‘MonAram’ app campaign flagged off in Kohima


A state-wide motorcycle campaign for the social impact initiative named “MonAram” was flagged off at department of Industries and Commerce (DIC) office premises, here on Friday.
In a short speech, Start-Up Nagaland, leader and assistant director, DIC, Keneirienuo Theünuo, said MonAram app was an innovative initiative which had the potential to provide healthcare services to many, as generally, people often overlooked the need to set aside money for healthcare purposes.
She disclosed that the idea for the start-up was pitched by SpeakGuru Foundation, a financial services manager which was one of the winners of the First Hackathon 2021 organised by DIC and EduCentre School of Business 2021.
Theünuo said with just an amount of Rs 500, a registered member would be eligible to get instant emergency treatment at any of the empanelled healthcare facilities.
She wished the company and the campaign team success in their endeavours and also hoped that the initiative would provide help to the people in the most efficient manner.
Brand ambassador of the MonAram app, Thejakielie Zuyie, in a brief remark said the initiative was not an insurance but a healthcare package provider designed specifically to cover accidental cases for its registered members.
As an immediate relief any registered member can avail healthcare facilities worth Rs 5,000 at any of the empanelled healthcare facilities in vehicle or any other domestic accidental cases and Rs 2,000 for cases of dental accident(s) which are not covered by other insurance companies.
In the unfortunate event of a fatal accident, the next of kin of the registered member would be eligible to receive a sum of Rs 50,000 as ex-gratia, he disclosed.
Registered members could download the app and on a fee of Rs 500, a unique QR Code would be allotted to them which could be used in the identification process when availing any help, he informed.
Zuyie said as brand ambassador of MonAram, he and his ride mate Pelevizo Meyase would embark on a state-wide campaign to all the districts and help in empanelment of various healthcare facilities across the state who would be able to provide medical assistance in times of need.
