WEMAS has honoured its promise that it will be giving cash back to medical aid members who spend less than 25% of their annual premiums at every anniversary of their scheme.
The first beneficiary was Monica Chimbu who joined WEMAS on 1st June last year, in total trust that this new medical scheme would live up to its promises. Chimbu received MK194, 720 at a ceremonial event held in Blantyre on first June.
Chief Executive Officer, MacDonald Wella reiterated that this initiative was tailored to encourage its members to stay healthy by, among others, exercising, eating healthy foods and having their health conditions constantly checked to detect defects they might unknowingly have.
“This beneficiary joined us on June 1 last year with the trust that she would maintain good health in order to benefit from this cashback initiative,” he said.
“This should encourage others to sample our services at the same time encouraging them to stay healthy in order to benefit just like this first beneficiary has done.”
He added that the beneficiaries can opt to carry over the cashback into the next annual phase or opt to have it cashed.
The cashback was received by Chimbu’s daughters, Sheila and Thandi, who said their mother indeed encourages them to stay healthy in order to avoid visiting the hospital for ailments that would have been avoided.
“Our family really appreciates this scheme and going forward we shall maintain our staying healthy status, not just to earn the cashback guarantee but also to live longer,” Sheila said.
