HIV Treatment

HIV and AIDS can be a sensitive matter, whether one has the condition or not. Our skilled and professional consultants respect your right to privacy and will help you get access to clinically sound and cost-effective treatment for your individual case.

We will always deal with each case with complete confidentiality.

Designated service providers (DSPs) for HIV medicine

You can be assured of confidentiality at all times. You need to get your medicine from a DSP to avoid a 20% co-payment.

MedXpress is the designated service provider for HIV medicines for all members registered on the HIVCare Programme. Members on a Smart plan also have the option to use their selected designated network pharmacy (Clicks or Dis-Chem) for their HIV medicine.

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.
