February 20, 2015
What are Discovery Vitality benefits?
Discovery Vitality is a wellness programme linked to the Discovery Health products. They are designed to encourage members to lead healthy, active lifestyles by rewarding them with Discovery Vitality benefits.
Discovery South Africa is South Africa’s largest health insurer, offering a range of Discovery medical aid plans. The scheme has the widest range of health cover on offer. And Discovery enables its members to select the Discovery medical aid plan that best suits their pocket.
Members of Discovery Health plans, or holders of a Discovery Life Insurance are eligible for the Vitality programme and enjoy the Discovery Vitality benefits.
Vitality helps you to get healthier. The plan gives you the knowledge, tools, personalised wellness programmes and motivation through Discovery Vitality benefits.
Discovery Health Vitality is based the fact that Vitality members have lower healthcare costs than non-Vitality members. Therefore the more a member engages with Vitality, the lower his or her healthcare costs. And therefore the greater the Discovery Vitality benefits or rewards. This is both in terms of feeling and being healthier. Also members can get discounts and cash back rewards through Discovery Vitality partners.
On joining Discovery Vitality, members start at Blue Vitality status. Later, as they engage in the Discovery Vitality programme by knowing and improving their health, they progress. First to Bronze, then Silver, Gold and Diamond status which qualifies them for increased Vitality benefits..
Discovery Vitality has a three pronged approach.
- Know your health. Undergo health, fitness and nutrition assessments to understand how healthy you are;
- Improve your health. Join the Vitality LiveWell Programmes. Then use the Vitality partners and digital tools for savings and tracking your health and wellness activities; and finally
- Enjoy the rewards of improving your health by both getting healthier, and earning Vitality points. These will increase your Vitality status and Discovery Vitality benefits.
