Advantages of Having A Medical Cover and Why Minet Has What You Need

Stats show that the number of Kenyans having an insurance cover is very low. This has been made worse by the misconceptions about insurance companies in Kenya.

Many Kenyans think having an insurance is a waste of time. Many believe, insurance companies were meant to steal from the gullible and enrich a few.

Stats show that many Kenyans who are on the medical cover are on the National Hospital and Insurance Fund (NHIF) and not because some of them want to but because it is mandatory for most employees to.

The major problem facing the insurance sector in Kenya is inadequate information about the advantages of insurance services such as medical covers. If there is any insurance cover that one should go for is a medical cover. Why?

  1. A medical cover helps you to save. With a medical cover, you will greatly save yourself and your family from spending too much on medical expenses when sickness comes knocking.
  2. A medical cover assures you of a promising future. You never know when sickness will come calling. With a medical cover, you are always assured that whatever happens to your health or that of loved ones, you will be catered for.
  3. A medical cover shields you and your loved ones from running into poverty due to expensive medical bills.

For teachers under the Teachers Service Commission, Minet is out to make sure that your health does not drive you and your family into poverty when diseases come your way. Minet knows that as a teacher, you have numerous responsibilities and they make sure that you do not have to worry about your health in the future, saving both cash and ensure happiness for your family.

To be eligible for the cover, you must be employed by the TSC. Teachers who are members of the TSC and are actively in service quality to be covered under the Minet Teachers’ Medical Scheme as Principal Members.

Some dependants including one legal spouse of the principal member and four unmarried biological or legally adopted children of up to 18 years of age, or 25 if they are enrolled in a tertiary institution, also qualify for the cover. Notably, no age limit applies to child dependents with a disability.
