Q: Why do I have to bring a verification slip or Seamen's Book when my husband is a member?
A: The above documents are used by the hospital to determine the embarkation and disembarkation date of the member to verify entitlement to the benefit.
Q: Why do I have to get a number while waiting for the doctor? I'm a member-shouldn't priority be given to me?
A: Our doctors are professionals and practice in other leading hospitals. Their time at the Seamen's Hospital is limited. Thus we serve all patients, whether member or dependent, on a first come, first served basis.
Q: Why do we have to submit marriage contracts & birth certificates with registry numbers?
A: The Hospital wants to extend its quality service to the true legal dependents of its members. To do this, it needs to verify the legality of the marriage contracts and birth certificates to prevent the unauthorized use of the benefits
Q: Why are members and dependents entitled to medical and dental services only when a member is active and for six months thereafter?
A: It is only while you are on board a vessel covered by an AMOSUP CBA that the shipowner is required to contribute to the funds that help run the Hospital entitling you and your dependents to the benefits. The benefit is extended up to six months after date of disembarkation. top^
