Absa Bank Kenya has announced a partnership with AMREF Flying Doctors to provide its customers with the Maisha Medical Evacuation Plan Membership, which offers access to air and ground evacuation services in the event of a medical emergency. This partnership aims to offer customers and their loved ones unlimited, round-the-clock medical evacuation services at a discounted rate.

The scheme provides a discount of up to 20% on Maisha membership for both air and ground evacuation services. Customers will be able to self-register via a secure online portal and pay using their Absa debit or credit cards, providing additional relief in emergency situations.

According to Yusuf Omari, the Chief Finance Officer of Absa Bank Kenya, this partnership with AMREF Flying Doctors reflects the bank’s commitment to being there for its customers at all times. The partnership offers customers an opportunity to access medical evacuation services at a discounted rate, ensuring that their health and wellbeing are safeguarded.

On top of it, the premium level of membership gives customers access to air medical evacuations and up to US$200,000 of post-evacuation hospitalization benefits in Nairobi or South Africa, as well as return flights back home.

This partnership is an excellent move, according to Stephen Gitau, CEO of AMREF Flying Doctors, who encourages the bank’s clientele to sign up for the emergency medical evacuation plan, which comes in handy in dire situations. He also lauded the bank’s decision to offer customers direct access to their 24-hour control center for medical advice provided by qualified practitioners without going through third-party intermediaries.

The Maisha Medical Evacuation Plan Membership is an excellent offering for Absa Bank Kenya’s retail, SME, and corporate clients. This partnership reflects the bank’s commitment to delivering added value to its customers by safeguarding their financial wealth and health.
