CfBT Brunei Group Medical Insurance

 

i. CfBT provides medical insurance cover for all full-time employees other than Brunei citizens (yellow/red identity card holders), who are covered by the government health care provision. CfBT also provides fully subsidised medical cover for all dependents however, this is subject to change as CfBT reviews insurance cost annually.
ii. Group Medical Cover is compulsory for all CfBT employees and dependents resident in Brunei. The policy is provided by AIA Co.Ltd, organised through BR-Nancy
iii. Due to recent changes to policy implemented by the Ministry of Health, children under the age of 12 are not necessarily entitled to free government healthcare. CfBT, therefore, extends its AIA Insurance Policy to all children under 12 at no additional cost. However, it is recommended you make government clinics or hospitals as your first port of call for medical care for this age group as the Insurance Policy is only a safety measure and the majority of children still enjoy free health care in government hospitals and clinics.
iv. Limit of indemnity: in addition to Room and Board benefit, B$50,000 per person per disability and in the aggregate per policy period.
v. B$5,000 per person for outpatient treatment in the aggregate per policy period
vi. The policy covers out-patient and in-patient treatments. An excess of B$300 per claim is applicable for out-patient treatment. The policy also includes 24 hour worldwide cover.
vii. Dependents over the age of 65 are not eligible to join the Group Medical Insurance scheme but CfBT will seek to source the best value insurance for the age group and will pay 50% of the premium.
