Rosemarie Genine, has two children and has been a mobile food vendor for twenty years, her husband Julius is a farmer.
In May, Rosemarie had an accident whilst doing some DIY work on their kitchen extension. A four-inch nail slipped and hit her right eye. Rosemarie went to the nearest hospital for treatment but was referred to another hospital in the city to be treated by a specialist eye doctor. She was advised by the doctors that unfortunately there was no way of saving the sight in her right eye. She was discharged from the hospital after seven days and had to return for follow up checks.
Hospital bills, cost of medicines and transportation have been a big burden for Rosemarie and her family. As the main breadwinner of the family, their income was significantly affected. The family had to borrow money from friends and relatives to settle bills.
The family were relieved when the Taytay sa Kauswagan Inc. (TSKI) branch where Rosemarie is a member, informed her that she qualified to make a claim for accidental dismemberment against both her Gold 2 and OKSure insurance policies. After submitting all the required documents, her claims for both products were approved. Rosemarie received a total benefit amount of Php115, 000 ($2150 USD).
The money helped her and her family pay their debts and fund their business again. She was also able to use some of the money for her children’s education.
Rosemarie took two months rest before going back on her daily routine of selling food. She might have lost her one eye but Rosemarie is very grateful that she’s still alive and can do her usual tasks. She really appreciates what insurance can do during tough times. Rosemarie said “Insurance made our recovery from these challenges easier.”
