1 800 lose insurance coverage
MORE THAN 1 800 civil servants and retired public officers will be without medical insurance coverage at the end of the month.
Their medical insurance carrier, the Insurance Corporation of Barbados Limited (ICBL), has dropped the workers who are members of the NUPW Insurance Agent Inc. (NUPWIA)-managed plan and unless they can find another carrier in a hurry, would be forced to foot the cost of any medical care they require.
Officials of the trade union said they were notified by ICBL that it would not renew coverage of the medical plan when the group policy came up for renewal on May 22.
