The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) is set to award a multibillion shilling medical scheme tender that will cater for its 318,000 tutors over the next three years.

In August, TSC issued a Sh9 billion tender for the provision of medical insurance for teachers up to 2022. The tender was advertised in local dailies and bidders were required to submit their proposals by August 29.

The lucrative contract has attracted several local insurance firms and health service providers who have formed consortiums.

Apart from having an established medical insurance firm, it is expected that the winning consortium will have a medical provider with the capacity to serve the huge TSC membership, including an extensive network of public and private hospitals.

The TSC has opted for four options with bidders expected to choose the option that fits them and TSC making the final decision.

As per the tender document seen by the Nation, the four are: Fully Insured Scheme, Hybrid Financing Model (inpatient, self-fund), Hybrid Financing Model (inpatient, fully insured) and Capitation Financing Model.
