Three of the largest medical aid funds in Namibia incurred N$ 4.46 million in expenses for the treatment of COVID-19 related hospital admissions by 13 August 2020, Namibia Financial Institutions Supervisory Authority Chief Executive Officer, Kenneth Matomola has said. Matomola was responding to questions by Nampa in an interview on Monday, but declined naming the medical aid funds, citing confidentiality. He said the N$ 4.46 million includes expenditure incurred for the treatment of other conditions the members were afflicted by whilst receiving treatment for COVID-19. Matomola also revealed that a total 719 members of the three medical aid funds were tested for COVID-19 at an aggregate cost of N$ 598 114 as at 13 August 2020, of which about 60 tested positive for COVID-19. He said that medical aid fund members will have access to the benefits they are entitled to as long as they have not depleted their available benefits.
