It is estimated that more than 250000 Namibians are employed but do not have access to private medical aid and is dependent on government medical services due to the high cost of private medical aid. As the largest open Fund in Namibia, Namibia Medical Care (NMC) with a membership base of more than 53644 beneficiaries, NMC realises that that there is a need for quality medical treatment at an affordable premium. As the leader in the private healthcare industry NMC has therefore extended their range of benefits to include a brand new option, namely Topaz and Topaz Plus. The implementation of the new benefit serves a twofold goal, namely to assist the government by lightening the load on governmental medical services and by providing more Namibians access to affordable, quality medical care.
Topaz and Topaz Plus provides for unlimited consultations with network nurses and general practitioners, as well as medication, pathology, radiology, dentistry, ultrasounds, HIV/AIDS treatment, hospitalisation and emergency road evacuation. Topaz premiums are from N$255 per main member, N$210 per adult dependent and N$80 per child dependent and Topaz Plus are from N$480 per main member, N$395 per adult dependant and N$140 per child dependant for employer groups.
“NMC is passionate about making a difference in the lives of the people living and operating in our local community which is why we are involved in projects such as the Mister Sister Initiative that brings health care to people in the rural areas, the annual NMC Walk for Wheels project where we raise awareness and have funded 67 wheelchairs for people who are in desperate need of them” said Topaz consultant, Florian Amulungu. NMC furthermore provide financial assistance through the NMC/Methealth Financial Assistance Trust to medical students to complete their studies and work in Namibia.
NMC said it is proud to extend its range of benefits to bring quality and accessible healthcare to more Namibians. “We invite the local business community to support our new option to reach the goal of ensuring that more people have access to medical care as every Namibian has the right to accessible, quality healthcare” the company said at the launch of the new medical aid fund options.  For the detailed benefits, or further information please contact Mr. Florian Amulungu at 081124897 or [email protected]
