MINDEF issues measures to reduce its civilian and military personnel’s healthcare expenses

Paru le lundi, 17 mai 2021 14:50

On May 12, 2021, Defense Minister Joseph Beti Assomo signed a note consecrating the reduction of healthcare charges for the treatment offered to the civilian and military personnel, their spouses, and legitimate dependent children in military hospitals.

According to the note, general officers and their families (spouses and children) will henceforth receive a 20% discount; 30% for officers, 40% for non-commissioned officers, naval officers, and contractual civilian personnel. As for non-commissioned ADL officers and government employees, the discount is 50% while the annual medical checkup of morticians and air force personnel is fully subsidized.

Another memo signed by the Defense Minister the same day states that all civilian and military personnel are entitled to free medical checkups. It also entitles them to reductions only for diagnostic or therapeutic procedures (biology, medical imaging, physical therapy, instrumental or surgical procedures, etc.).

These measures aim to reduce healthcare expenses for the beneficiaries and their families (husbands, wives, and dependent legitimate children). The measures do not change the provisions relating to care for soldiers who get sick or injured during missions, Minister Joseph Beti Assomo explains.
