Have you ever thought about joining medical aid? Then you realise, it requires a lot of effort, forms to fill in, copies of ID and a whole list of things?
Now here’s the good news, at Maisha Health Fund we offer you an easy, fast and simple way to register for medical aid on your phone. You can register for yourself or your whole family in simple steps. The service is available to citizens of all walks of life, anywhere in Zimbabwe. You can now register as an individual or add your family (dependants) by simply dialling the USSD code *147# on any mobile phone.
In light of the current Covid19 pandemic, we care about your safety and have added this service to give health access through paperless, digital solutions that minimise cost and movement. Speaking at the launch our Cassava Smartech Group CEO Mr Eddie Chibi pronounced commitment to continuously innovate and enhance the livelihood of every Zimbabwean. “We are faced with a health access challenge in the new normal and this *147# USSD platform will curb the hassles of filling in forms especially for the marginalised members of our population. As a group we always want to serve where the need is greatest and through such innovations we are pushing for affordable access to health care using technology,” he added.
Maisha Health Fund Managing Director, Mrs Hazel Banza echoed that members will access a wide range of packages. “The *147# USSD platform will give customers access to the existing Maisha Health Fund Medical Aid packages which start from as low as 8USD per month or equivalent in RTGS value”.
There are 6 packages that one can register for individually or add dependents and get covered as a family. Once they register, they will receive a medical aid number which they can go with to their nearest health services provider to access healthcare services and also do a biometric registration. That way one will not need to fill in forms or move around with a card to verify their medical aid membership.
Our medical aid membership consists of several corporates, individuals, schools, Universities and other tertiary institutions nationwide. They enjoy access to a wide network of Doctors, clinics, hospitals, pharmacies, and labs nationwide. Additional benefits for members include free technology enabled consultation at Maisha Telehealth Centres or on Maisha Medik App, free prescription drugs delivery using Vaya Express, Maisha health tips, burial assistance and more. All these benefits have been abled through group synergies within the Cassava Smartech business.
