KUALA LUMPUR – Following the announcement by the insurance and takaful industry on expanding the eligibility criteria of the COVID-19 Test Fund (CTF) to include all individual/group MHIT policy/certificate holders who are asymptomatic in the country, the industry is now urging them to take the test voluntarily to curb the spread of the pandemic in the country, the Life Insurance Association of Malaysia (LIAM) said in a statement today.
“A number of medical facilities and private labs recognized by the Ministry of Health Malaysia (MOH) have also committed to participate in this initiative for COVID-19 testing done at their labs in the country,” said LIAM.
The prices are as low as RM150 for the Reverse Transcriptase – Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) and RM75 for the Rapid Test Antigen (RTK-Ag) tests. A list of labs committed towards this initiative is available on the MyCTF website.
The CTF will also reimburse policy/certificate holders who do their tests at other authorized labs or medical facility registered with MOH. Below are the links:

“We urge more Malaysians to come forward to do the test voluntarily. We hope to cover more people in the country so that the fund could be disbursed widely to benefit more people. We are expecting many more private medical facilities and labs to join this noble initiative,” said LIAM Chief Executive Officer, Mark O’Dell.
