It is a reprieve to AAR Insurance clients who can now access medicine at their doorstep as they stay safe from Covid-19.
This is after AAR Insurance Kenya partnered with e-health service providers MyDawa and CheckUps, to roll out a home delivery service that will limit trips by customers to hospitals and pharmacies for medication.
The free home delivery service dubbed ‘Health at your Doorstep’ is a deal-breaker for patients, especially those with chronic illnesses, who require a regular supply of medication.
This means that the over 200,000 AAR customers across the country will not have to spend too much time in hospital or shopping around for medication as they can simply order via their phone and the medication delivered to their doorstep.
One will simply be needed to send photos of original prescription and claim form to CheckUps via WhatsApp number 0703665191 or log in to MyDawa website or app, upload the original prescription and then follow the prompts.
AAR Insurance Kenya Managing Director, Nixon Shigoli, says the medical insurer understands that its customers need to adhere to Covid-19 health guidelines which include staying indoors and working from home.
“We want to make it easier for all our clients to comply with the health guidelines especially those with chronic conditions who are at higher risk of contracting Covid-19. We are encouraging our customers to use these apps to get their medication and limit trips to the hospital and chemist shops,” said Mr. Shigoli.
Health experts have caution that persons with underlying conditions like diabetes, cancer, hypertension, HIV/Aids and other co-morbid illnesses are at a higher risk of being infected with Covid-19.
