Attention CINICO Members
We have received a number of enquiries regarding our Home Health Care (HHC) benefit and recognized that there were a few misconceptions of the exact extent of this benefit.
To be eligible for this benefit a member must complete an application form and qualify and adhere to the criteria below:
“Home Health Care Plan must meet these tests: it must be a formal written plan made by the patient’s attending Physician and approved by the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) which is reviewed at least every 180 days. It must state the diagnosis; it must certify that the Home Health Care is in place of hospital confinement; and it must specify the type and extent of Home Health Care required for the treatment of the patient.” - Summary Plan Document 2008
We also want to take this opportunity to reassure our members that his benefit has not changed and continue to be available to persons who qualify and are covered under our Civil Servants and Pensioners, Seafarers and Veterans and persons covered under the Indigent Plans.
Please note this benefit is not available on the SHIC Plans - (Affordable, Challenger and Silver).
