This includes the Discovery Health Medical Scheme, the country’s largest open medical scheme and the only one to enjoy an AA rating for its claim paying ability, the highest possible credit rating from international rating agency, Global Credit Ratings.

We pioneered consumer-driven healthcare in South Africa with the introduction of innovations like the Medical Savings Account and wellness programme, Vitality.
