Affordability is at the center of this product with a carefully selected low-cost provider panel mainly encompassing mission hospitals and low-cost private hospitals.

How it Works

  • Product type: micro health insurance
  • The product allows members of a cooperative to enjoy a group cover on fairly priced group terms.
  • This is a medical product tailor-made for registered Cooperative members with a minimum membership of 10 principal members.
  • Once a Cooperative hit the threshold count of 10 principal members or more, the relevant Cooperative administrator verifies the details and submits to CIC for policy creation.
  • Once the registered members are verified and premium settled by the Cooperative, the member policies are activated and begin running at the start of the following month.
  • CoopCare Health insurance photo cards will be issued within 5 workings days on submission of full documentation from the Cooperative.
  • Where the threshold of the minimum number of 10 verified members isn’t met or payment from the Cooperative isn’t received, the members are pushed to the next month for verification and activation of their policies.
