MetLife Egypt has come up with an electronic card (eCards) initiative for medical insurance clients, offering a digital alternative to traditional plastic insurance cards, according to a press release posted on Zawya.  

This move is part of the company’s broader digital transformation strategy, aimed at improving customer service and reducing environmental impact.  

The eCards are accessible through the MetLife eServices mobile application, allowing policyholders to access medical services across the network of healthcare providers in Egypt. 

By eliminating the need for plastic cards, the initiative supports MetLife’s global strategy to reduce carbon emissions and minimise the use of paper and plastic, thereby reducing environmental pollution. 

This initiative also aims to improve operational efficiency and cut costs.  

Customers can obtain their eCard via the MetLife eServices app upon renewing their contracts, which will replace the conventional plastic card.
