Beneficiaries of the National Insurance Trust Fund (NITF)’s healthcare services will be eligible to seek treatment at any hospital under the Asiri Group of Hospitals following the recent signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the two organisations.
As a result of the MoU, the Asiri Group of Hospitals will be the preferred healthcare provider for the NITF, thereby enabling Government sector employees covered by the NITF’s health insurance scheme ‘Agrahara’, to seek quality private healthcare services and advanced medical facilities at discounted rate from any hospital in Asiri group or its laboratories.
With over two million State sector employees currently being registered under the program, NITF’s ‘Agrahara’ represents one of the single largest groups of health insurance beneficiaries in Sri Lanka.
Dr. Karunaratne said, “This agreement between Asiri Hospitals and the NITF represents a major step forward in our goal to be a total healthcare provider to the nation. By streamlining access to our state-of-the-art facilities and medical and surgical packages, we are confident that Asiri Group together with the NITF will be able to actively improve the quality of life of Sri Lankans across the island.”
The new agreement will enable NITF members to secure discounted rates on over 65 surgical packages available at Asiri Surgical Hospitals.
