Update on the amalgamation with Bonitas

The Competition Commission, Competition Tribunal, and Council for Medical Schemes have now approved the amalgamation of NMAS with Bonitas, with an effective date of 1 January 2022.

In the meantime, both NMAS and Bonitas have been hard at work behind the scenes to ensure that the transfer goes as smoothly as possible.

In the case of members transferring to our chosen amalgamation partner, Bonitas, the transition should be seamless, as both are administered by Medscheme. As a reminder, see this fact sheet for more Bonitas offerings.

Remember that if you take no action, you will automatically be transferred to the default Bonitas option as suggested by the NMAS actuaries.
You can find all the information you need about the amalgamation, as well as handy decision-making tools and links, here.

The option selection closing date is 26 November 2021.
