A new deal.
That’s the assurance from the president of BARP, Marilyn Rice-Bowen to its members enrolled in its comprehensive health plan.
BARP has reached an agreement with Lynch Insurance Brokers which goes into effect from November 28th 2020 which will allow thousands of 50+ plus members of BARP to continue to benefit from affordable coverage.
BARP’s president Marilyn Rice Bowen said of the new arrangement, “our members' welfare is paramount to us at BARP.”
There will be no disruption for members of the plan and there will be opportunities for BARP members who are not enrolled to join the plan which offers significant medical benefits.
BARP thanks Gallagher Insurance for having served as its broker. That arrangement ends on November 27th 2020.
Lynch Insurance Brokers is the largest such operation in Barbados and has a reputation as being a strong business with many years of experience in the industry.
BARP which was established 25 years ago has a membership of 26 000.

Are you a BARP member 70 years or older and still driving?
Well, if you are, here’s some good news for you.
BARP has teamed up with Urgent Care Mobile to offer annual medical examinations for those who need physicals to get their driver’s license renewed.
These medical checks which should last approximately 20 minutes will be held every Wednesday and only by appointment. They will be done by Urgent Care in its mobile facility at BARP’s Mervue, Hastings, Christ Church headquarters.
What’s also noteworthy about this new service is that it is coming at a highly discounted cost of $50 to BARP members.
Well don’t delay, call Urgent Care at 538 3838 and set up your appointment, to make use of this new service for BARP members.
There are additional big benefits to this medical check-up being offered to BARP’s 70 and over age group.
Managing Director of Urgent Care Mobile, Dr Bandele Majeks said,” I find that doing these medicals give us the opportunity to pick up on subtle changes that are happening with your body over time.”
Under the partnership, the seniors will receive a general examination, coordination and balance, visual and hearing tests, and they will be immediately issued with their medical certificate.
BARP is listening and responding to the concerns of its members which is why it has promoted this initiative. President Marilyn Rice Bowen is promising BARP will be lobbying for more benefits for its members over 70 who are still driving.
