NOTICE TO ALL MEMBERS: SAMWUMED REMAINS OPEN FOR BUSINESS

Dear Members and Service Providers,

We are aware of the media articles regarding SAMWU (the Union’s) financial challenges. SAMWUMED (the Scheme) is financially healthy & continues to pay claims.

SAMWUMED is a separate entity, with its own bank accounts and financials to that of the union.  We therefore confirm that SAMWUMED is financially stable and focused on its mandate to provide medical aid coverage to its members.

We thank you for your continued support.

Kind Regards,

SAMWUMED

SAMWUMED CURATORSHIP COURT ORDER MAY 2018

 SAMWUMED CURATORSHIP COURT ORDER

09 May 2018: The Western Cape Division of the High Court in Cape Town has on 3rd May 2018, placed the South African Municipal Workers Union Medical Aid Scheme (SAMWUMED) under provisional curatorship following a successful application by the acting Registrar of the Council for Medical Schemes (CMS), in terms of Section 56(1) of the Medical Schemes Act, No. 131 of 1998 (the MS Act), and Section 5(1) and (2) of the Financial Institutions (Protection of Funds) Act 28 of 2001b (the FI Act).

As a result, Acting Judge P Andrews ordered that Ms. Duduza Khosana be appointed as Provisional Curator for SAMWUMED. She assumes all powers previously vested in the Board of Trustees and Management of SAMWUMED in managing the affairs of the Scheme.

The Scheme’s priority remains quality service in the interest of its members.

As members of SAMWUMED, you are assured that the curatorship will have no adverse impact on your medical aid membership with SAMWUMED. All benefits and valid claims will be honoured per the Scheme Rules.
