Our beneficiaries are also entitled to refunds for services rendered through laboratory tests,X-rays, surgery, ultra sounds, electrocardiographs or similar services, hospitalization and drugs. The MBS also provides financial, managerial and medical supplies to the local hospital and health clinics.
We have five convenient locations – the main pharmacy on Nevis Street, in the capital city St. John’s, and four satellite pharmacies. These are strategically placed at All Saints, Browne’s Avenue, Johnson’s Point, and Clare Hall. From these outlets, our professional and qualified staff service people suffering with the nine covered non-communicable diseases; namely; asthma, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, certified lunacy, diabetes, glaucoma, hypertension, leprosy, and sickle cell anemia. We also focus on preventative medicine, particularly through our School Outreach Programme which promotes proper nutrition and regular physical activity.
The policies and regulations of the Medical Benefits Scheme are governed by the Medical Benefits Act, Cap. 271. The services offered by the MBS are financed through mandatory deductions from the wages and salaries of employees in Antigua and Barbuda.
