A strategic partnership aims to provide affordable medical access to members of Papua New Guinea’s leading superannuation provider, nasfund.
Through the PIH-nasfund Healthcare Partnership, active nasfund contributors, and their beneficiaries can take advantage of discounts at the PIH Clinics in NCD, as well as the Lae International Hospital in Morobe province.
These include the following;
- 50% discount on GP consultation,
- 50% discount on Specialist consultation,
- 20% discount on laboratory and radiology services,
- 20% discount on total costs incurred for in-patients
- 10% discount on Pharmacy services
- Free Eye checks
- Free Dental checks
The agreement sealing this partnership was signed by CEO’s of both organizations, in Port Moresby today.
According to nasfund CEO Ian Tarutia, the partnership, which comes under the fund’s Membership Discount Program (MDP), aims to make healthcare more affordable to nasfund members, in these major centres, during these difficult times.
“2020 has been a year where the need for access to quality, affordable healthcare has become more evident. And as the leading superannuation provider in the country, we took it upon ourselves to ensure that we partner with a medical provider who can provide value added services for our members, the majority of who are in the private sector, and who reside in both NCD and Morobe provinces.
All our members have to do is to provide a valid nasfund membership card when accessing services at PIH in Port Moresby, and Lae International Hospital.
This is all part of adding value to our members especially when health and wellbeing is a focus for many of us at this time. In order for members to enjoy their wealth tomorrow, they must be healthy today. We take care of them today, so that they are ready for tomorrow.
We would like to thank the Management of PIH for coming on board through the nasfund MDP, and we look forward to a long partnership, for the benefit of our members.”
Launched today, the PIH-nasfund Healthcare Partnership will run for six months.
