Provider Choice

Our cover options give you the flexibility to choose your healthcare providers - hospitals, doctors, and pharmacies. You can choose to make use of Any, Associated, or State provider. When you choose to use Momentum Health’s Associated providers, you can save up to R1 000 on your monthly contributions.

How does it work?

If you're a member of Custom, Incentive or Extender Option, you can pay lower monthly medical aid contributions, by using Momentum Health's Associated providers.

Associated providers includes private hospitals, general practitioners and pharmacies.

State healthcare facilities can also be used to receive your chronic benefits, which will reduce your monthly medical aid contributions.

Important to know

When choosing Associated hospital provider

What happens if I don't use one of the Associated hospitals?

If you choose Associated hospitals as your preferred provider for Major Medical benefits and do not use one of the Associated hospitals, a 30% co-payment will apply on the hospital account. Momentum Health will be responsible for 70% of the negotiated tariff, provided authorisation would have been granted according to the rules of the Scheme.

When choosing Associated chronic provider

What happens if I don't use one of the Associated GP's?

If you choose Associated chronic provider, you'll have to obtain any chronic prescription from an Associated GP and chronic medication from Medipost, subject to an entry-level formulary. If you choose to obtain your chronic prescription from a non-Associated GP, the Scheme will pay 50% of the Momentum Health Rate for the consultation.

What happens if I don't obtain chronic medication from Medipost?

Similarly, if you choose to obtain your chronic medication from a pharmacy other than Medipost, the Scheme will pay only 50% of the formulary price. If you choose State as your chronic provider, you must choose one of the designated State healthcare facilities to obtain your chronic medication, subject to the State formulary.

When changing provider choice selected

When can I make changes to the choice of healthcare providers selected?

Changes to the choice of healthcare providers selected can only be exercised when option changes are done at the end of every year, to be effective from 1 January. Regardless of the choice of provider, the benefits available will remain the same.
