StartupCare Partners with Lalamove to Offer Free Medical Protection for Drivers to Get Through COVID-19 Pandemic

Hong Kong, August 10th 2020 – Fast-growing insurtech company StartupCare has partnered with on-demand delivery platform Lalamove to roll out the “DeliverSafer” campaign offering a 3-month free medical protection to their partner drivers in response to the COVID–19 pandemic. This campaign aims at easing the financial pressure of partner drivers against the unexpected during this difficult time.

 

The captioned free medical protection is underwritten by Generali Hong Kong, one of the world’s largest insurance and asset management providers, with a presence in over 50 countries. Lalamove’s partner drivers are eligible to enjoy 3-month free medical protection, including a lump sum cash benefit of HK$50,000 relating to COVID-19, and up to HK$1,000 daily cash benefit in the event of hospitalisation due to accident, in order to fully support driver partners in the fight against COVID-19.

 

Lalamove helps over 7 million customers to meet their delivery needs, it offers walkers and a vast array of vehicles such as motorcycles, vans and trucks for deliveries of almost anything of any size. The team has been serving the community with dedication and professionalism since the outbreak of the COVID-19 through distributing hygiene kits to the underprivileged and sustaining daily quality logistics services. As workers of the transportation sector are exposed to a relatively higher risk of infection than the others, Lalamove has especially formulated guidelines and distributed hygiene kits to its driver partners to safeguard their health. Considering health insurance plans on the market generally do not include additional insurance coverage related to COVID-19, flexi-workers such as drivers may not have sufficient protection during the pandemic. In view of this, StartupCare has collaborated with Lalamove to provide free medical protection for their driver partners to fight against the pandemic hand in hand.

 

StartupCare is committed to providing comprehensive employee health benefit solutions for local SMEs and startups. Its cutting-edge digital application comprises functions such as 24/7 virtual health assistant, doctor appointment scheduling and e-claim services that cater for the medical needs of employees. Together with value-added services such as meditation experiences, StartupCare aspires to provide the most comprehensive health protection for employees.

 

“StartupCare is honoured to cooperate with Lalamove to stand with their driver partners in the COVID-19 period. We are dedicated to enhancing employees’ health and wellness, and will continue to adhere to the principle of putting employees first by bringing a more delightful and human-centric health insurance experience to SMEs.” said Ying Wu, CEO of StartupCare.

 

“Demand of delivery services has significantly increased during the pandemic, Lalamove has been taking sufficient measures in protecting our driver partners. We are thankful to collaborate with StartupCare, in extending the benefits and protection for the team. This insurance protection is going to make their delivery journey safer.‘’ said Jeremy Tong, Managing Director of Lalamove Hong Kong.
