Day-to-day Extender Benefit: Extra benefits when you need it most

The Day-to-day Extender Benefit gives you full cover for day-to-day medical costs, like when you have spent your allocated yearly Medical Savings Account – and before you reach your Annual Threshold, if your plan has one.

Depending on the type of plan you chose, you have cover for GP consultation fees and kids casualty visits. These healthcare services are always paid in full when you use a provider in the GP Network who is on HealthID, even when your Medical Savings Account is used up.

This benefit is available only on plans with a Medical Savings Account (Executive, Comprehensive, Priority and Saver Plans) and is not available on Classic Comprehensive Zero MSA, Smart, Core and KeyCare plans.

What each plan covers:

*The Discovery Health plans that have Day-to-day Extender Benefit (DEB), need to use a general practitioner (GP) in the GP Network who is on HealthID, to access DEB. Claims are paid at 100% of the Discovery Health Rate (DHR).

Our list of network partners will make sure you are never charged more than the Discovery Health Rate. Check our MaPS tool to find a GP who is on HealthID. You can read more on the Day-to-day Extender Benefit here.
