Launch of Social Security Project by OFATMA

On Monday, September 21, 2015, Dr. Max Rudolph Saint-Albin, the Director General of OFATMA (Insurance Office of Industrial Occupational Accidents, Sickness and Maternity) during a press conference, has reported the progress and advancement of his institution. He took the opportunity to announce about a social security project and his organization's plan to rationalize the insurance sector so that it can bring more people under the insurance umbrella.


Out of the total, about half a million insured in Haiti, the number of insured under OFATMA is about 80,000 officers from the Public sector. OFATMA is presently partnered in Haiti with 44 hospitals, 124 doctors, funeral homes and pharmacies. Although accident insurance to the industries under cover is mandatory, but sickness and maternity benefit covers are optional. The emergency care covers provided through OFATMA partners are free of charges provided it is claimed honestly.
