IN response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the Premier Medical Aid Society has put in place measures to ensure business continuity without endangering the lives of its stakeholders.
The society has selected staff members to offer services from home in a bid to decongest the workplace in line with President Mnangagwa’s calls for the public to exercise social distancing.
All enquiries on membership and authorisations with immediate effect are to be done over the phone and for critical enquiries that require face to face management, the society has put in place measures that guarantee the safety of both the Society’s staff and its members.
In line with the standards set by the World Health Organisation, the society has set up basic COVID-19 screening at their entrances, hand sanitisers with the help of commissionaires, restriction of the use of elevators with a maximum of two people per lift.
In addition to that, the member facing the staff will be donning protective apparel including face masks and gloves.
The society has also undertaken to have educational posters to equip the public with information on COVID-19.
PSMAS has also established a medical advice line in their call centre to allow members to call in for assistance on COVID-19 issues and any other medical challenges.
