For information about Discovery Primary Care for household employees read our brochure.

Household employees are employees who work in a private household, including cleaners and gardeners; drivers; people who take care of children, the aged, the sick, the frail or the disabled; and domestic workers employed by an employment service. Farm workers are not eligible.

The employee needs to be legally employed, a South African resident or have a valid work permit. Persons outside of this definition are not eligible to join Discovery Primary Care.

Discovery Primary Care is not a medical scheme. The cover is not the same as that of a medical scheme and is not intended to be a substitute for medical scheme membership.
