Personal Health Assessment
Your well-being is important to us and we know that through preventative healthcare it is possible to diagnose underlying health issues earlier. Being healthy goes much further than not feeling ill. Even if you don't have any symptoms, your body can hide the early signs of a medical condition.
All Bankmed members and beneficiaries older than 18 years have access to Wellness Benefits which cover services related to preventative tests and health assessments. If a condition is left untreated or the symptoms go unnoticed without confirmation of the root cause, the condition can progress to a stage where serious intervention is needed. Such intervention may include expensive surgery and intensive medical care. With the Wellness Benefit our members have access to essential tests for early diagnosis and preventative care purposes.
The Bankmed Wellness Experience gives you the opportunity to have a series of tests done, including the Personal Health Assessment, at your place of work to identify any areas of potential risk.
As part of your Personal Health Assessment, a Healthcare Professional will measure your cholesterol, blood pressure and blood glucose, as well as calculating your body mass index and waist circumference. These measures tell you if you are at risk of developing kidney disease, heart disease, diabetes type 2, or of having a heart attack or stroke.
You may choose to have HIV/AIDS counselling and testing done at the same time.
