Bonitas offers wellness and preventative care benefits on all our plans to help our members lead healthier and happier lives. This includes a free annual screening check, flu vaccine and HIV test and mammograms. These benefits are in addition to your savings and day to day benefits, so you get more value for money.
The wellness screening is made up of carefully selected tests to help you get a clear picture of your health. These tests are the first step in detecting serious chronic conditions such as hypertension, heart disease and diabetes.
We offer a free wellness screening for each member, once a year, on all our plans. This includes:
- A blood pressure test
- A blood glucose test
- A cholesterol test
- A BMI test, and
- A waist to hip ratio measurement
Once you have completed the wellness screening, you can then access the Wellness Extender benefit. The Wellness Extender can be used to pay for extra consultations with a GP, biokineticist, dietician or physiotherapist or a programme to stop smoking.
Where can I do a wellness screening?
You can complete your wellness screening at a corporate wellness day or a Dischem, Clicks or Pick ’n Pay pharmacy. All tests must be done at the same time.
How do I access the Wellness Extender?
Once you have completed a wellness screening you can access the Wellness Extender Benefit to use for extra consultations with a GP, biokineticist, dietician, physiotherapist or a programme to stop smoking. Each adult dependant must complete a wellness screening to access the benefit. However, child dependants under 21 can access the wellness extender if one adult dependant has completed the wellness screening.
Please note: All claims for the Wellness Extender will be paid at the Bonitas Rate.
