Do i qualify for GEMS ?

Home - Do I qualify?

Any government employeed person may join the Government Employee Medical Fund.

So wether you are a nurse, streetsweeper or sitting in administration, you qualify for a subsidy.

Do I have to join GEMS?

That depends. If you were appointed to work for the government before the first of July 2006, and have been a principal member of an open medical aid scheme since June 2006, then it is totally voluntary.

However, if you were appointed from the first of July 2006, then you will only receive a subsidy for joining the Government Employee Medical Fund.

What if I'm a Contract worker?

Yes you can, but only if your contract is for a period of more than 12 months.
