The first of its kind in the industry, this policy will act as a safety net for people in the event of hospitalization due to dengue fever. 


Fairfirst is the undisputed market leader in medical insurance in Sri Lanka. This is manifested in the Fairfirst medical team being awarded the Excellence in Medical Insurance Award by Fintelekt at the recently held Insurance Industry Awards. Fairfirst won this award in 2016. This is therefore, the second time Fairfirst Insurance is winning this award. 


“This is a product we began working on as soon as the dengue outbreak took place. We felt that it was part of our responsibility as an insurance provider to cater to the need of the hour,” said Surgical Insurance Head Thushara Edirisooriya. “We are proud of what we have been able achieve and will continue to address the growing needs of the people.” 


The Fairfirst dengue policy covers all hospitalization expenses incurred due to dengue fever and also provides a per day cash allowance for treatments at governments hospitals. What makes this cover so relevant are features like the cashless facility, fixed premium regardless of the age group, lifelong renewal and the cover extension for the insured’s family members. 


Providing protection for employees of large corporates and individuals alike, Fairfirst is today, among the top general insurance companies of Sri Lanka. 


This company is backed by of one of the largest property and casualty insurers of the world – Fairfax, and they have operations spread across geographies. 


“Our hard working medical team continues to excel at what they do best, which is timely servicing of customers and responding to their needs,” stated Fairfirst Insurance CEO and Managing Director Dr. Sanjeev Jha.
