Guyana: Over 900 nurses now covered

Nurses Association signs major insurance pact with Assuria

Assuria General Insurance and the Guyana Nurses Association signed a historic pact on Thursday that would see over 900 nurses having easy access to insurance coverage under various areas.

The agreement was signed at Assuria General Insurance Headquarters in Georgetown by the Managing Director of Assuria General Guyana, Yogindra Arjune, and President of the Guyana Nurses Association (GNA), Cleopatra Barkoye.

Under the agreement, registered members of the nursing association, totaling 930, will be provided with special rates to access Health Care, Dental Care, Vision Care, Life and Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance, Fire Insurance, Auto Insurance and Travel Insurance.

Nurses will receive preferred rates on all types of insurance, starting as low as $3,000 per month and will also be able to extend these benefits to their families as well. “This is our way of giving back to the hard-working nurses who spend so many hours caring for our families when we need them” Assuria General (Guyana) Managing Director said during the signing ceremony.

GNA’s President, while praising the deal, said the agreement is a significant step for the nurses association, particularly its members who continue to serve the people of Guyana. “We just celebrated 90 years of existence and this is the best reward we could have expected!”
