Comprehensive day-to-day benefits via our contracted network providers. Day-to-day benefits refer to medical treatment received out of hospital (or in the casualty ward of a hospital). These benefits generally include services from doctors, specialists, dentists, optometrists, radiologists and pathologists, as well as prescribed medicine.
The Ingwe Option offers unlimited private hospital cover at 100% of the Momentum Medical Scheme Rate to provide you with peace of mind. The hospital benefit provides cover for hospitalisation, if treatment is clinically appropriate and has been pre-authorised by the Scheme.
Virtual doctor consultations
The Ingwe option offers 3 virtual doctor consultations per beneficiary per year from the GP Virtual Consultation Network, which includes Hello Doctor. Consultations include scripting of medication where required.
Medical emergency transportation
Netcare 911 is Momentum Medical Scheme’s preferred service provider for unlimited medical emergency transport in South Africa.
If you need to visit an emergency room / casualty over a weekend or after hours, you have 1 visit per person or 2 visits per family per year for emergency / casualty and out-of-network doctor visits. You pay the first R105 of the visit and then need to contact us for authorisation within 72 hours after the visit.
Momentum Medical Scheme has various communication channels to keep you informed of important Scheme developments. Kindly ensure that you update your personal contact details, especially your email address and mobile number.
