WHO CAN JOIN PULA….

Employees

Workers simply join through their employer by indicating their choice of preferred benefit option in the application form and adding dependents to their accounts by attaching supporting documents (birth certificates, marriage certificates, confirmation letters from school for children above 21 years). Our benefit options range from the most comprehensive (Executive) to the affordable out-patient cover (Flexi) giving employees a wide range of choice.

  • All employees of an employer (an employer could be: parastatals, institutions, organizations or societies  in the private sector, etcetera) qualify
