Discovery says members can apply to pay for medical aid from their savings account
Discovery has informed its medical aid scheme members they can apply to have their monthly fees paid for from their medical savings account.
“For members who are on health plans with a medical savings account (MSA), Discovery Health Medical Scheme will allow members with a sufficient MSA balance to use their positive balance to pay for their total medical scheme contribution for up to three months,” states the Discovery website.
“A positive MSA refers to the ‘cash’ balance and does not include the upfront MSA you get at the start of the calendar year.”
Discovery said it will pay a member’s total medical scheme contribution from their MSA and adjust the MSA balance accordingly.
