    Healthcare Provider Network

    A substantial healthcare provider network of more than 12 000 providers, including doctors, pharmacies and other service providers. The National HealthCare Group can lay claim to one of the largest independent provider networks in South Africa. This network forms the foundation for a full range of reliable healthcare services, including day-to-day primary care services, screening and management of chronic diseases, diagnostics such as X-rays and blood tests, optometry, dentistry and wellness management.

  • benefits-icon-9

    Financially Innovative Services

    A full suite of financially innovative services which are underpinned by negotiated service provider discounts, specifically designed low-cost treatment protocols, and pro-active member engagement.

Above all, we work with our clients to ensure that their members, clients and staff are given affordable access to healthcare services that will stand them in good stead by reducing absenteeism and strengthening their businesses. We aim to help our clients build morale, solidarity, loyalty and ultimately good labour relations in the workplace.

FOR EMPLOYERS

It is a proven fact that absenteeism affects the productivity, efficiency, and profitability of businesses and that it has the potential to erode the bottom line of even the best run companies. In fact, if we were to calculate the financial losses incurred within the South African economy as a result of absenteeism in the workplace it would amount to several billion in lost revenue.

Welcome to BeWell – Enabled by employers.
Empowering for employees.

Introducing tried and tested, affordable private primary healthcare solutions for businesses.

Human capital is arguably the most valuable – and most complex – of all resources to manage. For businesses to optimise input they need to effect positive change in the productivity of employees across all spheres and levels of their operations. But how is this best achieved?

Access to affordable primary healthcare is at the heart of human potential, productivity and prosperity. This is where BeWell, a reliable and highly affordable healthcare solution provided by National HealthCare in partnership with Standard Bank, comes in.

With BeWell we aim to reduce absenteeism, enhance productivity and strengthen the bottom line of your business by improving access to quality healthcare.

Affordable, accessible private primary healthcare

Even though access to healthcare is a basic human right in our country, many employers find that their employees are unable to access the quality healthcare they need due to financial constraints. For most lower-income employees, the cost of belonging to a medical scheme has unfortunately become prohibitively expensive.

BeWell changes all of this.

This remarkably competitive and distinctive employer-funded healthcare solution makes primary healthcare affordable and accessible. BeWell brings you a fully flexible funding mechanism with customisable benefit options, at a highly competitive price – all supported through a nationwide medical network with omnichannel care.

With BeWell your employees have unlimited, instant access to telemedicine via a WhatsApp chat with qualified nurses. Where needed, employers will be referred to a network of over 3 400 private doctors for an in-person consultation. In addition, your employees will also be able to access over 8 000 other healthcare providers, including 3 500 pharmacies throughout South Africa.

BeWell delivers quick, connected, quality care so that those in need of healthcare services can access that help when they need to, without the hold-ups, hidden fees and long waiting times.

Few things can make more of a difference to a person’s comfort and quality of life than having the freedom to easily consult a healthcare professional when they need to.

With BeWell your employees can now be at their best – at home or at work.
