Discovery Health's KeyCare Plan - the most popular, affordable medical aid option.

Premiums are based upon your income!

  • Do you wish you could afford medical aid, but find that it is just too expensive and complicated?
  • Are the more comprehensive plans way too expensive for you?
  • Is a basic hospital plan – without out of hospital cover – still more than you can afford?
  • And what if you need to see a doctor, not just hospital?
  • Do you need a medical aid where you can see the doctor as often as needed?
  • And do you want a plan that is easy to use?
  • That has no need to manage a complicated medical savings account when it comes to paying costs?
  • If you answered yes, here is the healthcare plan for you!

    keycare plusDiscovery Health's KEYCARE PLAN is South Africa's most popular, low-cost medical plan.

    In fact, it is bigger than some total medical aids. There must be a reason for that!
    With more than 400,000 beneficiaries – you’re in good company when you join.

    KeyCare is a network plan.

    That means that you are required to use private hospitals (in the KeyCare network of hospitals) and day-to-day providers (including GP's specialists and gynaecologists), who are linked to the scheme.

    By accepting this, you get a discounted premium!

    You get, unlimited hospitalisation, casualty benefit, GP visits, prescribed medicines and basic dentistry, optical and preventive screening tests and flu vaccines benefits!

    It is easy to understand and use, especially for those who are joining a medical scheme for the first time and don’t really understand the more complicated plans.

    KeyCare is different from all the other Discovery Health plans, designed to help those who earn a lower income have access to quality healthcare at a very affordable premiums.

    Your premium is based on your income, so the same benefits apply for every member - irrespective of your earning ability!

    You use the highest income of either adult member and then look at the relevant line in the quote. That is your premium.
    You need to prove your income by completing an income form and submitting 3-months payslips and bank statements.

    If you want unlimited private hospital cover and mostly unlimited day-to-day benefits - from day 1 - for an affordable premium then, THIS IS THE BEST PLAN FOR YOU!

    The plan is ideal for pensioners and families on a strict budget!
    Way better than any hospital insurance plan!
