Mba­bane here we come!

Sunday Observer - - FEATURES -

We would like to thank the peo­ple of Mad­langem­p­isi, for their hos­pi­tal­ity dur­ing our visit totheir area last week. The visit was mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial as many peo­ple got to have their queries ad­dressed, signed up for new poli­cies, and paid their pre­mi­ums, while we were able to as­sess what our cus­tomers in the area needed from us. We are on the move again; from last week Thurs­day to end of Fe­bru­ary we will be sta­tioned at the Mba­bane Plaza, bring­ing all our in­sur­ance prod­ucts closer to the peo­ple again.We in­vite you to come pay us a visit so that you are in­formed about our lat­est in­sur­ance op­tions de­signed for you. Since we are bring­ing a func­tional of­fice, all ser­vices shall be of­fered in­clud­ing pol­icy up­take, up­grad­ing and more.

To en­sure fa­mil­iar­ity with our prod­ucts, we shall be run­ning re­fresher ar­ti­cles just to ad­vise on what so­lu­tions are avail­able for you best ben­e­fit. There is an ar­ray of prod­ucts to choose from in our port­fo­lio, th­ese in­clude Life Poli­cies, Fu­neral poli­cies, Health in­sur­ance prod­ucts, Le­galin­sur­ance and even loans.

We will ob­vi­ously not ad­dress ev­ery­thing in one sit­ting, so do watch this space ev­ery Sun­day for up­dates.

The prod­uct that is cur­rently fly­ing off the shelves the Stu­dent Med­i­cal Cover, as the new year has just started, fresh uni­ver­sity en­trants and con- tin­u­ing stu­dent, study­ing in South Africa are get­ting as­sis­tance with re­gards to the visa re­quire­ment through this cover.The Stu­dent Med­i­cal Cover is pro­vided by United Gen­eral In­sur­ance (UGI), is man­aged by En­ablemed in South Africa and en­dorsed by the Depart­ment of Home Af­fairs. The en­dorse­ment is as­sur­ance that it will be ac­cept­able to South African med­i­cal in­sti­tu­tions and mem­bers will get the ben­e­fit of a peace of mind while away from home.

To ac­cess it, an an­nual pre­mium of E3 700 must be paid up front. Proof of pay­ment must be sub­mit­ted with the ap­pli­ca­tion form, and th­ese must be ac­com­pa­nied by proof of ac­cep­tance of ap­pli­ca­tion to study by the ed­u­ca­tion fa­cil­ity.

Ben­e­fits for the Stu­dent Med­i­cal Cover in­clude GP con­sul­ta­tions, ac­cess to acute medicine, over-the-counter med­i­ca­tion, chronic con­di­tions screen­ing by GP an­nu­ally or when re­quested, and chronic con­di­tions cover. It also en­ables the stu­dent to ac­cess spe­cial­ist health­care, such as ma­ter­nity care, as well as ba­sic pathol­ogy and ra­di­ol­ogy. HIV and Aids are fully cov­ered. Phys­io­ther­apy, Oc­cu­pa­tional Ther­apy, Op­tom­e­try and ba­sic den­tistry (pre­ven­tions, fill­ings, and ex­trac­tions) are also cov­ered. Pre-ex­ist­ing con­di­tions are sub­ject to a wait­ing pe­riod of up to 12 months, while op­tom­e­try ben­e­fits are sub­ject to a wait­ing pe­riod of six months. We are look­ing for­ward to more and more stu­dents sign­ing up for this fan­tas­tic prod­uct as it will bring peace of mind to par­ents, know­ing that in the event of any med­i­cal emer­gency, their child is in good hands and will get all the nec­es­sary help. There is no need to wait un­til dis­as­ter strikes be­fore you start

look­ing around for the right med­i­cal cover for your child. There are still a few peo­ple that be­lieve in­sur­ance poli­cies are a waste of money, but not hav­ing med­i­cal in­sur­ance in place will see you hav­ing to un­nec­es­sar­ily cough up more in the event of ill­ness. Some­times lives are also lost be­cause of that re­ally grave over­sight be­cause some med­i­cal pro­ce­dures cost a lot, to a point where peo­ple some­times painfully opt to forego them for lack of funds, or pre­cious time is lost while they try to pool funds. The Stu­dent Med­i­cal Cover will en­sure you won’t ever have to jump through hoops to get med­i­cal at­ten­tion for your child.

Please do give us a call on 2505 2028 to find out more about the Stu­dent Med­i­cal Cover and all our our other prod­ucts. You can also send queries to info@dups­, www.face­ or on Twit­ter @dupsin­sur­ance or pay us a visit at our of­fices in Manzini, Matata, Mat­sapha, Simunye, Nh­langano, Mba­bane, Piggs Peak and Siteki.
