Your Health Insurance with POMAS
We are writing to you about the General Data Protection Regulation (‘the GDPR’) which comes into effect on the 25th May 2018. The GDPR applies across the European Union (EU) and aims to give individuals more rights, control and understanding of how their personal data is processed.
We have always appreciated your trust in us to collect, process and protect your personal information and we will continue to look after your information in a way that merits your trust.
The GDPR will have no impact on the cover we provide to you. It does however require us to keep you informed of the following:
✓The types of data we hold on you;
✓The purpose it is used for; and
✓Your rights in relation to how it is processed.
You will find all of this information in the Data Security & Privacy Notice here. This Statement is applicable to all dependants insured on your policy, so we would ask you to share it with them.
There is no need for you to do anything, we just wanted to inform you on the impending GDPR changes and re-assure you we are committed to investing and managing your Health Insurance within a GDPR compliant environment & of course provide you with fair transparent cover designed to suit you and your family’s needs.

Welcome to the new Prison Officers’ Medical Aid Website.
The website has been updated to work with our new claims processing software system. You can get all of the same information from the site as before. Now, however, you will also be able to print off your claims history and update your contact information on our database. From 2015 onwards, the claims history that you can print will be valid as a statement of your benefits for claiming medical expenses, income tax relief.
Since this is a new website, all members will have to re-register to gain access.
To verify that you are the correct user of the account you will be asked to provide your member number, your date of birth and your PPS number to see that they match the details we have here.
For serving members, your member number is your staff number with a zero at the start of it and including the letter i.e. 01234A.
For retired members, your member number is your personnel number.
