The Generation Health Medical Fund

Generation Health is an open medical fund launched by Sovereign Health. They have offer a viable alternative approach and healthcare in synch with changing times. The Generation Health Medical Fund benefit design is modelled along the “new generation” health concept which offers healthcare cover that is radically different from the traditional approach, and is relevant to the prevailing economic circumstances of individual members.

Contributions are in two portions “Core contributions” and “Medical Savings Account (MSA) & Routine Benefit Account (RBA) contributions”. The core contributions fund insured benefits, and the MSA contributions fund the out-of hospital benefits. Core contributions are based on the members’ age as at the end of the calendar year; the members’ age is also used to determine the spouse’s contribution. Children under 18 years pay the child rate while those 18 years and older pay age-related contributions.

  • Monthly contribution percentages go towards MSA’s
  • Members with five or more children on the scheme who are all under 18 years enjoy free cover for the fifth (5th) and subsequent children
  • Members must be under 70 years of age at the time of joining

Rules for Plan Changes:

When members join Generation Health, their “anniversary date” is recorded as 01 January. The “anniversary date” determines the annual entitlement for services where annual limits apply. Members who join during the course of the year will have prorated benefits for the remainder of the year.  Members should note that changing Plan options can only be done at the beginning of the calendar year.
