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 what you earn, so the same benefits apply for every member - irrespective of your earning ability!

You use the higher income of either adult member and then look at that amount in the quote. That's premium.
You prove your income by submitting a form and 3-months of 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 -
