Registration and claims processes for the mySalam national health insurance scheme is open from 1 March, announced Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng this week. The insurance coverage under this scheme for the B40 low-income group commenced in 1 January 2019, whereas the website was officially launched on 26 February. 

Guan Eng assured that the online registration and claims process are easy for B40 recipients and family members to fill up online when involving personal information. "However, if they still face problems to register and make insurance claims, they can see us to resolve the problems," he said. 

The Finance Minister also revealed that claims under mySalam can be made at government hospitals and at agencies (to be announced on the website). Those who are are receiving treatment at any government hospital can apply, but approval is subject to the condition that they are low-income earners. Guan Eng added that there will be no limit to the amount of people in a family that can claim for the mySalam benefits.

However, those who have pre-existing conditions diagnosed prior to the commencement of the mySalam scheme will not be covered. Meanwhile, those without any medical conditions cannot pre-register but can be part of the scheme if they fall ill later. 

Earlier this year, Minister Lim Guan Eng announced the mySalam scheme which offers free health insurance coverage for eligible B40 citizens. The health insurance covers 36 critical diseases with a one-off payment of RM8,000 and daily payments as replacement income when hospitalised. About RM2bil was channeled into the mySalam trust fund through the cooperation of the government and Great Eastern Holdings, benefiting around 3.69mil households in the B40 group.
