PAY FOR MEDICAL INSURANCE IN TIME TO GET GOOD SERVICE – MUKABARAMBA


May 3, 2017

The Minister of State in Charge of Social Affairs and Social Protection in the Ministry of Local Government, Dr. Mukabaramba Alvera, launched the medical insurance mobilization campaign generally known as “Mutuelle de sante’ month”.

 The official launch on the field took place in Kirehe District yesterday, and the day was marked by different activities and service provision including sensitization, payment, and membership cards validation.

Dr. Mukabaramba commended those who have already paid their contributions for the coming fiscal year, and she urged others also to pay in time to get quality service without delay.

The residents of Kirehe District were also commended for their big turn up and mobilization in the whole country, because the district ranked the 4th with 98% membership nationwide in payment of premiums for mutuelle de santé, fiscal year 2016/2017.

 The residents were reminded of the benefits of paying medical insurance in time.

Dr. Mukabaramba said: “You can't say health without mentioning medicine; and you can't say medical care without medical insurance. Paying medical insurance in time allows a patient to get treatment right away without awaiting 30 days of validating insurance card when they pay after June 2017.”

Dr. Mukabaramba requested the residents to use the same commitment they have for Mutuelle de Santé to also build the pit latrines in order to prevent diseases that may rise from lack of hygiene despite medical insurance they have.
