Medical cover for public servants

Negotiations for a medical insurance scheme to cover government employees had already begun.

Department of Personnel Management Secretary John Kali said negotiation had already started with the Public Employees Association (PEA).

He said the parties also agreed that insurance cover for public servants will be resolved through an MoU for individual cover.

The parties encourage all public servants to take individual cover with PEA.

“PEA have a wonderful scheme running at the present time, we are fully supportive of and we are encouraging all the public servants who are not members of not PEA to join the scheme if they choose to become members of PEA that is there individual decision,” Kali said.
