Kenya: Lami have got you covered!
We’re proud to announce that we’ve renegotiated membership terms with our Kenya-based healthcare provider, Lami, to ensure that our Kenyan technologists receive more affordable premiums and faster access to healthcare! Rates have dropped, waiting periods have been waived and you can now create custom coverage plans!
Andela has brought Lami’s offering exclusively to our network of Andelans, so to take part in the healthcare scheme you’ll be required to pay for coverage yourself.
Lami and Andela have updated their agreement to include the following improvements:
- Premium rates are now anywhere from 6 to 23% lower than previous rates, depending on age bracket and number of dependents.
- Waiting periods have been waived.
- No co-payments at hospitals.
- Custom coverage plans.
- Higher dental/vision coverage included in all plans.
- Wellness program.
- Flexible payment options with up to 3 instalments.
Why should you consider healthcare cover as a Kenyan technologist?
Security and wellbeing: In addition to accessing meaningful employment opportunities, we all want to ensure the safety and wellbeing of ourselves and our loved ones. Health insurance protects you from the unexpected, so you can support yourself with a sense of security and well-being.
Success: Sound mind in a sound body! Healthcare cover takes care of your physical and mental health needs, so you can thrive in both your personal and work life. This can then help you succeed in a long-term working relationship with your team and organzation.
Financial Protection: Even if you’re young, it’s important to be prepared for any eventuality. With health insurance cover, you can plan for unforeseen health needs and ease the financial burden of high medical bills.
Andela: Putting our community first
We value our community members. From connecting them to exciting roles at some of the world’s best organizations, to offering support and guidance through their careers, we want technologists to feel valued and welcomed.
