Embark on a journey of planned health care management with Nakasero Hospital Health Card.
What is a Health Card?
This is a card given to a registered member as part of the incentive scheme where points are accumulated for future or immediate use every time a transaction is made.
The card is a replacement for carrying cash to the hospital for all your visits and will also enable you to save money for future hospital visits. All money deposited with the program is available to you for use within the hospital to access any service available.
We are currently running two schemes under this program, Individual Scheme and Family Scheme.
How does it work?
Registered members deposit money with the hospital and in exchange they are given a card reflecting the deposit made. Individual Scheme members are given only one free card and Family Scheme members are given two free cards. Any extra
cards desired by the members will be charged at;
One off card fee: UGX15,000
Annual extra fee: UGX18,000
We also accept different deposit options. There will not be an upper limit for any of the categories above.
How do I utilize the funds on the card?
Once any registered member falls sick, he/she can access the medical care upon presenting the Health card for verification at the front office. Once the treatment is received and deductions made, the card holder will receive a message detailing the transactions made, the balance and incentive received.
Who is eligible to register for this program?
Any person or family that would like to plan for current or future medical care with Nakasero Hospital.
Benefits of Having a Health card
