Even more benefits with our Health Platform

Every Momentum Health membership includes Health Platform benefits at no extra cost.

Some of the healthcare benefits include:

  • Market-leading maternity programme.
  • Annual health assessment.
  • Annual flu vaccine (children between 6 months and 5 years, beneficiaries 65 and older and high-risk beneficiaries).
  • Annual dental check-up.
  • Baby immunisations (up to age 6).
  • 24-hour health and medical advice through our Health Line.
  • Emergency evacuation via Netcare911.

The benefits for screening and health checks enable you to be better informed about your health status and, since these are funded by the scheme, your savings and day-to-day benefits will last longer too.
