Policyholders of Ceylinco Life can now undergo radiation treatment for cancer for up to half the cost, as the life insurance leader passes on the benefit of its substantial investments in healthcare to its customers.
The owner of two state-of-the-art radiation treatment centres in Colombo, Ceylinco Life has announced that any policyholder who
has maintained his or her policy for three years or more will be entitled to a discount of 50 per cent at these facilities.
Other policyholders will enjoy a 25 per cent saving, the company said.
Valid up to 31st December 2014, this generous offer is also extended to any family members who are covered by Ceylinco Life policies, the company said.
“Although the cost of the radiation treatment we offer is significantly lower than the cost of undergoing treatment overseas, it can still be a heavy burden on a cancer patient and his or her family, “Ceylinco Life’s Managing Director/CEO R. Renganathan said. “Ceylinco Life looks at every opportunity to add value for policyholders and their families, and our investments in cancer treatment centres have given us another great opportunity to do so.”
The discounted radiation treatment offered to Ceylinco Life policyholders may be availed of at the Ceylinco Healthcare Centre which operates the first Linear Accelerator installed in Sri Lanka, and at the Ceylinco TomoTherapy Centre which commenced operations in October last year, and is the country’s only TomoTherapy treatment facility.
TomoTherapycan provide significantly more accurate radiation therapy for even the smallest tumours and reduce treatment times. It can be used to treat cancers all over the body, but is especially effective for paediatric cancers, head and neck, pancreatic, breast, anal and rectal cancers. Both radiation treatment centres are located at Park Street, Colombo 2 and are operated by Ceylinco Healthcare Services Limited,
a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ceylinco Life.
