What does it cover?

The Extender Option provides cover for hospitalisation in private hospitals with no overall annual limit. You can choose to have access to any hospital, or choose to receive a discount on your contribution by electing to use a specific list of private hospitals (referred to as Associated hospitals).

For chronic treatment you can choose to have access to any doctor for your prescriptions and any pharmacy for your chronic medication. Or, you can choose to receive a further discount on your contribution by electing to use a list of Associated doctors for your chronic prescription and Medipost courier pharmacy for your chronic medication. Alternatively, you can elect to use State facilities for your chronic prescription and chronic medication to obtain the maximum contribution discount.

25% of your contribution goes to a dedicated Medical Savings account to cover your day-to-day expenses. If you need more day-to-day cover, you can make use of the HealthSaver+.

Our Health Platform Benefit provides cover for a range of benefits such as preventative screening tests, certain check-ups and more.

Major Medical Benefits are available at Any or Associated hospitals.

Hospitalisation
  • Associated specialists are covered in full, while other specialists are covered up to 200% of the Momentum Medical Scheme Rate. Hospital accounts are covered in full at the rate agreed upon with the hospital group. No overall annual limit applies.
  • No annual limit on high and intensive care.
  • No annual limit on maternity confinement and neonatal intensive care.
  • R500 000 oncology cover per beneficiary every year, thereafter a 20% co-payment applies. Momentum Medical Scheme reference pricing applies to chemotherapy and adjuvant medication.

Day-to-day Benefit

This benefit covers your everyday medical expenses, such as doctors' visits and prescribed medication.

Day-to-day Benefits are available at Any or Associated providers.

Savings
25% of your contribution goes to a dedicated Medical Savings account, to cover your day-to-day expenses.

Your Savings account is credited in advance for the year and any unused Savings balance at the end of the year will be carried forward to the following benefit year.

If the Savings are not enough to cover annual day-to-day expenses, you will have a self-funding gap to pay out-of-pocket, up to the Threshold of R23 900 (principal member), R20 900 (per adult dependant), R6 900 (per child dependant).

Although claims add up to the Threshold at 100% of the Momentum Medical Scheme Rate, you may claim a higher amount from Savings if the provider charges more than the Momentum Medical Scheme Rate. This will result in a bigger self-funding gap. You can use HealthSaver+ to fund your self-funding gap.

Once the Threshold has been reached, claims will be paid from Extended Cover at the Momentum Medical Scheme Rate, subject to certain sub-limits. These day-to-day limits accumulate before and after the Threshold.

General practitioners
If you choose Any or State as your chronic provider, we cover 100% of the Momentum Medical Scheme Rate. If you choose Associated provider for your chronic needs, we cover 100% of the Momentum Medical Scheme Rate for Associated GPs and 70% for non-Associated GPs.

Eye care
You get R4 140 to use on eye care per beneficiary. The maximum amount you can spend on a frame is R2 260.

Dentistry
There is no limit for basic dentistry; covered at 100% of the Momentum Medical Scheme Rate from your available Day-to-day Benefits. Specialised dentistry is paid from available day-to-day benefits, limited to R14 000 per beneficiary and R36 600 per family per year. Both in- and out-of-hospital dental specialist accounts accumulate towards the day-to-day limit.

General anaesthesia for children under 7, maxillo-facial surgery (excluding implants) and impacted wisdom teeth are covered in-hospital. The anaesthetist account is covered up to 200% of the Momentum Medical Scheme Rate. Hospital accounts are paid in full at the negotiated rate, and the dentist, dental specialist and maxillo-facial surgeon accounts are paid from available day-to-day benefits, subject to day-to-day limits.

In the case of maxillo-facial trauma, the in-hospital dentist, dental specialist or maxillo-facial surgeon will be payable from the Major Medical Benefit.

Dental implants, including the cost of implants, and the anaesthetist and hospital accounts, are payable from available day-to-day benefits, subject to day-to-day limits.

In-hospital dentistry is subject to pre-authorisation and a co-payment of R1 500 applies per authorisation.

Medicine
Prescribed medication is covered up to R18 200 per beneficiary and overall cover up to R34 400 per family every year. Over-the-counter medication is paid out-of-pocket or from HealthSaver if applicable.

Mental health
We cover up to R20 600 per family every year.

Specialist visits
There is no limit to specialists. We cover you at 100% of the Momentum Medical Scheme Rate from your available Day-to-day Benefits.

+ You may choose to make use of additional products available from Momentum Metropolitan Holdings Limited (Momentum), to seamlessly enhance your medical aid.
