Apollo Munich offers insurance renewal discount to walkers

To avail the 'Stay Active' benefit, customers just need to download its newly launched 'Health Jinn' app on their Apple or Android mobile phones from the application store.


Apollo Munich Health Insurance today announced an offer that would enable its policyholders to earn a discount of up to 8 percent on renewal premium depending on the distance one walks during a year.


To avail the 'Stay Active' benefit, customers just need to download its newly launched 'Health Jinn' app on their Apple or Android mobile phones from the application store.


"'Health Jinn' app will simply count the number of steps one walks, and accordingly reward the policyholders with 2, 5 or 8 percent renewal discount," Apollo Munich Health Insurance Chief Executive Officer Antony Jacob said.


In order to help more people lead healthier lives, Apollo Munich is engaging its customers with this app and a renewal discount rewarding helps them take more steps towards a fitter future.


The idea of 'Stay Active' was formed as a result of an indepth research amongst health insurance policyholders and those interested in purchasing health insurance, along with Nielsen India Pvt Ltd in 19 cities, he said.


The research revealed that almost 80 percent of respondents are fearful of health issues in the future and hence are keen to get fit, but seek simple ways to do so.


The benefit has been designed keeping in mind that walking is the easiest and the most effective form of exercise to remain active and healthy.

Hence, policyholders of revised Optima Restore and Easy Health can now earn up to 8 percent renewal discount simply by walking, he added.
