About National HealthCare Group

National HealthCare Group was established to bring affordable and reliable private primary healthcare services to low-income employer groups. Since its inception in 2017, the group has introduced a series of ground-breaking primary healthcare solutions, entrenching itself as the provider of choice in the low-cost and emerging segments of the healthcare market. An extensive doctor network, well situated throughout South Africa, and a hands-on business philosophy has allowed the group to develop an intimate understanding of the needs of the low-cost market. National HealthCare has consistently grown lives under management within the group to more than 40 000 beneficiaries by providing administration and managed care services for our clients.
