Get external medical items

We extend members’ day-to-day cover through the Day-to-day Extender Benefit when they have spent their annual Medical Savings Account funds and before their claims add up to the Annual Threshold.

By simply using healthcare providers in our networks, members will have cover for:

  • GP consultations

This cover depends on the member’s chosen plan.

Preferred supplier network for durable external medical items

Through creating a preferred supplier network, the Scheme further helps all members who need durable medical appliances, such as wheelchairs, insulin pumps, walking frames and breathing devices.

Members who get these appliances from the preferred supplier network will be covered at an agreed rate with the supplier for specific external medical items (preferred items), from the Medical Savings Account or Above Threshold Benefit. This benefit is available to members on these plans:

  • Executive
  • Classic Comprehensive
  • Classic Delta Comprehensive
  • Essential Comprehensive
  • Essential Delta Comprehensive
  • Classic Priority
  • Essential Priority.

Members must contact suppliers directly for this benefit
