Improve the health and wellbeing of your employees while growing your bottom line and company profits
Increased absenteeism and a consequent reduction in productivity has become a reality for many businesses that do not provide access to even the most basic primary healthcare services to their employees.
Research has shown that absenteeism leads to as much as ten days of downtime per employee every year. In most instances absenteeism comes as a result of a lack of access to healthcare due to financial constraints.
Affordable, quality healthcare – now within your reach
There has never been a more critical time to broaden access to healthcare and we are fully committed to bringing the benefits of quality care to many more people.
We work in close collaboration with our clients to ensure that employees are provided with affordable access to healthcare services. This will stand employers in good stead by reducing absenteeism and strengthening their businesses. We aim to help our clients to build morale, solidarity, loyalty and ultimately good labour relations in the workplace.

How it works
As an employer, you make a pre-determined monthly deposit into a dedicated bank account that is used to administer your employee health plan as well as for funding your employee’s claims.
We will apply the funds deposited to the agreed healthcare claims and the pre-determined administration fees. Please note that administration fees include the use of our innovative telephonic and digital health management tools.
You will receive monthly invoices outlining full details of utilisation along with a monthly reconciliation of the remaining balance in your MediClubTM Reimbursement Account (MRA).
The MRA balance belongs to you and can be carried over to future periods, or used to pay for agreed expenses. Together with you, we define when funds in the MRA are available for reimbursement, and what types of medical expenses qualify for reimbursement.
