Renew Your Student Healthcare Membership

Renew membership

Renew your Momentum Medical Scheme membership to comply with your study visa and academic registration requirements.

Are you a full-time student on a study visa in South Africa? If so, you need to make sure that your student medical aid membership is renewed before your current one expires. This is because your visa and academic institution may require you to have medical cover for the duration of your studies.

You can also renew your membership by calling Momentum Medical Scheme on 0860 102 493.

Renewing your Momentum Medical Scheme membership is the best way to ensure that you have the medical cover you need to stay healthy and study in South Africa. You can extend or top up your medical cover to comply with your study visa and academic registration requirements.
