From 1 October to 31 December 2020, we are granting a once-off group concession for your clients at existing corporate groups to join the Scheme without risk underwriting.
This voluntary open window period will be available to any existing, active employee who submits a completed and signed application form during the year-end period. No waiting period will be imposed on employees joining Bestmed during this period, including those moving from another medical scheme to Bestmed.
The window period will also be available to current Bestmed members who apply to have their immediate dependants registered with the Scheme.
Normal risk underwriting in accordance with Scheme Rules will be applicable after the concession period as stipulated in our Risk Underwriting Policy. We will, however, evaluate every application made after 90 days from the date of permanent appointment, marriage or divorce for a final risk underwriting decision.
Please remember that our dedicated Key Account Consultants and Business Consultants can assist you with year-end presentations, servicing, etc. to supplement your own capacity. Also, if you are aware of corporates that are searching for alternative or supplementary Schemes, our doors are wide open.
Please do not hesitate to speak with your Business Consultant should you need any information, assistance, or collateral.
