accidental death, disablement and dismemberment benefit; unprovoked murder and assault benefit; P5,000 burial benefit, P10,000 accidental medical reimbursement benefit; and P200 daily hospital allowance if hospitalized.
Premier Gold holders with a P500 membership fee and the Premier Platinum holders with a P1,000 membership fee could both avail of P200,000 accidental death, disablement and dismemberment benefit; P200,000 unprovoked murder and assault benefit; P5,000 burial benefit, P10,000 accidental medical reimbursement benefit; and P200 daily hospital allowance if hospitalized.
“The coverage becomes effective on the date of registration with PNRC and members would be issued a membership ID depending on what plan applied for,” PNRC Olongapo Chapter Administrator Eduardo Buena, Jr. said.
Gordon has stressed time and again the importance of preparedness in coping with disasters and emergency situations.
