Sehat.com.pk, an online pharmacy owned by the Fazal Din Family, and Takaful Pakistan, a leading insurance platform based out of Karachi, have joined hands to make healthcare more accessible to Pakistanis. The two recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding in Lahore to provide Takaful policyholders with the facility to purchase medicines through Sehat.
This marks a historic milestone in the pharmaceutical industry whereby patients all across Pakistan will be able to have medicines delivered to their homes, while paying through their insurance.
Takaful Pakistan has an extensive network of policyholders who can avail a variety of healthcare services ranging from doctor consultations to lab tests and medical procedures. Sehat has become their first pharmacy partner in their Health Insurance program.
The attendees for the ceremony were Sehat CEO Nadir Mumtaz, Sehat Director of Marketing Bilal Mumtaz, Takaful Head of Health Dr. Omair Saeed, and Takaful AVP Corporate Lahore Amjad Awan.
Dr. Omair Saeed remarked, “We as part of Takaful are certain that we can target Pakistanis of all socio-economic backgrounds to avail the wide variety of healthcare services that exist in the Takaful framework. We have already made leaps and bounds in the corporate sector, and hope to cater to the entire nation when it comes to their medical needs. Policyholders pay a minimal amount which can entitle them to a great amount of coverage. I feel this partnership can go a long way and will require the utmost of cooperation from both parties.”
Mr Nadir Mumtaz added, “We have been working with many different partners for the facilitation of medicine delivery to different parts of Pakistan. Our quality control is modeled after the best healthcare systems in the world, and we take pride in our service and the wonderful response it has received – we have shipped medicines to 268 cities since our inception. Sehat is already entrusted as a unique sale point for many sensitive medicines and we hope that this partnership can provide a service that can go hand-in-hand with an insurance platform – a partnership like this is bound to improve the quality of healthcare in Pakistan as a whole.”
