THE Lautoka Seniors Association has successfully obtained discounts on medical bills for its 560 members.

Association president Pusp Raj said this good news was announced during the group's recent annual general meeting.

"We were able to get discounts from some Lautoka-based pharmacies and a medical practitioner who was kind enough to give members a 33 per cent discount," Mr Raj said.

"That means they will only pay $10 for each consultation and for eye treatments, the laser eye centre has agreed to reduce consultation charges from $30 to $20."

He said members would be able access these improved services by submitting IDs provided by the association.

Mr Raj said the group was attracting interest from senior citizens.

"The association was formed in 2012 with 67 members and currently, the membership stands at 560 and it is rapidly growing."

AGM chief guest Life Bread International director Dr Raymond Moti said the association was a forum where members could voice their opinions.
