Cover for treatment for HIV/Aids

There is unlimited cover for HIV/Aids treatment and preventative medicine.
To qualify for this benefit, members must be registered on the scheme’s HIV/Aids disease management programme, Aid for Aids (AfA). Members only have access to the HIV/Aids medicine benefit when they are registered.
AfA is a comprehensive HIV disease management programme with access to:

  • anti-retrovirals and related medicines
  • post-exposure preventative medicine
  • preventative medicine for mother-to-child transmission
  • post-exposure preventative medicine after rape.

The programme gives ongoing patient support and monitors the disease and response to therapy. Your employee can join AfA by calling them in confidence on 0860 100 646. Your employee’s doctor can also call AfA on his/her behalf.
