Day-to-day extender benefit

 
 
 
 

Available on the Executive, Comprehensive, Priority and Saver plans (except the Classic Smart Comprehensive Plan)

When you have spent your annual Medical Savings Account (MSA) allocation, we extend your day-to-day cover through the Day-to-day Extender Benefit (DEB) for essential healthcare services in our network.

The Day-to-day Extender Benefit covers video call consultations with a network GP using Discovery DrConnect, or pharmacy clinic consultations in our defined wellness network, supported virtually by a GP. You also have cover for face-to-face GP consultations with a network GP, when referred by either your DrConnect GP or the pharmacy clinic.

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