As many as 18 insurance companies will finance an additional call center for the Chief Sanitary Inspectorate (GIS). The organizer of the project is the Polish Chamber of Insurance (PIU) . This is another initiative of the insurance industry that supports people fighting the coronavirus on the front lines, and Poles struggling with the effects of the pandemic. Insurers will finance the work of 100 additional consultants for the next six months.
“Our social role is to help in the most difficult life situations. The pandemic is such a situation without a doubt. That is why we help and operate much more broadly than it would only result from the provisions of the insurance contracts. Help is needed in many dimensions. The insurance industry wants to contribute its share,” Jan Grzegorz Prądzyński, president of the board of the PIU, said.
The funds allocated by insurers for an additional call center for GIS help people suspected of or suffering from C-vid-19. The work of consultants will be organized in such a way that they are available to those in need 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 18 insurance companies took part in the project: Allianz, Aviva, Axa, Compensa, Credit Agricole Ubezpieczenia, Ergo Hestia, Generali, Interrisk, MetLife, PKO Ubezpieczenia, PZU Group, Saltus, TUW TUW, Uniqa, Unum, Vienna Life, Warta, and Wiener.
