AON Minet Suspends Dependants Due To The Following Reasons
Several teachers have received messages from AON Minet notifying them of suspensions of dependants.
The teachers insurance service provider, AON Minet, has suspended thousands of teachers dependants which include wife, or husband and children for lacking required documentation.
Teachers are allowed to register a husband or wife and upto to four children under the cover.
The message which was sent to one of the teachers read:
“Dear Naum Mwey, kindly note that Davans, Brenda, John and Megan listed as your dependants has been deactivated from the hospital system. Please contact us on 1528 or 0730604000 to avoid inconveniences while accessing cover. Upload documents via https://collaborationkenya.minet.com/tsc,”
According to AON Minet teachers’ dependants who have been suspended lack required documents that would serve as evidence. The teachers failed to upload documents for their dependants listing.
However the insurance officials say the teachers only need to upload required documents to support their dependants for them to be reinstated in the hospital system.
For spouse a teacher is required to upload the national ID card and a marriage certificate or a sworn affidavit in case of lack of a marriage certificate.
For children recently born a birth notification can be used. Teachers can upload birth certificates for older children. Those with eighteen years and above must be in colleges and universities to be supported and their college or university ID must be uploaded.
Early this month AON Minet issued new terms for its teachers and dependants seeking medical services in various facilities beginning 1st February 2022.
Among the new rules, AON Minet, which covers more than 300,000 teachers on Teachers Service Commission (TSC) payroll, said it will no longer use code verification in all facilities it listed instead insurer said it will use biometric verification for teachers and their dependants in its medical service providers to curb unethical practices.
Minet also said referrals will be through TSC offices, Bliss hospitals or referral and teaching hospitals if one needs a specialized check up.
