Registration Process 

Teachers/ Principal Members

All teachers in active service with Teachers’ Service Commission (TSC) are automatically eligible for cover. The principal member is, however, required to register themselves and their dependants.
The registration process is done in two steps:
Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) registration and biometric registration.
Ensure you have the below mandatory details:
• TSC Number
• ID Number

Principal Member Registration

Step by step Guide:

Step 1: Dial *865# from your Safaricom or Airtel mobile phone number
Step 2: Key in your TSC and National ID Numbers when prompted. The details will be verified against the AON Minet database.
Step 3: If successful, you will be prompted to enter your name (surname and other name), role and gender. Once done, you will receive a message confirming your
successful registration onto the scheme and a prompt to register dependants.

Dependants Registration

THE REGISTRATION PROCESS
Step 1: Dial *865# from your Safaricom or Airtel mobile phone number
Step 2: Select the dependant you wish to register, i.e. spouse or child
Step 3: Enter Date of Birth, full name, ID Number/Birth Certificate Number

If not successful, kindly contact AON Minet on their call centre hotline numbers for further assistance.

THE BIO-METRIC REGISTRATION PROCESS

Biometric Registration is carried out at the service provider’s premises. It follows the steps below:
Step 1: Present yourself at the service provider on their active panel (you can access the list of active providers by dialing *340#)
Step 2: Identify yourself or your dependant with the TSC number
Step 3: The service provider will generate an SMS that contains the One-Time-Pin (OTP), sent to the principal member’s mobile number
Step 4: You will present this OTP to the service provider representative to kickstart the fingerprint registration
Step 5: You will be requested to place your index finger and thumb on the biometric device and the impressions will be recorded against your membership record
NB: Children under 5 years of age will be registered under either the parent or an
appointed guardian.

HOW TO ACCESS MEDICAL SERVICES

Members of the Teachers’ Medical Scheme can access any of AON Minet service providers on the Company’s online panel countrywide. This list is accessible by dialling *340# from your Safaricom/Airtel line. Follow the on screen prompts to access the service you desire.

REFERRAL AND SPECIALIST SERVICES

Instances where a member may require referral/specialist services include:
1. Where the service sought cannot be accessed directly such as an x-ray, MRI, chemotherapy or specialised services such as gynae care, oncology, etc.
In this instance the member will visit a primary healthcare service provider who will issue a referral letter to the member allowing them to seek the service at a referral service provider within AON Minet’s panel.
2. Where the service provider is not contracted to give a particular service.
In this instance, the service provider will issue a referral letter to the member indicating the service they seek and the name of the service provider they are referring the member to.
