GEMS has an effective HIV/AIDS Disease Management Programme (DMP) for our members. If you or one of your dependants is living with HIV/AIDS, registering on the HIV/AIDS DMP can give you the support you need to lead a healthy and productive life.
We take special care to maintain the confidentiality of GEMS members and dependants who are HIV positive and decide to join the HIV/AIDS Disease Management Programme (DMP). This programme is managed by a team of healthcare professionals separately from other Scheme programmes and the employer.
How do I register on the HIV/AIDS DMP?
Step 1: Patients who do not know their HIV status can ask their doctor or clinic to test them. GEMS will pay for this test and the doctor will be informed of the results.
Step 2: Patients who are HIV positive can download the application form or obtain one by calling 0860 4367 36 using the "please call me number" 083 843 6764 from Monday to Friday between 8am and 5pm and Saturday from 8am to 12pm or sending an email to email@example.com.
Step 3: Patients must visit their doctor who must examine them and complete an application form. Patients will need to sign the application form and submit it to GEMS.
Step 4: The completed form can be faxed to the confidential toll-free fax number 0800 436 7329 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 5: We will contact the patient to discuss the outcome of their application.
