Over 300 CCRP Members Eligible to Benefit from Major Medical Insurance Scheme

Effective May 1, over 300 CCRP (Caribbean Community of Retired Persons) members became eligible to benefit from the Sagicor-CCRP group health insurance plan. The group plan which offers major medical health insurance coverage to persons aged 50 and over, with no upper age limit, was designed by Sagicor Life exclusively for CCRP members.

The response to the plan, which was introduced to members last September at a meeting hosted by Sagicor, exceeded expectations as within the first month over 200 members had completed enrolment forms for submission. “We are delighted with this result,”said CCRP Director, Mike Fraser who had spearheaded the idea with collaborators at Sagicor Desmon Jangalee, Errol Morris and Clive Ebanks.

Mr. Fraser further commented, “Jamaicans in the 50+ age group continue to live healthy lifestyles and deserve to be able to preserve their health and fulfil their need for major medical interventions including hospitalisation and follow-up treatments”.

The Sagicor-CCRP Major Medical Plan offers Laboratory & X-Ray Services, Diagnostic Services, Hospitalisation Services & Surgical Benefits and Overseas Emergency Benefits up to J$5 million. There is a six-month waiting period before subscribers become eligible to access claims. The Plan is ongoing and open to all CCRP members.

CCRP Jamaica is a membership organisation for persons 50 and over retired or planning to retire. The organisation was launched in April 2010 with a mission to work towards ensuring that the vast talent, experience and wisdom of seniors are respected, and that they enjoy the quality of life which they so richly deserve.

Application forms to join the CCRP and also to enrol for the Sagicor-CCRP major medical group health insurance are available at the CCRP Office at 6 Kingsway, Kingston 10. Further information is available via telephone 876-926-6740 or 929-3454 or email [email protected].
