The engagement is valid from 4 July 2022 till 31 December 2022, whereby policyholders for MSIG Hong Kong’s SME Group Medical Insurance can enjoy complimentary access to Intellect’s mental health platform. 

Mental health tech company Intellect has announced a tie-up with MSIG Insurance (Hong Kong), a member of the MS&AD Insurance Group, in an engagement that enables employee wellbeing support to the insurer’s medical clients in the HKSAR market.

The engagement is valid from 4 July 2022 till 31 December 2022, whereby applicants for MSIG Hong Kong’s SME Group Medical Insurance can enjoy complimentary access to Intellect’s mental health platform. This benefit is extended to all existing policyholders as well.

Philip Kent, Chief Executive Officer, MSIG Hong Kong, said: “The pandemic ushered in new levels of anxiety for many in Hong Kong, which is why it is so important that we, as a society, work to promote good mental health. We are delighted to be collaborating with Intellect on this initiative by offering free access to the Intellect platform to members of our SME Group Medical Insurance plans.”

Theodoric Chew, Co-founder & CEO of Intellect, added: "We live in a time where it's never been clearer that mental healthcare and support is strongly needed across Asia. We’re beyond proud to continue leading the conversation on mental health and expanding our presence with MSIG Hong Kong, to scale our offerings in Hong Kong and beyond."

The partnership is timely, given that mental health concerns in Hong Kong have been revealed to be further aggravated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Fear of contracting the virus, isolation from other people, and shifting daily routines have all contributed to several professionals developing symptoms of anxiety, depression, and other mental health disorders.

As such, Jonathan Cuevas, Head of Commercial at Intellect, shared: "We look forward to collaborating with the team to lower barriers to mental healthcare in Hong Kong and provide comprehensive employee mental healthcare."
