Cimas Medical Aid Society has introduced three new foreign currency packages targeted at Zimbabweans with domestic Nostro accounts.
In a statement, Cimas said the packages enable beneficiaries to access health services with minimal short-falls or none at all.
The three new packages are Secure Essential, an entry level nostro package giving access to Group B private hospitals up to the benefit limit, Secure Private, targeted at middle tier managers, providing access to Group A private hospitals up to the benefit limit, and Secure Premium, a uniquely designed premium healthcare package suitable for successful business executives and entrepreneurs, covering private hospital access up to Group A hospitals.
“Membership contributions for the three new packages, dubbed Secure Packages will be paid from the member’s local nostro account. Claims will likewise be settled by payment into domestic nostro accounts.”
The new packages, the medical aid society said, bring to 13 the number of Cimas medical aid packages available.
Cimas already offers three Health guard International foreign currency packages which provide access to hospitals anywhere in Sub-Saharan Africa, including Zimbabwe, and India.
There are also four standard packages and three comprehensive packages, all of which provide for membership contributions and benefits in Zimbabwe dollars.
Cimas managing director, Martin Mushambadope, said the new packages were intended to give members a wider choice in their healthcare requirements.
“These new packages are local nostro packages aimed at members with access to domestic nostro funds,” he said.
“Claims settlement will be through domestic nostro accounts. The packages give access to both private and public healthcare institutions subject to the annual global limits and sub-limits applicable to the different packages.”
