South Africa’s largest medical scheme administrator, Discovery Health, is launching a prepaid health platform, accessible to all, with the objective of improved access to affordable, quality healthcare. FA News reports that from December 2020, individuals will be able to purchase a R300,00 General Practitioner consultation voucher redeemable at any dispensing GP within Discovery Health’s prepaid network, including any medicines dispensed by the doctor following the consultation. “The solution is designed to appeal to non-insured consumers of private healthcare; but is also highly relevant to […] existing medical scheme members who can, within 60 seconds, buy a voucher and share the voucher link with anybody else, [for example] a parent […] for a student away from home; a sibling […] for a loved one some distance away; an employer for an employee and so on,” said Discovery Health CEO Dr Ryan Noach.
