Be proactive about your wellbeing by completing all your recommended health checks and knowing your numbers.
The Health Check is a simple and convenient set of important health screening and preventative tests that can be done in just 30 minutes. Regular health checks will give you the knowledge and necessary steps to manage your health and enjoy a healthier future.
The Health Check is made up of the following screenings:
- Blood pressure
- Blood glucose
- Body mass index (BMI)
Your cover for the Health Check
As a member of Discovery Health Medical Scheme, you are covered for one Health Check per year at a wellness provider in our network. We pay for the Health Check from your Screening and Prevention Benefit. This means it won’t affect your day-to-day benefits.
Enjoy weekly rewards for achieving your health goals
By completing your Health Check, you may also qualify for personalised health goals on Vitality Active Rewards, even if you’re not a Vitality member.
Track and improve your health by achieving health goals tailored to your unique personal health profile and get rewarded. Use your reward points to enjoy treats like discounted coffees and smoothies, or accumulate them to spend on bigger rewards at popular retailers.
So, who qualifies for health goals
- Any Discovery Health Medical Scheme (DHMS) member already registered on the Chronic Illness benefit for diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidaemia or ischemic heart disease can sign up on their Discovery app.
- All DHMS members with an elevated risk of diabetes, heart disease or certain other chronic conditions are also eligible for Health goals – but you’ll only know if you fit into this category by doing a Health Check.
The Discovery Health Medical Scheme is an independent non-profit entity governed by the Medical Schemes Act, and regulated by the Council for Medical Schemes. It is administered by a separate company, Discovery Health (Pty) Ltd, an authorised financial services provider.
Welcome to your new, personal health goals and rewards, will soon be available on the Discovery app. Your health insights are about to get more personal - and rewarding!
