Your Henner Online Account allows you to follow your claims history, track any reimbursements and locate appropriate healthcare professionals within the Henner network. Plus you can download forms and submit claims.

WHAT AM I COVERED FOR?

Which documents do I need to refer to?

Your Certificate of Insurance clearly sets out the cover you have purchased. For each person covered on your policy the certificate specifies the plan (Elite or Primary), the programme (Essential, Balanced, Best), the area of cover (Africa and India or Worldwide excluding the USA) and any deductible you may have chosen.

Please refer to the Membership Guide for a detailed explanation of what is and what isn’t covered under AWS.

Are chronic conditions covered?

Yes, AWS provides cover for chronic conditions – please see the Table of Benefits for full details.

Are hazardous pursuits covered?

AWS cover is not restricted if you take part in hazardous pursuits, such as, for example, mountaineering. Professional sports are however excluded. Please refer to the Membership Guide for a full list of exclusions on the policy.

Are my pre-existing medical conditions covered?

This depends on how you have been underwritten. Please refer to your Certificate of Insurance which will clearly state if any pre-existing conditions have been excluded from cover.

HOW TO CLAIM

Who manages my claim?

Henner is the claims and provider management partner for your AWS plan.

Henner has developed unique expertise in the administration of benefit plans. Presently it administers claims for insured members in 190 countries for clients such the African Development Bank, the European Investment Bank and OECD. It has locations around the world including Nairobi.

Henner’s advisers are highly knowledgeable about your healthcare plan and they are available 24/7 to answer questions about any claims for treatment.

Who manages emergency medical transfers and evacuation?

Emergency medical transfers and evacuations are included on all AWS plans. When appropriate medical facilities aren’t available locally, we use Amref Flying Doctors or Allianz Global Assistance to arrange patient transfers on our behalf; both organisations are used to working in high-pressure situations and there’s nobody we’d trust more to look after our customers.

When do I contact Henner?

If you need to find an appropriate consultant, make a claim or arrange reimbursement of medical expenses, simply call the Henner Client Services Team on +254 709 992 001/2/3 and an expert adviser will be happy to help. Alternatively you can email the team on [email protected]

Where can I get treated?

You can get treated by any qualified medical practitioner and at any recognised medical facility in your Area of Cover.

But to benefit from direct settlement of bills you must use a healthcare provider that is part of the Henner Medical Network which includes hospitals, medical centres, laboratories, radiology clinics, pharmacies and doctors.

What does Direct Settlement mean?

If you use a healthcare provider in the Henner Medical Network the provider is reimbursed directly by Henner, which means you do not need to pay the provider and seek reimbursement later.

How do I know which healthcare providers are part of the Henner Medical Network?

To find out more about the Henner Medical Network, visit www.henner.com or search for network providers in your Henner Online Account.

HOW TO CLAIM USING A PROVIDER IN THE HENNER MEDICAL NETWORK

How is treatment paid?

Providers in the Henner network are paid directly by Henner but you must pay the medical provider any additional charges not covered by your AWS plan.

How do I claim for emergency in-patient treatment?

For emergency hospitalisation you are covered for the first 48 hours. However, please update Henner within the first 48 hours of being admitted to hospital, so they can arrange to extend cover if necessary.

How do I claim for scheduled in-patient treatment?

For scheduled in-patient treatment you must apply for Prior Agreement from Henner. Download a Prior Agreement Form from your Henner Online Account and ask your treating Physician to complete and sign it. Then post or email the form to Henner. You will receive an email reply within 5 days of Henner receiving your request. Before receiving your treatment, show your AWS Membership Card and a photo ID to your medical provider.

How do I claim for out-patient treatment?

For out-patient treatment, before receiving your treatment, show your AWS Membership Card and a photo ID to your medical provider.

Where do I send a Prior Agreement Form?

Either by post in an envelope marked confidential and addressed to Henner, for the attention of the Medical Advisory Board, 14 boulevard du General Leclerc 92200 Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, or by e-mail directly to [email protected]

Alternatively, the document can be scanned and emailed to Henner via [email protected]

HOW TO CLAIM USING A PROVIDER NOT IN THE HENNER MEDICAL NETWORK

How is treatment paid?

For providers not in the Henner network you pay the provider and claim reimbursement from Henner.

How do I claim for emergency in-patient treatment?

For emergency hospitalisation you are covered for the first 48 hours. However, please update Henner within the first 48 hours of being admitted to hospital, so they can arrange to extend cover if necessary. The facility may not agree to direct settlement, in which case you will need to pay for your treatment and claim reimbursement.

How do I claim for scheduled in-patient treatment or out-patient treatment?

First download a Claim Form from your Henner Online Account and ask your treating Provider to complete and sign it. You need to sign the form too. You may claim your medical expenses by sending any documents by post. Alternatively upload the documents directly to your Henner Online Account but you must keep the original documents for 24 months and send them to us within 30 working days if requested. Correctly submitted claims are processed within 5 business days, excluding postal and transfer times.
