Andela and Acacia: Healthcare for technologists based in Ghana
As a technologist working in a fast-paced industry that demands hard work and dedication, you owe it to yourself to take care of your health and the well-being of your loved ones.
Good health is a state of physical, mental, and social well-being. Excellent physical and mental health enables you to perform to the best of your abilities in the workplace to excel in your career. And knowing your - and your family's - healthcare is covered can offer you both a sense of security and peace of mind.
We recently ran a webinar to answer important questions regarding this partnership. You can watch the webinar here.
We've partnered with Acacia to ensure that Ghanaian Andela Talent Network members can now benefit from health insurance through Andela. Acacia offers innovative products and benefit options that offer true value regarding health coverage. As the preferred health insurance company in Ghana, Acacia provides comprehensive healthcare for all its members, including hospital consultations, surgeries, dental care, prescribed drugs, and optical care.
We're bringing Acacia's health coverage exclusively to our network of Andelans based in Ghana, so to participate in the healthcare scheme, you'll be required to pay for coverage yourself.
With Acacia health coverage, you'll receive:
Monthly premiums* starting at GHS 120, with a one year commitment.
Inpatient care - GHS 30,000 - 100,000 per policy year**.
Outpatient care - GHS 3,000 - 10,000 per policy year**.
Coverage at a wide variety of hospitals and health care providers.
Dental care - GHS 400 - 1,200 per policy year**.
Optical Frames and Lenses - GHS 200 - 700 per policy year**.
No waiting periods to access health care.
1-year waiting period for maternity benefit.
*Anyone in the Andela Talent Network will be able to access the offering, it doesn't matter if you are on an active engagement or are still looking for one. **This is not a direct benefit Andela is covering; this is an offering brought exclusively to our network of Andelans. Andela contractors will be responsible for paying their premiums.
