Momentum Health, currently South Africa’s fifth largest medical scheme, at present serves the needs of more than 90 000 principal members. It is characterised by a highly favourable average age profile of scheme principal members – the youngest among the ten largest open medical schemes.
The scheme has managed ongoing growth with a sustainable membership profile over the past five years and is firmly on track to continue this trend in 2011. The transfer of Ingwe Health Plan’s members into the Momentum Health in September has offered a stable and secure platform for Ingwe’s members, coupled with the benefits of being associated with a well-known brand and a wider range of benefit options. Momentum Health on the other hand has benefited from additional membership growth, while enhancing its overall sustainability and future positioning.
Momentum Health was recently recognised as one of the leading healthcare brands in the country, by being placed second in the Sunday Times Consumer Survey for the second year running.
