Bonitas aims to offer you the best support and service

The Trustees chose Bonitas as a preferred amalgamation partner as they viewed this route as optimal for most NMAS members. We’ve asked Bonitas to offer NMAS members some more information about their undertaking to you, should you transfer to Bonitas:

Additional benefits for added value

Bonitas believes in giving you more value for money by providing you and your beneficiaries with additional benefits, over and above your savings, day-to-day, and other benefits.

Examples of these benefits are:

  • Flu, pneumococcal, and Covid-19 vaccines
  • HIV, Mammogram, Prostate, Stool, and three Covid-19 tests
  • Two Covid-19 screening (including virtual) consultations by a GP, specialist, or nurse.
  • A wellness screening, which is a free annual check-up that includes blood pressure, blood glucose, BMI, waist-to-hip ratio, and cholesterol measurements. By completing a wellness screening or online wellness assessment, you automatically activate your Benefit Booster, which opens up to R2 730 in additional benefits. You can use this additional benefit to visit a GP, biokineticist, dietician or physiotherapist, or to go for blood tests and x-rays, or to get medicine.
  • Our Maternity Programme, which offers expectant members support and pregnancy education during their maternity journey. The programme includes weekly stage- appropriate SMSs, online antenatal classes, health advice, and more. As a pregnant member you also get a beautiful baby bag to congratulate you on the arrival of your bundle of joy. All members who are at least 24 weeks pregnant may register for the Bonitas baby bag.

You can access your medical aid benefits and more, anywhere you go, anywhere you are and at any time when you download or register on our various platforms.
