Kuppet say new medical scheme of service limiting and discriminative

17 March 2016, 14:43 Geoffrey Kimagut

Narok - Teachers have termed the medical scheme of service that was introduced recently by the Teachers Service Commission as discriminating and limiting.

Narok Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers Executive Secretary, Charles Ngeno now wants the scheme to be amended so that teachers who have polygamous families benefit from it.

Speaking yesterday in Narok town Ngeno faulted the scheme that is being provided by AoN Minet for having a condition that only one legal spouse for a teacher and four dependent children be covered by the scheme.

“We have taken exception of this condition that says only one legal spouse and four children are eligible. We have teachers who are polygamous and are legally recognized and should not be discriminated upon,” said Ngeno who added that a majority of teachers have more than four children.

While terming the scheme as expensive, Ngeno said teachers should benefit without such conditions being attached. He said NHIF which charges Sh320 per month cover more dependents as opposed to AoN Minet which took away teachers medical allowance.

“Now that we have been enrolled into this scheme we demand value of our money. We shall not accept to dig into our pockets again to pay for those children who are not covered,” he said.

The unionist also called on the provider to devolve the facilities that teachers can access this services to the location level.

He regretted that teachers especially in Narok are forced to travel to Narok and Kilgoris so as to access these services.

“Teachers should not be forced to travel for several kilometers in search of AoN Minet services. We demand that panel providers be made more so that teachers access the services with ease,” he said.

Last December the TSC enrolled all teachers as members of the AON Minet medical cover that was rolled out in July by the TSC.

Teachers were usually paid medical allowance which range from Sh900 to Sh4, 000.
