MAPFRE Insular provides comprehensive coverage to overseas Filipino workers as required under the Compulsory Insurance for Agency Hired Migrant Workers as approved under Section 23 of R.A. 10022 and creates online community that serves as a unifying communication platform with OFWs all over the world.
Compulsory Insurance for Migrant Workers
Section 23 of R.A. 10022 mandates recruitment and manning agencies to provide OFWs with compulsory insurance at no cost to the worker. The Compulsory Insurance for Agency Hired Migrant Worker aims to ensure that OFWs get the right protection they deserve. It also promotes and supports the workers’ fundamental rights and welfare.
MAPFRE Insular’s Compulsory Insurance Coverage for Agency-Hired Migrant Workers is a comprehensive insurance package that is set to address the needs of Filipino Migrant Workers. The very nature of accidents is that they are unexpected, but with MAPFRE Insular’s insurance package, OFWs are protected from heavy financial burden in the event of an emergency.
The comprehensive package provides OFWs with assistance for Repatriation in case of termination of employment or death; Subsistence Allowance for OFWs involved in a case or litigation; Legitimate Money Claims Insurance or money claims arising from employer’s liability; Compassionate Visit in case of OFWs hospital confinement, Medical Evacuation Insurance in case of inadequate medical facility in the area of work; and Medical Repatriation Insurance in case an OFW needs to be transported back to his country of origin as deemed necessary by medical workers.
“Our service considers financial security of our modern heroes and their family as our top priority, which is why we made sure that our insurance coverage for our OFWs will be truly beneficial,” says Tirso Abad, president and CEO of MAPFRE Insular Philippines.
