Bankmed National Pensioner Project 2017

Pensioners, did you know that we offer wellness and preventative screenings and vaccinations in the comfort of your home?*

As part of our commitment to your good health, Bankmed offers the very best in wellness and preventative care screenings and vaccinations. For your convenience, we offer pensioners the opportunity to schedule an appointment with Biofitt Wellness, who will conduct screenings and vaccinations at your place of residence.

With your approval - Biofitt Wellness will conduct the following integrated screenings and vaccinations:

  • Personal Health Assessment (PHA)
  • HIV/AIDS counselling and testing (HCT)
  • Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) – finger prick methodology
  • Influenza vaccinations
  • Pneumococcal vaccinations – vaccination against pneumonia.

These screenings and vaccinations will be paid from your insured benefits - it will not affect your day-to-day benefits or your savings. The screening initiative and service provider will reflect on your Bankmed claims statement.

A registered nurse or biokineticist will conduct the various screenings and vaccinations. All consumables will be provided by the clinical team.

For more information regarding the screenings and vaccinations and to schedule your appointment, please call Biofitt Wellness on 021 820 4858 or 021 811 4858 during office hours (8:00 to 17:00).
