Coronavirus cover for Cimas members
CIMAS Medical Aid Society (Cimas) has announced it will provide any of its members who tests positive for Covid-19 with medical aid cover for subsequent treatment and clearance tests at the end of their treatment.
The cover, which is subject to the benefit levels provided for in the member’s medical aid package, includes admission to any hospital approved for Covid-19 patients, treatment in an intensive care unit within the hospital, all prescription drugs in and out of hospital and up to three clearance tests, in line with WHO guidelines.
Cimas Medical Aid Society managing director Martin Mushambadope said the society was providing the Covid-19 cover as part of its robust plan to ensure the safety of members.
“We have now taken steps to ensure that any of our members who test positive for Covid-19, regardless of the medical aid package they are on, are covered for hospital admission, intensive care, medication and any other procedures related to their Covid-19 treatment up to the benefit limits of their package,” Mushambadope said.
