Arpico Insurance PLC, a fully owned subsidiary of Richard Pieris & Company PLC, recently announced that it will take care of all medical and life claims relating to the life-threatening upper respiratory disease to help the country fight off the coronavirus menace.

Despite the disease being a global pandemic with insurance providers conventionally not covering medical expenses of this type, Arpico Insurance believes it’s an obligation and responsibility in these tough times to ensure sound health and well-being of every individual. The company’s strong re-insurance backing enabled it to take this quick decision, inspired by the Group Chairman Dr. Sena Yaddehige’s vision to serve all Sri Lankans in their hour of need.

Acting CEO of Arpico Insurance PLC, Harsha de Alwis said “We are facing a truly unprecedented situation. Our hearts go out to anyone who’s been impacted by the novel coronavirus, either directly or indirectly. We have been keeping a very close eye on the recommendations of the government and health authorities and we kindly ask everyone to follow their measures to come out of it stronger as a community.”

“We hope that you are taking care of yourself and everyone around you both physically and mentally. We’re called upon to be our best selves, with patience, understanding and compassion,” he said.
