AIRTELTIGO AND BIMA, a leading provider of mobile delivered health and insurance services, have, since the launch of AirtelTigo Insurance, paid 50,000 insurance claims worth GH¢22 million to insured families in the country.

Under this programme, AirtelTigo and BIMA offer AirtelTigo customers with simple and affordable insurance policies underwritten by Allianz Life Ghana and Prudential Life Ghana. 

With over two million Ghanaians covered under the insurance, the accessibility and affordability of AirtelTigo Insurance products has played a key role in helping more unbanked and uninsured get better financial protection.  

This reaffirms the partnership’s commitment to improving the consumer’s financial security.

Commenting on the milestone, BIMA Ghana’s Country Manager Damien Gueroult said, “We are proud of this milestone because the magnitude of the number demonstrates our commitment to helping families in challenging times. It also rewards our efforts in making the claims process quicker and simpler through the use of WhatsApp to receive documents and mobile money to send pay-outs.”

“AirtelTigo is constantly evolving to meet the changing needs of the consumer. By making insurance accessible through the ubiquitous mobile phone, the hassles involved in paperwork and claims have been reduced or eliminated. The landmark number of 50,000 paid claims has been achieved by the company’s “customer first” obsession and its quest to make the customer’s life simple,” said the Chief Executive Officer of AirtelTigo, Murthy Chaganti.

For his part, the Deputy Commissioner of the National Insurance Commission, Kofi Andoh, congratulated AirtelTigo, BIMA, Prudential Life and Allianz Life on their work in making insurance more accessible to Ghanaians.
