Discovery Prepaid Health Cover is an exciting Innovation

Discovery Prepaid Health is a fascinating and exciting concept for every South African who wants access to good medical care. The cover works through voucher buying.

You get a R300 GP consultation voucher complete with medicine to treat your illness for 5 to 7 days.

You buy the vouchers and then redeem them for private healthcare services at a very fair, competitive rate. There is also no limit to the number of vouchers you can buy. That means you can actually reserve funds in your prepaid balance to use when you need it in the future.

No registration fees and free usage of platform

The actual Discovery Prepaid Health Platform is totally free to use and there are no registration fees. The beauty about these vouchers is that they make a brilliant gift for someone who could use some good medical care.

To use the vouchers, you upload them to the Prepaid Health platform. Once it is uploaded you redeem the voucher value at the doctor in the network. 

These are primary healthcare consultation vouchers

You aren’t able to use the vouchers for emergency treatments at a hospital. The vouchers are for primary healthcare consultations and medicine only.

Nonetheless this is good news for people who are without a healthcare plan but who can now have access to a private doctor and medicines. Having access to good primary healthcare can help steer one away from a date in hospital.
