SHAH ALAM, Nov 21 — The state government has ordered the State Audit Division to review Skim Insurans Am Selangor’s (Insan) implementation, which provides free group insurance coverage for Selangor’s residents.
Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said the review would take into account all matters arising regarding the implementation of the scheme, including the pre-registration process and violations of the Personal Data Protection Act 2010.
“The Selangor government has called for a more thorough state audit to protect the people.
“The (insurance protection) has been provided, but it has not reached the full amount (maybe) because the offer is not clear, the promotion is not good, and the digital method does not reach as many people as we hope it does,” he said.
Amirudin was responding to Sungai Panjang state assemblyman Mohd Razali Saari and Taman Medan state assemblyman Afif Bahardin’s queries on Insan’s implementation Selangor State Legislative Assembly session today.
Meanwhile, he said a total of 5,879,600 Selangor people had pre-registered for Insan as of September, and the state government has paid RM12 million through the Conventional Insan Scheme (provided by AmGeneral Insurance Berhad) and RM9 million through the Insan Takaful Scheme (provided by Takaful Ikhlas General Berhad).
Insan is a state government initiative that began on October 1 last year and is aimed at providing general insurance protection to six million eligible Selangor residents aged 30 days to 80 years old through the Conventional Insan Scheme and the Insan Takaful Scheme.
