Why Medical Insurance?
Every thinking person in the Guernsey Bailiwick realises that medical insurance is a `must’ for individuals and families alike, ill health can strike anyone at any time or age without warning. Unless you and your family are members of a healthcare scheme, a serious illness can bring real financial hardship. If you or your child were ill, would you have to stop and think, ‘Can I afford a night visit?’ before getting the attention you or your child needed?.
Why a Friendly Society?
Having decided that it is only sensible to safeguard against medical accounts which scheme should you join of the many available? The first essential is to ensure that the scheme of your choice is operated by a non-profit making organisation, democratically controlled by the members themselves, that will give you full value for your hard earned money.
Why the Foresters?
Established in its present form as long ago as 1834, the A.O.F. is one of the largest and oldest established friendly societies.
This is strictly a non-profit making society, all funds being applied for the benefit of the membership.
