Pensioners, did you know that we offer wellness and preventative screenings 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. For your convenience, we offer pensioners the opportunity to schedule an appointment with Biofitt Wellness, who will conduct screenings at your place of residence.

Pensioner Roadshows

Good health starts with knowing your health. Bankmed offers wellness initiatives and preventative care programmes that help us to identify your risks at an early stage, in order for us to manage your health optimally. At Bankmed we strongly believe all members should have a Personal Health Assessment (PHA), but this is especially important if you are a pensioner. Knowing and understanding your health is the best way to improve it.

We offer screenings and tests that are conducted by Healthcare Professionals to monitor and manage your health. These Healthcare Professionals will be able to offer advice and answer any health-related queries.

Read more about the positive effects of ageing and the benefits offered for you and your health. These benefits include virtual consultations which we’ve introduced for you, so you can consult a participating GP using a Mobile App without having to go for an in-person consultation.
