The Incentive Option

Savvy consumers opt for Momentum’s Incentive Option because it provides unlimited hospital cover. With no overall annual limit, members have the option to use any private hospital. However, the incentive of this medical plan is that by opting to use a Momentum network hospital they will receive a discount on their monthly policy contributions. The same principle applies to chronic treatment and medication. Members can select any doctor or use any pharmacy but, if they stick to Momentum’s network of service providers, they qualify for further discounts on their monthly premium payments.

Maximum incentive benefits

To receive maximum premium discounts, members who use State facilities for their chronic health needs receive the highest premium rebates. Apart from a range of benefits including screening tests and prescribed check-ups, 10% of their contributions are channelled into a Personal Medical Savings Account to cover day-to-day healthcare expenses.

Chronic benefits

The policy covers 32 conditions, 26 of which are on the Chronic Disease List of Prescribed Minimum Benefits. There are no annual limits on the PMB listed chronic conditions. The additional six chronic conditions are limited to an annual expenditure of R9,300 per family.

The Summit Option

Although we have highlighted Momentum’s most affordable medical plans, the Summit Option is its top-of-the-range product, offering fully comprehensive healthcare benefits.

Clients can use any private hospital and have the freedom of choice when it comes to their chronic and day-to-day healthcare needs.
