IHS helps you get more from Vitality

As a leading provider of Discovery products (and all major medical aid schemes), Informed Health Care Solutions (IHS) brings top class experience in healthcare and life cover for both corporate and personal requirements. And with 20 years serving thousands of satisfied clients we can confidently claim to be among South Africa’s most expert providers and facilitators of Discovery offerings.

We also offer some very special skills in leveraging the benefits of Vitality membership…

Why get Vitality through IHS

Discovery products are among the best on the market, but can be complex to structure for full benefits. That’s why specialist expertise like ours is what makes the difference between a lifestyle plan you only use occasionally and one that becomes a valuable and enduring aspect of your life.

By choosing IHS to translate your needs into effective insurance solutions you can rest assured your cover has been structured to meet your requirements best, both now and in the future. And we’ll make sure you get the most from Vitality at the same time.

In short, you’ll get the right Discovery Health or Life cover, integrated with Vitality for maximum benefits at the best rates.

You’ll also enjoy added value from:

  • Our role as mediator between medical scheme and client (you).
  • Up-to-date knowledge of the Healthcare industry via trend monitoring of specific schemes and their financial stability.
  • Market surveys with comparisons of scheme benefits and premiums.
  • Assisting employees who wish to continue cover after leaving their employer.
  • Support and education for joining or changing schemes.
  • The IHS Helpline (0860 101 295) to help you with queries, disputes, administration procedures and understanding changes to benefits and options.

We still protect your interests first

IHS is still founded on the principles laid down when we first formed 20 years ago: to grow our business by putting our clients needs first. This has led to a base of more than 7,000 clients today – people who regularly refer us to friends, family and business associates for the same personal service that so many other insurance providers have forsaken in the interests of “efficiency”.

How we help you get Vitality

We started working Vitality when it was introduced in 1998 as part of Discovery Health and have helped countless people bring its benefits into their lives. Now Vitality is available to Discovery Life members too. So we can apply our expert knowledge to help clients, from Johannesburg to Cape Town, enjoy Vitality at vastly reduced rates, and with top class life, illness and disability cover included.

This is why we’ve introduced the Get To Gold Programme – to help people like you benefit from Vitality’s extensive benefits while being able to match, or better, their Discovery Life and Health premiums through the savings they make.

“Our company has been a client of Informed Healthcare Solutions for the past 10 years. It has been an unbelievable service, one of which Informed Healthcare Solutions can be extremely proud… We would be more than happy to continue our association with such a superior service company.”
