Discovery Health Medical Scheme gives members a lifeline with Wellth Fund benefit

“This is of great concern and we encourage members to go for regular screenings again — especially now that the threat of severe Covid-19 has abated. It’s safer for people to head back to their healthcare providers for general health checks. To help encourage this, we’re launching the ‘WELLTH’ Fund.” 

What is the WELLTH Fund?

The Discovery Health Medical Scheme WELLTH Fund is a once-in-a-lifetime benefit that covers a comprehensive list of discretionary screening and preventive healthcare services for all scheme members, over and above those already covered by the screening and prevention benefit

“The WELTH Fund will enable members to understand their health status with a maximum provision of R10,000 per family to use for a range of screening services. With this understanding, members will better manage and improve the state of their health.”

The fund is available to all Discovery Health Scheme members and across all health plans for a maximum of two benefit years: January 1 2023 to December 31 2024. New members will automatically qualify for the fund when they join. Their benefit period will end on December 31 of the following year.

With Discovery Health’s new WELLTH Fund, preventive screening has never been easier, more accessible or more convenient. Now you can keep track of the whole family’s health status.

What health screening services will the WELTH Fund cover?

These include:

  • General health
  • Physical health
  • Mental wellbeing
  • Women’s health
  • Men’s health
  • Children’s health 

“Though for a limited time, the WELLTH Fund is a significant addition to our suite of benefits that is aimed at encouraging members to take better care of themselves and their loved ones. The adage, ‘prevention is better than cure’ is a reality for us all; one which we hope the WELLTH Fund will help serve members well.”
